Does anyone here take multivitamins?
I'm looking for one to take (maybe). The problem is I have trouble swallowing pills, but I don't want to take the childrens chewables b/c they seem to be all sugar. Any suggestions?

We take Centrum Performance multivitamins. If you have trouble swallowing them you could cut them in half and take one half at a time or try crushing them and putting the powder in your food. My mom used to take her medicine with milk because she said the thicker liquid helped her swallow the pills.

A trick i use to swallow pills is stick it in a bite of yogurt or banana, I can't ever feel them going down

I have always taken ONE A DAY vitamins. I also agree that you can spit them in two. ONE A DAY also comes in liquid form. That would help.

How about the Viactiv multi-vitamins? They're women's chewables, and they come in all kind of flavours. Having tried a few, I've decided to get them as my occasional chocolate treat. You can google "viactiv" for more explanation...
