Common Questions and Answers about Vitamin b6 effects


6534481 tn?1398018501 Has anyone ever tried b6 for nausea? If so, did it work and did you notice the effects immediately or did it take time to kick in?
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.
Avatar f tn m concerned about possible effects a high dosage of b6 has on pregnancy and developing baby. But I also read that since b6 helps produce progesterone, if you stop taking it right after getting pregnant your progesterone levels will decrease putting the pregnancy at risk. Please advise. Thank you.
Avatar f tn My doctor told me to take vitamin b6 to help with nausea. So I think it might help you with nausea and lessen the effects. She told me to take either 25mg 4 times a day or take 100 mg 1 time a day.
Avatar m tn the typical dose is 2.5-25 mg daily for three weeks, then 1.5-2.5 mg per day as maintenance treatment. For vitamin B6 deficiency in women taking birth control pills: the dose is 25-30 mg per day. Dosages up to 500 mg/day can be used in other circumstances. Vitamin B6 can cause anxiety; it can also cause very disturbing, vivid dreams. I have to be very careful with it. You should talk to your doctor to see if that could be causing your anxiety.
Avatar f tn Vitamin B6 has many health benefits, but it also has some side effects. Long-term use of vitamin B6 may cause headaches, Sleepiness, Loss of appetite, and burning, tingling, or prickling sensation in the feet and hands.
Avatar n tn I take vitamin B12 Complex once a day and there are no side effects to this dietary supplement. This is actually a great source and mineral for the reduction of anxiety disorders. Of course, like any oral med/mineral, it's possible to overdose...but you'd have to take a hell of a lot to get to this point! To me, u cannot get enough of Vitamin B....
Avatar f tn i've read on the internet that deficiency of vitamin B1 B3 B6 and B12 might make worse the feeling of anxiety and stress. does anyone know if these vitamins will help with this feelings of anxiety and stress?

Avatar f tn high dosage, slow release vitamin B3; and very high dosage vitamin B6 alone (i.e. without vitamin B complex) are sometimes associated with vitamin side effects that usually rapidly cease with supplement reduction or cessation. With few exceptions, like some vitamins from B complex, hypervitaminosis usually occurs more with fat-soluble vitamins, which are stored in the liver and fatty tissues of the body.
Avatar m tn The psychologist suggested me Prozac along with Alzivit(Folic acid+Vitamin B6+Vitamin B12) and Vitamin D3. I have decided to first try these multivitamins and see if the situation improves before going on to SSRIs. Also, I have heard folic acid is bad for ocd. So can I order seperate supplements for Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B12 and take them?
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 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 n tn From what you have stated in your question, you are at the upper limits for vitamin C and E, decrease Zinc to 40mg, and suggest not increasing the other doses. You did not state the vitamin Bs you are taking. Vitamin B6 recommended dose for Adult male is 1.3mg a day (upper limit 100mg), and Niacin 16 mg a day (upper limit 35mg). You stated that you were having muscle problems, are you eating enough potassium foods (oranges, orange juice, potatoes, bananas, etc)?
Avatar m tn I have done a medline search for articles that involve controlled trials of Vitamin B6 and cognition or mood. There are a few studies on this topic but none of them found a difference between Vitamin B6 and placebo on mood. On the other hand, as Jaquta said, there are enough reports of short term mood enhancing effects of B vitamins that it is hard to dismiss the experience as a placebo response.
Avatar n tn but yes i can see how it effects you trying to concieve.have you tried vitamin B6 this is good for getting your cycle on track,as for trying for 6 months with no success.that is a short time really.can take couples years to concieve.however since your cycle is a bit wacky,i would concentrate on getting that regular first.once this is sorted then concieveing should be easy.since you will know your ovulation.failing that bed from cd12 onwards.until you are confident you have ovulated.
