Could multivitamins be the reason im not sleeping?


I recently started taking multi vitamins. I only take 1 a day though instead of the 3 that they say to. Specifically this one:

I normally get to sleep in around 30 minutes. However i have noticed for the past 4 days i have taken this i have been restless at night and taking 2+ hours to sleep.

Could it be the cause? Or should i be taking all 3 ?

Thank you

Multivitamins taking at 100% the Daily Value shouldn't have an effect on sleep. But this item is not just a multivitamin it also has other ingredients like green tea extract, quercetin and piperine that may affect your sleep. I would call the company to see if sleep is a side effect. Unfortunately, supplement companies are not held the same standard as drugs so they may not have the studies to show.
