I have taken Calcium Citrate - Plus Vitamin D for years, Karla.  It is wise to take the two combined as the vitamin D helps the body make use of the Calcium more efficiently.  I also take a Vitamin B Complex 50 and a Vitamim E daily.  Any Multi-vitamin that I have ever tried makes my tummy rebel - so I just use the ones I feel I really need!

Remember, there are NO dumb questions regarding menopause!

HI....I take supplements, but I don't take what everyone else is taking.  I did some research to find out what I needed.  If you are interested in that try this site:
