Are the Barocca tablets suitable for people with type 2 diabetes . I’ve been told the effervescent tablets are not , as they are packed with sugar and aspartame which outweigh the benefits?
My berocca has gone soft even though it is well within use by date. It's not dissolving, can I dissolve it in warm water?

I would suggest taking 1 tablet just before you start playing. If you're playing again later that day, you could take another one, or maybe consider some other kind of pre-workout drink. like coffee!
Btw, if you do want to have a coffee AND a Berocca, try to separate them by an hour or 2, as the coffee tends to flush out the B vitamins.
In terms of effective duration etc, I think you'll just have to experiment and see how you feel.
I know Berocca is used in cold water, but can it be used as a hot drink? Being made with Aspartame, makes it suitable for diabetics, unlike Lemsip which has a higher sugar level.
I have never used anything but tap water so unless says hot water I would not recommend it any other way. I hope this helps.
I usually use hot water during the winter. I find it very comforting. It doesn't take way all the goodness you feel when taking it with cold water.
I spoke to my pharmacist about it as I also like it as a hot drink. His answer was that heat will deteriorate the vitamins a bit faster, but if you drink it within the hour then you will be fine. Also that the standard Berocca in cold water deteriorates the vitamin over time also. Either hot or cold, you should drink them within the hour.
Can my 10 year old daughter have it?
It is ok because it doesnt contain caffeine but consuming too much at a young age is a problem. In the USA berocca contains caffeine!
I would not give a product containing artificial sweetners to a child. They are even more damaging than sugar. They can spike the blood sugar levels, which is what can give that initial energy boost, but drop rapidly after leaving you craving more sugar. They can cause in balances in other hormones as they are stored in the liver. Just come across your post so probably a bit late now, but it might help someone else.
Is it better to take it in the morning or at night. Does it affect sleep?
My partner has been taking berocca for many years now every morning I am wondering if he should have a break every now and then, what are as he is not jumping out of his skin with B B B bursts of energy?
Hi i put my husband on IntelliVit for men made by Blooms. Available at your local pharmacy for around $22 which lasts 2 months. Its a split release tablet. One layer is an instant release of multivitamins and the second layer is a slow release. Berrocca has plenty of great ingredients but the IntellVit was my choice for my hubby since he was a bit the same, but this doesnt seem to make him jump out of skin either i think the vitamins, a balanced diet and daily excersize will solve that problem. My husband seems to be more energetic when he starts goin to the gym i just put him on vitamins to give his body suplements that he may be missing out on.
