I have a terrible time swallowing large pills and I even have trouble with the smell of vitamins.  But I have found a pretty good solution.  For my multivitamin, I take Prenatal Vitamins (can’t remember which brand).  I think they’re generally smaller than most multivitamins.  For calcium, I take Walgreen’s brand of Calcium Petites.  I can’t remember exactly, but I know you have to take more than one to get the recommended dosage.  I usually take four a day — kind of a hassle, but better than trying to swallow a huge horse pill!

Target carries a brand of gummy multi vitamins and calcium supplements. They are actually really good. I have a hard time with most because they upset my stomach but these haven’t. Also there is a brand of chewable Calcium supplements. I can’t remember the name but it is in a purple box and is with all the other vitamins in the store.

I take One-a-day weight smart… not small but DEFINITELY not as big as some I’ve seen 😀

The purple box ones that jennred782 mentioned are called Viactiv – they’re pretty tasty and come in both a multi-vitamin or calcium.

If those don’t work, try Flintstones (chewables!) Complete. They are comparable to other women’s vitamins (check the back of the boxes and compare the information), but so easy to take. I hate taking pills, and I would always put them in my pocket to take later. Of course, I’d never take them, so then I’d end up throwing them out and wasting money.

Now, with the Flintstones, I just chew them on the go! They don’t taste bad, and are a great multi vitamin. 

 Just make sure you get the COMPLETE ones- they have a few different kinds that have limited vitamins in them. I also take an added calcium pill. I got the petites of Caltrate, but realized then I’d have to take 2 to get the same amount of calcium.
