You can safely take more than one B-complex vitamin per day. I normally take one B-100 time-release tablet in the morning. I will sometimes take another one in the evening before I go to sleep. When I do, I often wake up feeling more refreshed and energized. So, I don't feel that taking one in the morning and another at night is such a bad idea. Remember, all B vitamins are water-soluble, so whatever you have taken in the morning has long been excreted from your body by evening.

It depends on the dosage. Two of a 50-mg complex is ok, but it wouldn't necessarily be a good idea to take two of a 200-mg complex. Also, there are certain B-vitamins like B6 that may keep you from sleeping soundly, so beware taking them too close to bedtime. If you are looking for extra energy during the day, try using a timed release formula, or you could even take an extra 1000 mcg of B12.
