User Comments about Centrum Multivitamin
26 Mar 2017 I've been feeling horrible since I started to take centrum, I can't barely eat, I feel sick all the time and super tired. Some days I had fever and I had a rash next to my mouth. I was wondering whether someone had something similar, and if so whether it should be something to be worried about. I am having some medical test this week.. Although the doctor doesn't think that is because of the multivitamin supplement. I am pretty sure it is, I only feel like this when I take it. I started to take it and then I felt bad, I stopped and I was feeling better but since my doctor said that centrum wouldn't cause me this effects I started to take it again, and back again feeling bad.

02 Oct 2016 I am 32 years old. I took it for three days, i were feeling normal but on forth day, when I took it, I were feeling pain in chest, nausea, breathing difficulty and pain in stomach and ribs. I took plenty of water to feel relax. I were feeling that I might fell down on the floor or I might need to call ambulance. It made me very conscious about the use of medicines like that.
