New formula is terrible!

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! Show details

Do not buy!!!

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.

Good thing to stay away from

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!! Show details

Awful

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 Show details

Made me feel sick

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 Show details

Cheap.. but nasty

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. Show details

Fine!

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

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

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

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

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.
