    I have been having a lot of symptoms of deficiencies in the past few months so I bought a tub of multivitamin tablets yesterday.

    How long will it be until I notice a difference?

    You won't notice any difference because they don't work, there are plenty of respected articles on the internet that state taking vitamins produces 'expensive urine'. Your body doesn't absorb these vitamins as it would from food and they're expelled.

    What symptoms of deficiencies do you think you're noticing? How would you describe your diet?

    I saw a tv show on BBC that said your body doesn’t actually take them in, they’re just passed through your body. In fact I’m sure they said taking some tablets could actually reduce the amount in your body… you’ll probably find it online where if you give it a search

    If you're noticing a lot of symptoms then you likely have a larger deficiency than multivitamins would help with. The levels in multivitamins aren't very high and there's no guarantee they include the right one for your deficiency.
    I suggest you go see your GP to have some bloods done and work out what deficiency you have and by how much.

    There are also other conditions with the same symptoms as a vitamin deficiency which vitamins obviously wouldn't help with. Going and getting tests done also means you can check that a vitamin deficiency is the actual issue.

    Hope that helps
