HI its pritty hard to O/D on vitamins but there are some that you can take to much of
for the most part as long as your only taking one of anything you should be cool on the calcium/magnesium/zinc I took a 3 in one and read some where to take 4 with breakfast and 4 with dinner to help with the withdrawals ...doing a slow taper off methadone I had my share of withdrawals and I found it helped out considerably so on that one its safe to take more then one and you actually need more then one to get the benefits from it when you get some time go thew the health pages on the right hand side of the screen there is a lot of good info there...good luck and God bless...your friend Mark
