I can hardly tolerate any and even some herbal supplements I have trouble with. I am going to be in trouble as I get older because I am afraid I won't be able to take meds that I may need. I also am sensitive to gluten and dairy as well as artificial sweeteners. Can't touch any of those things or they start up a heart arrithymia.
