gnc women's ultra mega and CLA

A nurse I know recommended I take GNC Women's Ultra Mega Energy and Metabolism as a multi vitamin. The bottle says it goes well with CLA and I know some like and some dislike CLA. It's something I have wanted to try. I bought both and started taking today. I haven't noticed any heart racing or feeling off. I don't know much about vitamins. What are your thoughts?

I don't like that the multi has iron, but otherwise it definitely looks like a mega multivitamin with all kinds of stuff, and nothing I'm wary of, but maybe someone smarter than me will see something I don't. I also started taking CLA this week, as well as L-Carnitine for energy. I'll also mention I've started going to the gym for a real work out 3 times a week, seeing a personal trainer, and throwing in 1-3 yoga classes a week.
