In brief: Yes
Multi vitamins generally provide vitamins and minerals way in excess of specific needs.
They are based on average intact needs and do provide some measure of comfort to the user. If you identify specific needs only or have some metabolic issues requiring a specific supplement only, then vitamins for that need only can be taken. Your family doctor will help determine this.
