Like if you take 2 multivitamins (I do this sometimes to make up for not eating) could you overdose on vitamins. I've heard if you take too much vit C its really bad for you

You can overdose on fat soluble vitamins. Those are the vitamins that your body stores. The only real bad side effect of too much Vitamin C is having diarrhea, it won't kill you or anything, and it actually does take a lot of Vitamin C for diarrhea to happen. Vitamins A, D, E, and K are fat soluble vitamins.

B vitamins are water soluble, meaning that if you have more than your body can use, you'll just pee it out, which is why B vitamins can make your pee neon, lol.
