In brief: Yes
In addition to toxic levels of fat soluble vitamins, multivitamins also have high levels of ions and heavy metals that are not needed unless you have a known deficiency.
I recommend that the average patient, with no know deficiency and anything close to a normal diet, should never take a multivitamin as an adult.
