User Comments about Centrum Multivitamin
22 Mar 2015 SUDDENLY STARTED EXPERIENCING STOMACH PAIN AND CHEST PAIN/PALPITATIONS - THOUGHT IT MAY HAVE BEEN TO DO WITH THE MENOPAUSE, AS I BLAME EVERYTHING ON THE MENOPAUSE, BUT THEN REALISED THAT I ONLY STARTED HAVING THESE SYMPTOMS SINCE TAKING CENTRUM MULTI VITAMINS. I CHECKED ONLINE FOR SIDE EFFECTS OF CENTRUM AND STOMACH PAIN AND CHEST PAIN WAS LISTED AS ONE OF THE SIDE EFFECTS. STOPPED TAKING CENTRUM STRAIGHT AWAY AND I'M GLAD TO SAY THAT I AM NO LONGER EXPERIENCING THESE PAINS. ALL TABLETS HAVE SIDE EFFECTS - EVEN VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS.
