    The best thing to do Rach is go and ask the pharmacist ....make sure you tell him your on xenical also ....my pharmacist sold me multivitamins that people would normally get on perscription but I have learnt to take these horse tablets lol....but I feel so much better on them :):)

    there are chewable and liquid multi vitamins that you can get so maybe it would be best to look out for those.

    I too have trouble but I find the multibionta immune ones great and I don't have trouble with those as they are fairly smooth.

    I take Forceval they are large tablets but it could be worth asking about and seeing if you can take contents out of gelatine shell so you are able to swallow ....just a thought as some tablets you can do that :):)

    Sall they recommend you take a multivitamin with Alli and Xenical ......they say to take it as far away from Xenical as possible so you don't lose essential vitamins ...so bedtime is best as they work whilst you sleep....I have noticed how much more alert I am since taking them :):)

    i struggle with drinking a lot of water. i am lucky if i drink 1 litre a day let alone the recommended 2 and dont really eat a lot of veg so i feel i need them personally for a boost.

    well done on the weight loss. that is brilliant :D

    Its because the tablets can stop your body absorbing all the vital vitamins from food!!
