Avatar m tn b6 can cause alot more than depression. it can cause irreversible nerve damage. from personal experience, be careful how much you take. 100mg-200mg daily for me caused some very disturbing symptoms. numbness, tingling, pricks/pins/needles, shocks, buzzing/vibrating, muscle twitches, muscle weakness, severe fatigue, diziness, lighheadedness, anxiety, irritability etc. was diagnosed with b6 toxicity recently. beware of b6. it is a dangerous "water-soluble" vitamin.
Avatar n tn Furthermore, there seems to be some fascinating details surrounding this co-enzymated version of vitamin B6 and that process in particular, based on some limited studies. Who's behind these studies and/or the websites that are offering this type of advise, that's always a problem, as many of you know, so you just never know.

Avatar f tn I saw several people walk away cancer free, (breast, lung, colon and pancreatic). Unfortunately, I have a blood cancer and it did not work for me. I certainly believe it is worth a try. Best of Luck!
798555 tn?1292787551 pyridoxine, an alcohol; pyridoxal, an aldehyde; and pyridoxamine, which contains an amino group; and their respective 5'-phosphate esters. Pyridoxal 5' phosphate (PLP) and pyridoxamine 5' phosphate (PMP) are the active coenzyme forms of vitamin B6 [1,2]. Substantial proportions of the naturally occurring pyridoxine in fruits, vegetables, and grains exist in glycosylated forms that exhibit reduced bioavailability.
Avatar f tn m very happy about haha got blood tests today so get my results tomorrow so hopefully its nothing serious like lung cancer or anything and just a virus :/
Avatar f tn I recently had my vitamins and minerals checked and all were within range except for B6 which was 558 nmol/L (range 30-110 nmol/L). I was on a b complex (50mg b6) and multivitamin on and off for alot of last year just on days I felt a bit run down. 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.
Avatar f tn and its much more of B12 vitamins that would adjust the levels that deal with anxiety than a b6 vitamin. good luck and if you feel its working.. keep taken them..
Avatar n tn Hi, Regarding vitamin B6, a water soluble vitamin is essential for the normal and optimal functioning of the body. The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) is the average daily dietary intake level that is sufficient to meet the nutrient requirements. RDAs for vitamin B6 (in milligrams), are: 1.3 mg for men and women under age 50; 1.7 mg for men and 1.5 mg for women over the age of 50, 1.9 mg for pregnant women, and 2 mg for women who are breastfeeding.
Avatar n tn My Father has small cell lung cancer. He is 64 and he is taking chemo. The tumor is actually responding really well to the chemo but I have a couple questions about his diet right now as this is my main concern because he is weak and has no appetite. I am overwhelmed with what he should eat and what he should avoid and have a hard time getting someone to tell me the answers. The doctors have stated right after chemo, there is a down period...
Avatar f tn I was also diagnosed with latent tuberculosis in June 2017. I have been on Isoniazid and B6 and will be on it for another 6 months. I am on oxygen at night for 2 and a half years. Haven't seen the Pulmonary Dr. Since June 2016. I have been getting out of breath with any and all activity including walking, house choresand grocery shopping. What do you suggest I do and what should I be concerned about? Sleep study was done in April of this year. I still smoke and have smoked for 55 years.
Avatar f tn I have been reading the posts on Vitamin b6 toxicity. I started having the pins and needles 6 months ago. My neurologist did a B6 test and my B^ level was 1400. 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.
Avatar m tn B6 toxicity is nothing to fool around with, and remember, B6 is in balance with B12 and folic acid, so long-term use of just one of these will throw the others out of balance. I'd find another treatment plan.

549269 tn?1236130637 I looked too and found the same references to cancer that frightened you so much. Perhaps the doctor is just using that as a generic term ... This section from Mayo clinic will walk you through the discssion if you haven't already seen this. http://www.****.*** Definition Paraneoplastic syndromes are a group of rare disorders that develop in some people with cancer, most commonly in people with lung, breast or ovarian cancer.
Avatar f tn I take Cymbalta for my nerves pain due to irritation of the nerves passing thru the suboccipital triangle resulting in pressure pain in the back of my head, scalp, forehead and bridge of the nose ( neuralgia ). Very annoying. The injury is 7 month old and i can't take it anymore that's so i added Lyrica too today to hope for a complete relief or at least less debilitating pain. Going into physiotherapy and i'll try a TENS... I wasn't able to self-treat myself.
Avatar f tn Thyroid UK - The Role of Vitamins in Thyroid Deficiency The Tolerable Upper Intake Level (all sources both diet and supplements) for vitamin B6 is 100 mg daily. The first major report of vitamin B6 toxicity appeared in the early 1980's. Until then, scientists believed vitamin B6 was like other water soluble vitamins and can could not be toxic. The reports of neurological damage were after taking 200mcg of vitamin B6 daily for two months or more.
Avatar n tn Peaches, Milk, Peas, Carrots, Ground Beef, Brown Rice, Soybeans, Avocado, Banana, and Turkey. Suggest going to your MD and get blood work done to see your vitamin B6 levels.
Avatar m tn You could avoid supplements that contain B6 and limit your intake of foods rich in vitamin B6, such as fortified cereal, bananas, salmon, turkey, chicken, potatoes, spinach and hazelnuts.
