B-Complex High Potency
B-complex helps break down the fats & proteins and is especailly good to relieve stress. B complex is especially good for pre-diabetics and diabetics because it lowers a sulfur containing amino acid & assists in lowering blood levels. The B-complex vitamin consists of 8 vitamins that assist in energy production by enzymes and is a rich source of all the B vitamins. All of the B-complex vitamins are water soluble which means they dissolve in water and are not stored in your system. They can not hurt you.
Natural Sources: come from Meat , Fish, Poultry, Eggs, Milk, cheese, grains, Legumes, Vegetables, Fruits

I personally take High potency because I was insulin resistant and pease note that most sleep deprived people don't snack on fruits and vegetables and too little sleep can raise your diabetes risk...High blood glucose can wake you up to urinate, while low blood glucose can wake you with hunger...So if you wake frequently in the night, controlling blood levels should be you concern.....

Foods containing tryptophan make a person sleepy..to get a good nights sleep combined a tryptophan and a carb as a bedtime snack. Cottage cheese is high in casein protein it is the perfect food to consume before bed...Casein digests more slowly than other types of protein and hence can supply the muscles with a steady stream of amino acids while the body is alseep....
it is also an effcient fat burner.

Eating a high-protein meal without a carbohydrate may keep you awake, since protein-rich foods also contain the amino acid, tyrosine, which perks up the brain..eat cottage cheese, 1 ounce of cheese, Seafood ,Meats Poultry, Whole grains, Bean,s Rice, Hummus, Lentils. Hazelnuts, Peanuts, Eggs, Sesame seeds, sunflower seeds 2 hours b-4 bedtime

I don't have a very good reason why I started taking it. I guess I just thought it would be a good idea. I thought it would be good for stress and energy.

The multi-vitamin I am taking is Centrum for Women under 50. And it does have all the things the B Complex has.

I noticed I have been trouble getting a whole nights sleep. I sleep for four hours and then wake up. I don't know if this has to do with it or just the changes in my diet.

I think i will stop taking it and just continue with the multi-vitamin.

The question arises - why did you start taking the B complex? Did you ascertain that you have a deficiency in the B vitamins?

If you just took it because "it seemed like a good idea" or you did have a deficiency but weren't on the multi then, then it might not be a good idea to continue with them.

Apart from a general daily multi, you shouldn't really take any other vitamins unless you can ascertain that (including your multi) you are deficient in that particular vitamin.

Your multivitamin-mineral supplement---probably contains the B-vitamins already; probably at about 100% of need. check the label. If the B-complex was not prescribed by your doctor, you probably don't need it---and it is just a waste of money.
