I haven't being diagnosed with depression and I don't think I have it.... I just need help. I just turned 24....two children and long term partner. I'm waking up every single night from nightmares now....it's 4am....I'm sitting up smoking a cigarette trying to calm down after having woken myself up screaming out for my partner in my sleep...

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 m tn s not enough to put in small amounts, they put in up to 500%-1500% of the recommended daily amount. One of the adverse effects I find with B6 is that it causes vivid dreams or actual nightmares, so I can always tell if I've taken too much. I can only take, even the B-Complex my neuro recommends for my neuropathy, for a month or so because I begin having nightmares or dreams, whereas, typically, I don't remember my dreams.
Avatar m tn Hi there - This is a long story, but I'll try to keep details to a minimum. I am a 50-year-old woman. For over three months now, I've had pins and needles, tingling, static-feeling on skin surface, and all kinds of related, weird skin sensations in both feet and both legs. This came up out of the blue, and I've literally had it every single day, fairly constantly to at least some extent, since it began.
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 A study tested the effects of B vitamin supplements on more than 500 patients who had undergone coronary angioplasty. Half of the group received a supplement of folic acid, vitamin B6 and B12, while the other half received a placebo. Following up on the patients for a full year, the researchers found that the B supplement not only slowed the development of plaque build up in the arteries, but actually prevented it from occurring.
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.
Avatar f tn I was wondering if anyone here knew anything about Vitamin B6 toxicity. I have discovered my blood level is high at 124.2 ng/mL (normal = 2.1 - 21.7 ng/mL). I am experiencing some strange symptoms like blurred vision, humming in my ears, difficulty swallowing and lack of coordination and numbness in my hands and feet. I know the numbness can be a symptom, but I am unsure about the other things. I also am unsure if it's possible to have a high blood level of B6 and not have toxicity.
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.
1209948 tn?1266069659 It is recommended not to take any supplement of vitamin B6 and try not to eat large amounts of foods high in vitamin B6 at meals for 6 months.

It is a required vitamin and is needed in numerous necessary processes in our bodies. Eat with caution and small amounts.
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.
