Long term (2+ years) supplementation of 500-5,000mg/day will result in medical issues, such as neuropathy which maybe reversible with discontinuing the supplement and lowering high B6 foods. The recommended daily dose is 1.3mg for men & women ages 19-50 and 1.7 for men >50 years old.

Avatar m tn The Serenity compound is a blend of herbs, and might be helpful. It might make you a little drowsy. The homeopathic remedies are also possibly helpful. But the best way to do this, since it's trial and error for us all, is to see a naturopath, or buy that book I recommended and try something. And again, I'm assuming you're not on medication. The herbs that are considered the best of long term balancing are green oats, passionflower, cactus grandiflora.

Avatar f tn When I got really ill last October I was pretty much taking my multi b (50mg b6) and multivitamin (25mg b6) every day up until I got my b6 result a couple of weeks ago. Reading up on B6 toxicity it certainly explain alot of my symptoms (especially the neuropathy, which I had nerve conduction test for about a month ago and came up normal!). My question is, is my level considered a b6 toxicity? Has anyone had similiar levels and recovered?
Avatar n tn The ingestion of megadoses or more than 500 mg/day, of pyridoxine or vitamin B6, to treat carpal tunnel syndrome or premenstrual syndrome, may cause toxicity. Recovery is usually slow and sometimes difficult if severe symptoms had developed. On the other hand, Vitamin B12 or cyanocobalamin deficiency, is often associated with gastric bypass. It is best that you discontinue any vitamin intake and check with your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.

I take no vitamins with b6 in them only Calcium and B3. I checked to make sure there was no B6. Since then it has fluxuated with the lowest being 285. I had a blood test last week and it is back up to 1000. Do you have any ideas of what to do next. My neurologist suggested that maybe I should see a endrocronologist.
