Zinc/stomach ache????

Has anyone gotten a stomach ache from zinc? Im taking 2 muli vitamis a day with an xtra zinc pill. Doc's order's due to some not healing from surgery! Im afraid to take them again.....i felt awfully sick afterwards.

Many people report having nausea from taking too much zinc. Maybe you could talk to your doc about taking it or using it topically. Or perhaps, start out with a smaller amount.

Re: Zinc/stomach ache????

Hi,

What is in your multi's? Is there a high dosage of iron? as well as zinc?

What's the dosage you're taking of zinc?

Do you take both multi's at the same time? Do you take all the zinc at the same time? Do you take them with meals?

whew...more questions.

I take zinc for colds to avoid them rather. I have been very ill when I take them on an empty stomach. Always eat a decent meal befor taking them. and feel better
