Hair loss from Vitamins?

I recently read the bottle of my vitamins. I've been taking the same multi-vitamin for a couple years now. I just now looked at the back of the bottle and it says to discontinue if the following symptoms occur. One of them is hair loss. Exactly how would you pin that to the vitamins? Being that it takes so long to realize hair loss... how would you even know it were from the vitamins? What is in these vitamins that could even cause that?

Which brand is it? Which vitamins does it have and in what quantities? It would be very strange if a multi-vitamin actually caused hair loss; if it has minerals like iron in very large quantities then maybe, but otherwise I wouldn't be too concerned.

I think it is better to stop for time. Then you can know that it because of those tablets are not. If hair not contuine to fall then you can use those tablets. But some vitamin tablets may cause hair loss.
