Default yeast nutrient?

What negative effects would you get if you added extra yeast nutrient to a batch of cider.
My latest 5 gallon batch seems to be struggling to get started and now Im wondering I added nutrient. Im pretty sure I did, but since its not fermenting, its got me wondering.
Would it harm anything if I added more?

Adding a second dose and a good shake early in the ferment won't hurt.
