New formula is terrible!

published

I purchased this product as I took Swisse prior to/throughout my first pregnancy and assumed they had just changed the packaging. Wrong! They used to be a single-tablet formulation and have a pleasant sweet flavour/odour. The new formula sees tablets contain half the vitamins they used to, meaning you have to take 2 a day, and tastes very fishy (which isn't ideal when you are already nauseated in early pregnancy). They make me gag every time I take them. My morning sickness has been much much worse this pregnancy and I wouldn't be surprised if this new formulation had something to do with it. I'm tossing what's left and switching to Blackmores Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Gold!

Purchased in February 2020 at Chemist Warehouse Online Store.

Do not buy!!!

published

I use to take these which is 1 capsule everyday, then they changed the formula so you had to take 2 a day with the same amount of capsules in a pottle and for the same price! I don’t know how Swisse can get away with being so greedy.
I wrote to them asking why and they didn’t respond.
Shame on you Swisse for ripping off your customers. I will not be buying from Swisse again.

Does not work for me

published

You can feel it after having it smelly, These smell and taste terrible I hate it I would hate to take it I try mornings after food evening and before sleep it’s not working for me.

Purchased in July 2019 at Coles.

Good thing to stay away from

published

Have been taking these for some months. Since about 6 weeks pregnant I have felt absolutely terrible, exhausted beyond belief. Last thing I would have thought of my multivite... which is meant to help pregnancy symptoms. But, strangely enough every day I don't have these or forget to have them, I feel absolutely fine & symptom free. Also, have started out feeling really well in the day & had them later than usual only to feel awful for the remainder of the day... it has happened so many times now I know it's not a coincidence.. it is these tablets!!

Purchased at Bisaro's Pharmacy for A$45.99.

Awful

published

These smell and taste terrible- they made me feel so sick and burping up fish and seaweed taste for hours afterward. These were on sale but not worth the cost savings

Purchased in August 2019 at Chemist Warehouse for A$64.99.

Why change the formula?

published

I ran out of the old formula last week and bought the new re-packaged lighter pink container pregnancy multivitamins. I was sceptical at first because you now need to take 2 capsules instead of 1, and its more expensive per capsule too. I cannot stomach the taste of these tablets, they have a very strong fish taste and smell. I nearly threw up taking these for the first time (and I'm not even pregnant - just trying to be). I guess Swisse decided to be greedy and re-package and re-formulate for more money. I will be throwing out these and looking for an alternative. I won't be purchasing Swisse for any type of vitamins again.

Purchased in June 2019 at Chemist Warehouse Physical Store for A$65.00.

Made me feel sick

published

Had to throw out. Back on Blackmores. Made me feel really unwell for some reason. And started to smell very fishy about a fortnight after I opened the container. Wouldn’t recommend

Cheap.. but nasty

published

I purchased as a cheaper alternative to elevit. The casuals are larger, and you need to swallow two. I found them hard to swallow, and harder to keep down. The tablets kept repeating on me and leaving an awful aftertaste.

Purchased in January 2019 for A$20.00.

Fine!

published

I’ve been using these as a prenatal and they have been fine for me! I take them with lunch & the only negative I can think of is sometimes they give me an after taste when I burp. Have not given me nausea once, I think it’s important to take with or straight after a meal.

Vomit 20 minutes later

published

Switched from elevit to swisse pregnancy ultivite. Took it after breakfast so with food. Nil vomits for the past 13 weeks, morning sickness gone. But with this I burped terrible B vitamin slurp and projectile vomited on my way to the toilet. Feral. Only tried once and i'm not willing to try again.

Good value, good content

published

For those complaining of reflux or nausea, Take them with food, problem solved!
These have good levels of all the relevant vitamins, and they’re not exhorbitantly priced like some.
I’ve not had any issues with these, and recommend them.
Easy to swallow, even though they’re not tiny.
I got two packs from chemist warehouse when they were on sale, so they’re good value in that sense.

Reasonably priced and repurchased many times

published

I like this multivitamin even though it may not be for everyone.
its well priced and made by a reputable brand that I trust. I have no after effects once taken and am happy to keep taking this while breast feeding
tablets are quite large but that doesn't bother me at all.

Made me horribly sick and not even pregnant yet.

published

Bought these as a pre natal vitamin and have been taking them for a while. They cause me to vomit, have an awful taste and have left me with tummy pains, dizziness, reflux with disgusting taste and nausea that lasts the whole day, despite taking them with food. Will never buy them again and stopped taking when I realised. Terrible product. 100% not pregnant either, so all effects from tablet.

Won't use again

published

Very discusting aftertaste, I would burp and taste the tablets very pungent taste/smell. On many occasions if i only had my breakfast I would vomit up the tablet. If I took the tablet with a large meal, I wouldn't vomit, just feel queasy for 15 minutes. The health benefits may be there, but honestly the size of the tablet, after taste and spew factor is just not worth it.

Bad taste is the only problem

published

Haven't had an issue with these tablets other than the horrible after-taste that I only get of I don't eat before hand. I have nearly finished the whole bottle and haven't had any burst tablets like other people seem to be experiencing. They are also a cheaper alternative to elevit and seem to be working just fine.

Easier to swallow than Elevit, even though they are bigger!

published

I started taking Elevit a few months ago, and gagged every time I tried to swallow the tablet, it seems to get stuck! I got so sick of the gagging that I just stopped taking them. I tried the Swisse version, which is a larger tablet, but smoother. I take mine with a small glass of milk in the morning, and I don't feel a thing as it goes down! There is a slight "irony" after-taste I experience which lasts for about 2 hours after taking it. Nothing too gross though. I haven't had any other tummy or bowel upsets from this vit. Seems to be doing the job!
