Are you taking the vitmains on a full stomach? I've gotten seriously ill from taking vitmains with no food. Also, hydration is key in proper absorbtion, that could have something to do with it.To rule out allergies or something more serious, I think it would be wise to take your vitmains to your doctor and talk it over with him/her.
