Got an ache or pain? Have a question about a prescription or over-the-counter drug? Looking for some FREE medical advice?
Is there any danger in taking too much vitamin C? I find that 1000 - 2000 mgs a day protects me against colds, and I take even more if someone in my office becomes ill. Lately, though, I hear that you should not exceed 250 mgs/day. Please advise. Thanks.
Serious toxicity is unusual with very high doses of vitamin C, as it is very quickly excreted in the urine. So 1-2g per day is not likely to be harmful, although there is no evidence that it is helpful, either, except in cases of severe vitaim C deficiency (scurvy).
Best wishes
