    Actually, I don't mind having to take 4 of these! Prior to these when I was taking additional calcium pills (4 a day), I was also taking 2 multi-vitamin pills, for a total of 6 pills daily. Unfortunately, I would also not always take the extra calcium pills (bad!). Yucky taste and lazy me. However with these, I know that in order to get my full vitamin RDA I have to take all of these pills, and therefore, always get my full calcium supplementation. Anyway, this dosing really works for me. And I do save a little, at least in my case.

    Since I take Prilosec, my pharmacist suggested that I switch from ferrous sulfate (the commonest iron supplement) to ferrous gluconate for better absorption. That's why I take the GNC women's multivitamin that has no iron. (I get my iodine from iodized table salt and other nutritional components.) However, this particular version of Ultra Mega, "Bone Density," contains more calcium, and therefore they want you to take FOUR tablets a day rather than two. I realize this is to mete out the calcium for better absorption, but it's inconvenient. Can't the pharma folk find a way of time-releasing calcium so we don't have to pop pills all day?

      This product has been a part of my osteoporosis prevention regime for aobut six years. So far seems to be very effecitve. I like that fact that it replaces a lot of other supplements I was taking with this one easy-to-swallow pill. And it contains it's own unique ingredients also. Very convenient.

        A little large and you take 4 pills a day.
        They taste ok, not too difficult to swallow,
        Good quality supplement - check doses on panel.
        Good for continual maintenance.

          I have been following an osteoporosis prevention regime for years. When GNC came out with this product I was able to consolidate a lot of pills into this one, because it's a multivitamin plus calcium, magnesium and other metals and contains their special ingredient MBP. Very convenient to take. Still take another calcium phosphate supplement too.

            I had been buying multi-vits and seperate calcium, vit D and magnesium. Since GNC have come out with this bone density version of the mega women it's saved taking so many more pills and cut the cost.
            Very pleased.

              The directions recommend 4 tablets per day, but I only take 2 because I feel that my diet is exceptionally healthy. I was diagnosed with Osteoperosis last year. I started taking these tablets shortly thereafter, and after a year of taking these tablets, I had another bone density, and my Osteoperosis improved to Ostopenia. In fact, my bone density was better in 2012 than it was in 2009 and 2011! I really feel that going the natural vitamin route was the best choice for me!! I really feel with these tablets, diet and excercise, YOU CAN TOO improve your bone density! I am very happy with the results and will continue to use! Keep Strong Ladies!!

                I don't need iron or more iodine, so this multivitamin is perfect.
                I'm already taking meds that constipate so iron would only make things worse and don't need iodine as I'm on thyroxine.
                GNC is one of very few to make a womens multivitamin withou adding iron & iodine.

                  Fairly easy to swallow, I take all of the daily dose with breakfast, as I'm on other medications through the day and I find this avoids nausea later in the day.
                  This GNC multivitamin doesn't have iron or iodine which is great, as most mtv for women do.
