If you are just taking a normal b complex supplement, I would not be concerned.  Your body excretes excess b vitamins.  I get B12 injections at high doses, that can affect you by disrupting sleep if it is too much.

I'd ditch the multivitamin. Can't give you a great reason but I have a hunch we're probably better off without those type of supplements.

Assuming 1 per day, that's $13/mo. Since it's providing you with hormones, you might try Swanson's vitamins and check prices for DHEA. Not sure if it will work the same for you but who knows?

As long as they are miscible (fancy chemist word for mixable), it should work as you describe. Any oil will do it too. Don't bother with MCT oil, try olive oil.
