In brief: What For?

For what purpose are you doing so? It may not be wise to take them once a day, let alone multiple times.
If you have a known deficiency in a vitamin, try to address the deficiency from whole foods and for vitamin d, from the sun. See this website. http://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/list-all/ otherwise, only take what you need. More is not better.

In brief: No.

There is such a thing as hypervitaminosis (e.
g. Vitamin a is teratogenic in excess for reproductive age women) and you are advised to not take multiple daily vitamin supplements. In addition, vitamin supplements have few proven benefits and cost a lot of money. Spend that money on a healthier diet instead.
