I really want to take vitamins as I'm sure I would benefit from it. However, I always feel light-headed when I take them. I thought it was because I was taking GNC vitamins (which contain much more than the recommended amount of vitamins), but right now I'm just taking a generic Kirkland Signature vitamin and I still feel light-headed.
I was hoping to find out if someone else can relate to this. Would taking liquid vitamins be a better solution?
If taking vitamins really is making me light-headed, shouldn't it go away once I stop taking the vitamins? It seems as though, even when I stop taking them, I still get light-headed (which makes me wonder if it's not the vitamins at all). Is it possible to still have these symptoms even after I stop taking the vitamins?
well obviously its not the vitamins and taking a vitamin is simply not enough especiallly if its a kirkland brand, those are man made vitamins theyre not derived from living foods so your body dosent absorb them properly also on those kinds of vitamins they could be coverd with somthing to make it slippery that u could be allergic to, i suggest to go to a health food store and theyre will be specific herbs or vitamins that stop dizziness and try it for a week but go to the doctors u could have an ear infection or really bad sinus blockage and not even know it, well good luck and if it still dosent go away do some research on google lol
My son had the problem one time and I had to take him home from high school. Then, I asked around and found that if he doesn't eat a full meal first, that the vitamins, which are catalysts, will have nothing to work on except that which is already in his system. Try eating some vegetables too, before taking your vitamins. That will give them more stuff to work on.
I have gone through 3 different types of vitamins from very expensive all natural to inexpensive store brand. This is over the past 6 months. The inexpensive brand does not have anything added.. ie: herbs. There definitely is something in the vitamins. I also tried SpiruTein health drink and after a few days it did the same thing. I always eat breakfast and it usually happens 1.5 to 2 hours after the vitamin is taken. When I discontinue them I am fine the next day. Any other suggestions?
Hello, I started taking vitamins five days ago, about 5 in total in the morning ranging from magnesium, to calcium, etc, (suggested by a oriental medicine doctor) and I'm not feeling too good. I'm feeling lightheaded, etc. when I raised this to my doctor, he said, you're just eliminating the toxins out of your system. It's normal..
Is this normal? I don't think I can continue feeling this way for too long...
i've been taking vitamins for quite a while now, and this is the first time i've felt "high" or light-headed off of them. i took some of my mom's cheap vitamin c's. i think the lower shelf brands have additives in it and don't give you all the nutrition that you should be getting. instead giving the replaced chemicals in it. they should start selling this stuff on the street. kids could be getting high off of cheap generic vitamins rather then crack-cocaine and heroin ! jk
Felt the same when started on my vitamin but take it at night now before bed because of drowsiness and feel fine next day. Need to be getting enough sleep and eating well l think, well, what works with me.
I was feeling light headed after taking vitamins. I stopped taking the vitamins and felt better after about a week of not putting any supplements in my body. Come to find out, the vitamins RDA was too high for each vitamin in the supplement. I was also going to the bathroom too often and found out that my body was getting rid of the excess biotin. So stop taking the vitamain and just be patient until all of the supplements are out of your body.
