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.

Is it possible to overdose on thiamine supplements, or does it have any other negative effects like folate? I take a 100mg tablet every day, I try to get what i can from food. I also take folate, but in the metafolin form.
