Smile Could vitamins irritate the colon?

I have been having horrible pain on days when I take my multi vitamin. I'm currently taking a generic form of Centrum. Had a diagnosis of "spastic colon" over 20 years ago but it hasn't bothered me in years and years.

I have had problems with adhesions in the past but it wasn't like this.

Could it be my vitamins? If so, is there a gentle multi-vitamin I could take that won't irritate?

I'm post-menopausal and need my vitamins!!

Re: Could vitamins irritate the colon?

I take a chewable multivitamin (Centrum) daily. When I was having bowel problems, my sister who had bariatric surgery told me that they are less irritating. Sure enough, I like the chewables better. The pills used to "sit funny" in my tummy for about an hour. There are also chewable calcium tablets. Something to consider.
