Side Effects of StressTabs With Zinc

You may want to take multivitamins such as StressTabs with Zinc if you feel you do not get enough of the many vitamins, minerals and nutrients from the food you eat. Multivitamins provide nutrition you normally would get in foods such as fruits and vegetables. The vitamins and minerals help a person achieve the goal of health if she is unable to consume enough nutritious foods in her diet. Although a pill cannot replace proper nutrition, you can get some of your daily nutritional requirements filled by taking a multivitamin supplement. Check with your physician, especially if you take prescribed medications, before embarking upon a course of multivitamins such as StressTabs with Zinc.


Take StressTabs with Zinc with food to help avoid stomach upset. One of the most common side effects associated with starting a new medication or supplement is diarrhea. Your body tries to adjust itself to having the new substance within its systems. This can cause you to develop a temporary and non-serious imbalance in your bowels. In this case, you may have an over abundance of fluid in your intestines during the digestion of your food. This can cause abdominal cramps and produce loose stools or diarrhea. Classified as a non-serious side effect, diarrhea typically will exist only short-term and should feel mild. If it lingers or feels severe, consult your physician and ask her advice or for her help with the condition. In most cases, the use of over-the-counter anti-diarrheal medications can help. Your doctor also may prescribe other medications to help with the side effect.


You may instead experience the opposite problem with your bowels when you first take StressTabs with Zinc. Your body may take out too much fluid from the digesting solid matter, causing your stools to become drier and harder than usual. This can cause constipation, also often accompanied by cramps. Minerals such as calcium contained within this supplement can slow the movement of the bowels, causing decreased ability of your intestines to move stools out of your body. In most people, constipation, too, will pass.

Appetite Problems

Taking a new multivitamin such as StressTabs with Zinc can induce a feeling of nausea. This may induce vomiting and it may accompany heartburn. You also may suffer a loss of your appetite when you begin a regimen of multivitamin use. Your body may need time to adjust to taking the new supplement. If the symptoms continues, you should talk with your doctor for his advise.

Teeth Stains

Your teeth may become stained when you use a multivitamin such as StressTabs with Zinc. This is not considered a serious problem, but can cause you some concern. You can try toothpastes that help remove stains from teeth. Your doctor also may help you with this common side effect.
