Mom has dementia and I have been giving her B vitamins, B-12, Iron, Magnesium, D-3, and Centrum Silver chewables.
I do not know how much good any of these vitamins do, but she has been complaining that there are just too many pills to take so I started leaving off everything except the D-3. When I stopped the Centrum, she seemed to calm down a lot during the day but I do not know if that was a fluke or what.
I would appreciate everyone's thoughts on vitamins in general and what is best to take or avoid. I know iron can cause constipation, but Mom has loose stools every single day so I thought the iron might actually help.
The doctor said her vitamins were "okay" but never said if they were needed or beneficial.
