6534481 tn?1398018501 Yes! 50mg vitamin B6 with half a 25mg tablet of unisom every night before bed. By the second night I had relief and took it religiously up until 3rd trimester.

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 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 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 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.
1034473 tn?1252655732 Hello all, please forgive me if I have posted in the wrong place, this is my first time here! We are currently trying to conceive our 3rd child, I stopped the pill in May 09 and since then I have had 3 periods (not including withdrawl bleed after finishing pill pack) The first cycle was 34 days and like a normal period. Second was 23 days and third was 30 days. These were both extremely light periods more like spotting and mainly 'old' blood.
Avatar m tn Vitamin B6 is found naturally in our foods, however, B6 supplements are the main reason for toxicity of vitamin B6. 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.

It is a required vitamin and is needed in numerous necessary processes in our bodies. Eat with caution and small amounts.
Avatar f tn I want to get some but there are sooooo many out there. Is one brand better than another? When I look at info on the internet, it say make sure you get a "reliable" brand...so now I'm confused. Thanks in advance!
Avatar m tn Thanks for your comment on Vitamin B6 toxicity. I'm wondering if a long term B6 blood level of 90 (with 2 - 21.1 being normal) could cause sensory neuropathy? Thank you.
