I have ms, are there certain vitamins I should take as well as my multivitamin?

In brief: Not many, so far

Most focus on vit d and the ms pt with higher levels has fewer relapses and less MRI lesions.
Some pts have b-12 deficiencies associated with ms, so might get that checked. Early info about vitamin a but still preliminary and unsubstantiated.

I agree with Dr. Machanic. I would STRONGLY recommend supplementation with Vitamin D--with some patients taking up to 5,000 iu/day if closely followed by their physician. I also recommend B12, Omega-3's and Co-Q10 for my MS patients, although there is less data for benefit with these OTC supplements in MS.

In brief: Depends

You should ask your doctor to check a vit d level and get on vit d if needed to make your level normal.
Also check with your doctor to see if you are anemic or in need of b vitamins. Except for vitamin d, most people who eat a basically healthy diet don't need any additional vitamins/minerals.
