Is it ok to mix these vitamins?

As a new years resolution I am trying to take my vitamins. However, I wonder if I am mixing too many. I'm a female in my late twenties with relatively good health. Here is what I am taking please let me know if I should be concerned at all. Multivitamin Women's 1 a day (1 a day), Vitamin E 400IU (1 a day), Vitamin D 400IU (1 a day), Flaxseed Oil and Evening Primrose both 1000mg for hair/scalp (3x's a day), and Milk Thistle 75 mg for liver (2x's a day).

If I should be at all concerned let me know - is it too many? do I need both flaxseed oil and evening primrose? etc.

Thanks!

Re: Is it ok to mix these vitamins?

You don't need to take evening primrose oil and flax oil at the same time. If you have some sort of skin condition then take the evening primrose oil, otherwise I would stick with the flax oil since its generally cheaper. I don't know about the vitamin E. I mean if you're taking it for good skin than you should choose between that and the flax oil or the evening primrose oil. Those other pills sound ok to take as long as you don't take then all at the same time.

Re: Is it ok to mix these vitamins?

Thank you for the advice. For the other pills you suggest I take them at different times of the day - instead of all at once? I just wanted to clarify.

Yeah I meant take them at different times during the day.
