In brief: Yes

In g6pd deficiency, coq10 can cause hemolysis.
There probably are more that either have not been identified or not reported.

In brief: Herbs have been

Linked to cases of hemolysis.
Green teas and other compounds have produced a variety of blood count issues -- usually destructive (like hemolysis) or underproduction. Vitamins not so much.
