Regarding vitamins and fiber suppliments..
« on: October 19, 2006, 08:48:26 PM »
Can anyone please tell me if its OK to take my vitamins at the same time as I drink a powdered fiber supplement mix?  I'd hate to think I am taking vitamins in vain. It is just the most convenient for me to do so in the morning. The product label states that fiber supplements can affect how other drugs work. I wonder if it refers to absorption rate or efficiency impediment. But specifically regarding vitamins, as I take my HAART in the evenings. Any suggestions?
Thanks ahead for any input!

hi pochi,

if your vitamins are in tablet form, then yes, the fibre drink may lower absorption - prob best to take them about 2hours before, or later on in the day.
