23 Jan 2018 I was just wondering whether to use Centrum or not? But prior to that I thought of reading the side effects of the Multivitamins. Thanks to those who have posted about the negative side of it.

21 Jan 2018 Ever since i started taking centrum, i've been experiencing many health issues, sore throat issues, non-stop cough and fatigue. This has been the worst decision in my life. Please stay AWAY from centrum.

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.
