does anyone know?
I think it depends on the vitamin.

If it's really important, it should already be on the label. If not, then gradually take your desired amount until you feel a difference. That's what I do.

as patrick said, it totally depends on the vitamin, but it also depends if an individual is a male or female, and is also dependant on age. if an individual is an athlete (Ie. bodybuilder, soccer player, hockey, etc) certain vitamins are in higher demand by the body, and therefore that individual may consume higher doses than the average person. the labels on the bottles are usually good indications. if you are ever unsure, check with your pharmacist or doctor.

liquid vitamins eh?
I'd trust the liquid vitamins. They're no different than the regular stuff. This is the only drawback: with the pill form, you know exactly how much you should take for your daily value, whereas with liquid it's more estimated than exact.

There are certain vitamins that you should not take more than the 100% daily value. Iron being one of them. Hopefully the chart that one of the above posts mentioned will help you out a lot. Most vitamins that are taken in excess will simply be flushed out by your body, but some still should not be taken in excess.
