Taking a multivitamin should not increase the frequency of urination though it could effect the color and smell of your urine.

The short answer is: probably not, but if you're worried you should see your doctor. The most common causes of frequent urination are urinary tract infections, or from simply drinking more water throughout the day - if your water intake goes up, your water output has to go up too.
