Vitamins to take while BFing

Is anyone taking vitamins other than prenatals?  I took Alive vitamins before pregnancy and loved them and especially the energy they gave me.  I have been so tired lately and finding myself sleeping a lot!  I just started my period for the first time since having the baby (she's nearly 2 months) and that might have a lot to do w/ being so sleepy.

I was wondering if anyone else takes Alive while BFing?  Everything in it is natural but I don't want to hurt my supply either and I know some herbs, etc can do that.

As long as there is no sage or mint extract, this is fine to take.
