Hi.  The effectiveness or absorption of anti-tuberculosis medications will not be in any way affected by the intake of multivitamin supplements.  In fact, patients who are being given isoniazid (INH) are encouraged to concurrently take Vitamin B complex supplements to counteract the neuropathy (numbness and tingling on the tips of hands and feet) associated with INH.
