    I take mine in the morning - multivitamins at night might keep you awake?

    Haha, I hadn't heard that multivits can keep you awake? But I do take mine on a full stomach - i.e. after eating - otherwise they give me a stomach ache and make me vom! Each to their own eh! :D

    What vitamins do you all take? I'm currently taking hair and nail vitamins and some multivitamins. Do I need to take anything else? Xx

    Roos do you mean jerky knee (it's actually called restless leg syndrome)? I get that and take a potassium tablet before I go to bed, sorts it out very quickly.

    You can get good multivits without iron - though I've never found the amount in multis bungs me up - which I think is the reason it's not suggested.
