Hi!
While it is common notion that taking multivitamins does not harm, actually no vitamins should be taken unless needed. Vitamins usually will not help you gain or lose weight. They can help you fight infection and anemia and help you keep healthy.
As I have probably discussed earlier, if you are losing weight you need to find out the cause. Usually depot shots cause weight gain. So, if you are losing weight on this, you must inform your gynecologist. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
