If your doctor wants you to take one they should be able to recommend one. My oncologist wants me taking calcium/VitD and they prescribe it for me so I don't have to go looking for one.

Thanks for your information. Actually i told my MO that i want to take multivitamin and he is ok with that. However after i read an article about preliminary finding that the breast cancer patients may not take CoQ10 as it may cause tumor recurrence. So i am trying to find multivitamin without CoQ10.

Regards
