    I take B6 and when I come off my VLCD shakes etc, I will take a multi vitamin without iron.

    I think you should take a good multivitamin as a minimum. They won't do you any harm. :D

    Hmm, I don't know about on Atkins, but on Pig to Twig they tell you to take vitamins.

    I don't need to take them whilst on shakes as get my vits from them and don't want to OD as some are not good if you have too much.

    I hate meds as well love, I won't even take them when I'm ill. *SHE* has to force feed me them.

    Having said that I took a multivitamin until I went on maint and still take a fish oil for my joints. I don't look on them as pills.

    You should take a multi on Atkins just to make sure you are getting enough vitamins in.

    What specific issues do you need to address? If nothing in particular then a multivit/multi mineral is a good start.
