My vitamin intake, is it too much?

Hello, I am a 47 year old and just started taking vitamins for the last couple of days and work out at the gym frequently.
I was wondering if someone could tell me if they think I am taking too many vitamins?
This is what I currently take, I take 15 different tablets every day:

Each serving contains 11 different vitamins in each animal pac:

Other Ingredients:
Maltodextrin, calcium sulfate, choline citrate, magnesium stearate, stearic acid, parsley, goldenseal, don qual, burdock, alfalfa, water cress, rice bran, cellulose, and rose hips.
I take the above alone at night.

Plus when I wake up in the morning I take:

one 1200 mg fish oil pill.
one centrum performance multivitamin tablet.
one 200 mg B6 tablet.
one 500 mcg B12 tablet.

That adds up to 15 vitamins in one day.
