I take B - complex vitamin with my daily men's vitamin.  I take it to boost my energy.    Can to much B, hurt?

Yes.: Even though B vitamins are water soluble and not stored in our fat like the fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K), too much of certain Bs, like B6 and B3 (niacin,) can get you in trouble.

If you drink alcohol to excess & forgo proper balanced nutrition, you can run low on b vitamins for which extra might be useful but this is pretty rare. ...Read more
