Vitamins make me sick
Not sure if anyone knows about melaleuca or not, but I was taking the vitamins for about 1.5yrs and then all of a sudden they started to make me sick. I stopped taking them and now that I'm pregnant I switched to the prenatal version and they make me sick also. I just feel like there is WAY to much stuff in the vitamins % wise.
I talked with the lady that enrolled me and she said they are designed so that you can never get to much (every time I take them I pee bright yellow for awhile) which means that I'm flushing $ down the toilet. This is what is in it..

thats it. I take it with a full stomach and I'm sooooo queasy and get hot flashes. They did change something in the formula when I started getting sick when I take them. I called in and that is when I canceled my membership because I was only a member for the vitamins. I noticed something changed because the vitamin was a different color. The lady said it wasn't a huge change it it shouldn't have affected me, but it sure did. I can't even think about taking them now without gagging. which is sad because they are really good vitamins. But does anyone think that they have a little TO much of some things?
I went to riteaid and got a prenatal gummy vitamin and I haven't gotten sick with them. I def. need to get one that has more iron and stuff though...so what do you ladies think??
I'm eating my breakfast now, and then I'm going to try them yet again and see what happens...
Thank my Motorola Electrify for any random words.
