    Nope, only multivitamins and heart health pills.

    Yes! I take vitamins along with some natural hormones. I also juice and try to eat as much "raw" foods as possible.

    Yes, and I love them. Mine are in an Isotonix form, they get absorbed. I take an anti-oxidant (OPC-3) B complex, Acai, Vitamin D, Calcium. Start my day with a cold, powder probiotic. Quality Fish oil capsule 2X daily..

    A multivitamin, calcium, echinacea/goldenseal acutely during virus season, frozen yogurt (sweet tooth) for its probiotic benefit, and here's the big one: I've just discovered the immense benefits of taking additional D3, especially if, like me, you don't get enough sun or tend to wear sunscreen to block UV rays. My energy has tripled since adding a daily tablet of 1000iu D3.

    Yes, I take nutritional supplements. But these pills take with breakfast as well as full stomach.

    Yes, but at the recommendation of my doctor only!

    Vitamin D (plus calcium) for bone health, after undergoing a couple of treatments that decreased bone density, and after doctors discovered my vitamin D levels were almost nothing.
    Vitamin B (complex, slow-release) to help with tiredness associated with fibromyalgia and chronic pain.  Potassium and magnesium also, if I'm having trouble with cramping muscles, but I usually try to get this from foods.
    And finally, cranberry every now and again to support damaged kidneys and waterworks.

    D3 (the best form) in 5,000 IU is my daily (but then I own a health store; really though it is not expensive and ongoing research is finding that our bodies use it in many more ways than we ever suspected.  If you have a health/supplements question, send me an email.  (OMG! What did I just open myself up to!)  No one but a medical professional can tell you what to do; (no real freedome of speech in the US?)  But, I can tell you what I would do, if you ask your question that way. ;o)
