Am I going to die? What do?
Yeah it's caused children to die because they see it no different than candy. The lethal dose of vitamins is pretty high but two bottles of flintstone ones is enough to kill a 350lb man.
The Colbert Report had a guest on one night, I believe he was a cnacer specialist or maybe a nutritionist or something
Anyway he deeply advised against taking multi-vitamins because the fact is unless you are prescribed it by a doctor you simply dont need the extra vitamins and in fact are very likely just aiding the growth of cancer cells because cancer cells love to soak up the extra unneeded stuff. So in a way you might be helping yourself to get cancer.
IT depends on whether the vitamins are fat soluble or water soluble
If it has fat soluble vitamins like (I believe) A, D or K you've probably taken too much and might be fucked
Thread is probably a joke tho
Okay, OP, so you had two bottles with 60-70 vitamins each in them. Since one adult serving/dose/whatever is two vitamins that's basically, let's say, 70 servings of what the nutrition facts say. So that would be (more or less, depending on what kind you got)....
>140,000 IU of Vitamin A
The most of vitamin A that you're supposed to have safely is only 10,000 IU. But, I read about vitamin A toxicity, and it usually only occurs when you've been taking super powered vitamins with over 100,000 IU over a long period of time. Taking a huge dose like that just once probably means that you'll be okay.
>2100 mg of Vitamin C
The upper limit for vitamin C is 2000 mg. You're just a little above that, so it's probably nothing to worry about.
>42,000 IU of Vitamin D
Upper limit is 4000 IU. But like with vitamin A, to get toxicity you'd have to be taking a huge dose every day for months, or a dose over 300,000 IU. So you're cool.
>1260 IU of Vitamin E
Upper limit is 1500 IU, you're okay.
>70 mg of Vitamin B6
Upper limit is 100 mg, you're okay.
>14,000 mcg of folic acid
Upper limit is 1000 mcg. There was less information on the toxicity of this one, but it seemed like you might get some stomach problems, dizziness, nausea, and stuff like that. Then again, it might be the same with the other vitamins in that one fourteen-times-the-upper-limit dose wouldn't hurt you that much.
>210 mcg of B12
No upper limit, you can pretty much ingest a very large amount of this stuff and be fine and dandy.
>5250 mcg of biotin
No upper limit, you're okay.
>350 mg of pantothenic acid
No upper limit, you're okay.
>2100 mcg of iodine
Upper limit is 1100 mcg. Apparently taking more than 1400 mcg a day for a long time can lead to thyroid problems. But, one large dose once will probably mean you're fine.
>175 mg of zinc
Upper limit is 40 mg, but you apparently have to take at least 225 mg to start feeling any adverse effects.
TL;DR - You'll be fine. To really get hurt taking tons of vitamins, you'd have to be either taking doses like that for months, or have a ridiculously huge dose that would put your flintstone vitamin binge to shame. There is some chance you might feel a little sick, but nothing to go to the hospital over.
And no, I had nothing better to do with my life than research this.
