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.
