Should be ok: Taken supplements can be taken with antibiotics. Be cautious with Vit E as it can occasionally lead to a thinning of the blood. Always inform your MD what supplements you are taking before starting any medications. A balanced diet often makes supplements unnecessary. http://www.drugs.com/drug-interactions/multivitamin,vitamins.html
