Yes,  I take a multiple and add a few more.  Much of our soils are so low the plants can't get what they need to be able to give vitamins to you.

B12 is good for the nervous system, fibromyalgia patients need a lot of it.  I was extremely low before adding it.   I was also in the cellar low with D3, I take 7000 units a day to keep it in the middle range.   Living in the north east the sun does not have the correct angle to give us what we need.  Low D3 can cause many problems so get the lab work done and take according to Dr. Recommendation.

  Make sure you take vitamins with food. Makes a big difference.

I take a multivitamin as I believe as I get older I don't absorb the vitamins from foods as well.

I have everyday vitamins since I was a small boy many years ago.  To this day I take a multi-vitamin, Vitamin C and a calcium pill.
