One, NEVER take them on an empty stomach. Once I realized this I never felt Nausea again. Two, you are taking way too much. I take 50 mg of Zinc and 200 mcg of Chromium. You don't ever want to overdose or make your body heavily relient on it. I find Zinc helps in my cystic acne and later in quickly disappearing any red marks or scars. Chromium is good for your blood sugar level. Hope that helps.
Thanks so much Indy! The Chromium i bought is in 500mcg tabs, so i guess i'll have to break it in half. Also, I'll have to cut down on the zinc. Since you started taking chromium and zinc at different times, do you know which one caused the nausea?
I'm not willing to do the trial and error method to see which one caused the nausea...i was sick all day yesterday
