Throwing up after vitamin C?
I’m about to get surgery done in a few days and my doctor told me to take a 1000mg vitamin c pill every 12 hours. But when I do I get really nauseous and sometimes throw up, should I take 500mg instead and see if it makes it not as bad?

That would be a good question to ASK YOUR DOCTOR.

maybe there is something weird in the pill. Vitamin C is basic - not acidic; so, it should be no problem to take powder in a glass of water. You even can take 7 gram vitamin C daily...or even more. If I take vitamin C, I take a whole teaspoon full and it has no bad side effects - on the contrary, high doses of vitamin C prevents you to get a stroke.

Try taking it with food, not on an empty stomach and not with milk.

It wouldn't hurt to try as long as you get the total amount recommended by your doctor. If you're not taking it with a meal you might try that.

If you’re take 600 and see if that works
