For Vitamin/Mineral Supplementation and Deficiency "I need to WARN all people out there that this multivitamin can develop depression. I have never diagnosed depression before and 2 days after taking this I developed a terrible "sad/down" mood which I never felt before. I called PFIZER to explain this to them and they told me Centrum has no side effects at all...really?. I did my research and found out about 4K cases were reported on side effects, being one of them major depression. I took it ONLY for 10 days and it was the worst 10 days of my life. I had been thru some bad stages in my life yet never been depressed. The day after I took Centrum I had this horrible feelings of discouragement. I stopped the medication today and hope to go back to normal very soon"

For Vitamin/Mineral Supplementation and Deficiency "I have been taking Centrum Silver for years. No problems. I have noticed you have up the percentages on some ingredients to 100% or more on some things. I am now having upset stomach and I think it may be related to the vitamin. I take with food. I also take extra C,D,B12, Maganisum. I am at a loss which it might be. I wish you had left it alone. I may have to change."

For Vitamin/Mineral Supplementation and Deficiency "Every time I take Centrum Silver, I get a severe frontal headache and nausea. I never connected these symptoms to a vitamin, but noticed that I forgot to take it for a couple days and I was symptom free. I am interested in the ingredients that might be causing the flare up."

For Vitamin/Mineral Supplementation and Deficiency "Severe diarrhea within an 3 hour of taking this multivitamin luckily I was at home. It came on suddenly, no cramping, just all of sudden I lost my bowels. Very thin and had no control. I looked it up and this happened to others too."

Skin Issues · Taken for 1 to 6 months · December 17, 2022

For Vitamin/Mineral Supplementation and Deficiency "Within 3 months of starting Centrum Silver, my skin around my neck in front and towards my shoulders became very red and irritated. I tried a prescription gel on them but that didn't help. Tried not taking the vitamin and within 2 months the irritation went away along with most of the red coloring. I am a 64 year old male in good health and have never had any of these issues before. I may try starting to take these vitamins again to see if the irritation returns."

For Vitamin/Mineral Supplementation and Deficiency "Recent blood test during physical revealed high Iron levels in my blood test. My research tells me that the vast majority of post menopausal women don't need extra iron . This Vitamin supplement in Dallas, TX, United States (DFW-Dallas-Fort Worth Intl.)marketed to women over 50 . My Dr advised me to stop taking any vitamin supplement that contains Iron. I plan to switch back to One a Day /50 . Which has no iron in it ."

For Vitamin/Mineral Supplementation and Deficiency "I was taking 25mg JANUVIA(for blood sugar) is mall amount but I verified on the second day that my sugar was high 195 and no food. I think Centrum Silver interacts with the Januvia. Very careful if you are taking pills for sugar or blood pressure."
