    Hi Gary,
    I expect a good, balanced vitamin pill wouldn’t do you any harm, and just might do you some good. Ask your PCP. I’m on Centrum Silver (I’m an old guy now) plus some Vitamin ‘C’ and ‘E’ – but they were my choice, not medically ordered.

    I can’t remember the last time I had a cold.
