    I'm a teenager and I decided to buy some multivitamins, i found one in the shops and I saw it was multi vitamins so I bought it, however when I got home I realised it says mature multivitamins age 50+ , and on the back it says multivitamins specifically formulated for the elderly. These were quite expensive and I already opened them so can't return them. Is it safe for me to use these or should I buy normal ones?

    Absolutely fine to take them - dividing multivitamins into who should take them (e.g. men, women, children, pregnant women etc) is about 99% marketing ploy, 1% actual benefit.

    Should be fine, but if you find yourself craving werther's originals, or thinking that a bath with a door in it is a good idea, lay off them for a bit.
