Answer

Be wary of large or chronic ingestions of all vitamins in children, especially the fat-soluble vitamins A and D.

Nonspecific symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and rash, are common with any acute or chronic vitamin overdose. Vitamin-related symptoms may be secondary to those associated with additives (eg, mannitol), colorings, or binders; these symptoms usually are not severe.
