Hey Igor. Well, multivitamins can be taken with herbs. As advised above by Herbpathy, only Stimulant herbs are to be avoided along with Rhodiola. Just check this with your doctor about the supplement you are taking. Why are you taking Rhodiola? There is a number of experts in this forum. Someone might help you in a better way.
