Ok to take B complex & Multi-vit???

Hi I am a senior citizen (67). I have digestive problems at this stage of life that make it a little more difficult to digest certain fruits & vegetable. Therefore, I don't take many that are normally good for you in like I used to.

I take a multi-vit. for seniors and am wondering is it safe to take a Good B-complex vitamin along with that.

I notice that the B-complex has some of the same things in it that the multi has but not all of them. I'd like to take the B-complex to make sure I am getting everything but am concerned about taking in too much of the other vitamins in it.

I had actually mixed the two type supplements for many years with no problem that I am aware of, then somehow have gotten away from the B-complex. Now I want to resume it and would just like to know if their is anyone here that truly knows if it is ok to mix the two.

Any response would be greatly appreciated.

Yes it is.

This is because B vitamins are water soluble so if you take too much you will pee them out.

However if this happens your urine is likely to be neon yellow as too much B2 turns urine this colour.

If it does happen stop taking the B complex as clearly you have enough B vitamins in your system.
