    Side effects of iron and vitamin supplements

    When I take iron and vitamin supplements, I have unusual side effects. When I take iron, I get severe nosebleeds, bruises, and a stomachache. When I take vitamins, I notice I get bruises and a stomachache. An old-fashioned no nonsense doctor once told me that if vitamins make me sick, then don't take them. My current docs want me to take iron. Sometimes they say that it could be the iron that causes the nosebleeds, especially if I am taking too high a dose, but sometimes they don't believe vitamins or iron could have side effects, because they are contained in our food and always present in our bodies. I can remember a time when taking supplements where discouraged by the medical profession, but many people protested. I would like to know if anyone else has ever experienced nosebleeds and bruising when taking iron supplements, or bruises when taking vitamin supplements.
