Hey doctor, I want to know something. Is there any side effects on health while taking vitamin c -1000 mg capsules /tablets everyday. I read somewhere that taking vitamin c will lead to kidney stones.

VIT C DEFFICIENCIES WE DO GIVE 500 MG TWICE DAILY. For months. We have to out balance the benefits and side effects. All who consume 1000 mg may not get uri nary stones. Take 2 to 3 liters of water daily .And do monitor for side effects. Every drug and eatables have side effects but v do prescribe and monitor.
No bad effect.
