Hi, roseday side-effects include allergic reaction to more serious side effects like:Myopathy-muscle pain,or weakness with fever or flu like symptoms.,- Rhabdomyolysis-a condition that results in the breakdown of skeletal muscle tissue. This condition can lead to kidney failure, and may be more likely to occur in older adults.Also can cause juandice.Like all statins-roseday can also cause Diabetes.But these side-effects are not seen in all patients.This drug is relatively safe,you can take this medication as advised by your doctor,if you develop any of the symptoms that I have mentioned above you can immediately consult your doctor.Regarding multi-vitamin its better to avoid any iodine containing tablet as you have just recovered from your hyperthyroidism.consult your doctor and start multi-vitamin as advised by him.Hope this information is helpful to you.All the best.
