Side Effects Return to top
Vitamin C is water soluble and is regularly excreted by the body. Therefore, toxicity is very rare. Amounts greater than 2,000 mg/day, however, are not recommended because such high doses can lead to stomach upset and diarrhea.[exe]
from the national health libary online resources.
From chief medical editor Professor John. A. Henry MB FRDP - , The British Medical Association Concise Guide to Medicines & Drugs (2005) Dorling Kindersly, London, uk. (page 91)
"adverse reactions to large doses of vitamin C and pyridoxine (vitamin B6) have been reported."

~~ Edited out because I like ATS, and try to deny ignorance and anger~~. The above are just three very quick things for you to think over before you flame me about what i do and do not know - you never know, one day you too might follow where I walk - till then, be nice.
And for your information, vit C over use is not uncommon amongst multi vitamin takers who use it on top of a good diet during heavy exercise over a long period..... or young girls who take loads of suppliments instead of eating to stay thin.....
