I don't think I've gotten headaches, but B vitamins in particular make me jittery and nauseous. It's a similar reaction for me to drinking too much coffee.

Yes! No matter what time of day I take them. With or without food. I cannot consume them.

I get a sick stomach if I have not eaten. However, I do find that I get gassy if I take too many supplements at once.

Thanks Firefly - I didn't know that! I could look for something without iron because I don't specifically need it.

Vitamins do sometimes make me nauseous if I take them without food. Also I cannot take vitamins that are not a name brand like One-A-Day or Centrum. If I take an off brand I get diarrhea.
You might try another brand. It could be an ingredient in the vitamin that is used for a binder and not the nutrients themselves.

Linarex, the nausea could be caused by the iron. It's hard on the stomach.

Sometimes, but I mainly get nauseous from them. It helps me to take them at night before I go to bed or with food if I have to take them during the day.

sometimes, usually an upset stomach. it has to do with taking a vitamin with a B vitamin complex on an empty stomach. Try taking it with food to combat this negative reaction

Vitamins do NOT give me a headache, but I DO get a headache from eating chocolate too close to bedtime.

Multi vitamins generally make me feel tired and lethargic. It is odd because not all of them have done that, but most have. I do not take a multis now. Instead I just take a few individual vitamins that would be difficult to obtain from diet, like vitamin D3, and 2000mgs of EPA/DHA from fish oil.

I didnt get headaches, i got leg aches, my calves would ache and i wouldnt be working out at all, i talked to my doctor and he told me that i was taking too much calcium and when i switched to vitamins that didnt have all the extra calcium i was fine. if you are taking a multi vitamin, you are probably getting too much of a certian nutrient

OK, when I first started thinking that taking vitamins gave me headaches I thought I was crazy. But I have tested it several times. I again started taking vitamins a couple days ago (part of my resolution)and sure enough, I have a headache today. It's almost like a tension headache that starts in the shoulders. Anyone ever experience this? Any ideas as to what vitamin causes it and what to do about it? I found very little online. Some say it might be Niacin, some say dehydration. I've been pounding the water today and have felt some relief but it just seems so bizarre.
