I find that I usually prefer One-A-Day multi-vitamins (MV). If you eat a well balanced diet, then there shouldn't be much more you need. If you, for example, don't eat/drink any dairy products, you may want to add in some calcium.
Also, I started taking my multi-vitamin at night (right before I go to bed), I think it works better for me. I don't "taste" it during lunch, I don't get quesy and I actually remember to take it.
Other than the MV here are a few others that "they" say a lot of people don't get enough of, base it on your own needs of course:
Vitamin D (if you get out in the sun at least 20 minutes EVERY day, then the MV should suffice. If not, then you may want to add some more?)
Omega-3's (add if you don't eat fish 2-3x's a week?)
Folic Acid (if not in MV?)
Anyway, I hope all that helps (and was what you were looking for). I also have friends that swear SAM-e helps them with thier moods. You may have to try a few different brands though, cause they aren't all made the same. Once you find a brand you like-stick with it.
I hate taking a million vitamins so I don't take that many. I could probably stand to take in a few of the above. But what I take everyday is a MV and Calcium/Magnesium/Zinc (all in one). I plan on adding in some Glucosomine/Chondrotin again cause my joints are hurting. I know how frustrating it can be trying to figure it all out. I say just decide what it is you feel you really need everyday, which you think would benefit you the most and just take those. What do you feel you are lacking? Some Vits do double duty and there are many that "help" the same issues. For example: If you have dull hair and dry nails, I might add either Omega-3's/flaxseed oil or vitamin E. If you are feeling run down, you might look to see if you're getting enough Vit D. Keep in mind that some vitamin works great for some people and not for others. I can't take St Johns Wort, it makes me sick. And if I took all the vitamins that I thought would help me, I would be taking a large handful everyday...lol So, I just stick with the ones that I think do me the most good.
Well, now that I have written more than you probably wanted to read (LOL), I will just say...Good Luck!
