Lowering Vitamin Supplement Intake?

I am taking Women's ONE Multi, the Hair Skin and Nail tablets, Chlorella, and Fish oil. I am taking the dosages stated on the bottle, my question is if I can and should decrease my dosages so that the pills will last longer (more months rather than the 1) or would it make it ineffective? I was told that many take the dosage stated on the bottle for 1 week to 1 month than decrease it to make it more of a maintenance thing. Would this still make it as effective if I started taking less of each per day but took it for longer?

Hello, chipmunkchom, and welcome to the Women's Health board!


You've asked an interesting question, and I'm afraid I don't have an answer for it. I'll do a little research and see what I can find, but in the meantime, a pharmacist would be a great resource to ask. They are knowledgeable about all sorts of vitamins and supplements as well as prescription medications, and might be able to offer you valuable insight.
