6534481 tn?1398022101 I guess there's a danger of taking too much....? I tried it a couple times with zero effect. So wondering if it takes time to get in your system. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you!
Avatar f tn Numbness in hands and feet with carpal tunnel syndrome. I am looking for people to share their stories of too much B6 - did this ever go away and if so, how long did it take?
Avatar f tn My doc gave some sapmle pills which didn't help at all, but she said Vitamin B6 helps too. I got the vitamin from Target up and up brand, but before taking it I read the label and it was saying that it's not intended for pregnant women, I am a little confused... I probably should trust my doc but I am a little afraid, maybe I should get different brand? I don't think the brand will change vitamin content...does anyone take vitamin B6 for nausea, does it really help?
Avatar f tn Too little folate and B12 can leave you with too much B6, for example. These are called the homocysteine vitamins, as they control levels of that substance which has been tied in to heart disease. Some take extra B6 for anxiety and other mood problems, as it's an essential co-factor in producing brain neurotransmitters that contribute to mood. But you don't want too much because of that neuropathy problem.
Avatar m tn Ditto with Gym on this -- that's too high a dose, and why are you choosing B6 in high doses for cholesterol? Fish oil will raise your HDL immediately as it is HDL (or flax oil or hemp seed oil). 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.
Avatar n tn 9 mg for pregnant women, and 2 mg for women who are breastfeeding. About toxicity,--- Too much vitamin B6 can result in nerve damage to the arms and legs. This neuropathy is usually related to high intake of vitamin B6 from supplements, and is reversible when supplementation is stopped. Foods such as fortified breakfast cereals, fish including salmon and tuna fish, meats such as pork and chicken, bananas, beans and peanut butter, and many vegetables will contribute to your vitamin B6 intake.
Avatar n tn I am 107lbs and probably can't handle too much. The maximum recommended intake of b6 in EUROPE is 10mg. There is a reason. This vitamin can cripple. Yet nobody realizes that even though it is considered 'water soluble' - it can do serious irreversible damage.
Avatar f tn Hello :) I joined this forum tonight. I am diagnosed with anxiety disorder and bipolar disorder. For several years I relied heavily on Klonapin for my anxiety and panic attacks. There came a time in my life when my situation got immensely better (I left my abusive ex) and my outlook on life brightened as a very long depression lifted. During that deep depression my tolerance for Klonapin went up from .5mg to 4mg daily. I felt very unhappy with my reliance upon the Klonapin.

1209948 tn?1266073259 You stated your body is in the opposite state with vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 toxicity does cause temporary neurological symptoms, as you stated, which, according to the literature, usually take up to 6 months for it to resolve itself for majority of people. There are some people who do have permanent damage. It is good you are eating lower levels of vitamin B6 foods.
Avatar n tn The MTHFR gene is extremely common and can lead to a problem processing the B Vitamins, making people particularly susceptible to deficiency of B12, folic acid, and Vitamin B6. Ironically, in these cases, Vitamin B6 Levels and Vitamin B12 Levels will be HIGH, despite actually being a DEFICIENCY of these vitamins. This is because the vitamins build up in the bloodstream, where they are measured, but the vitamins can't get into the cells where they are needed.
8976007 tn?1413334250 Too little calcium and the same things will happen. Too much Vitamin C causes too much acidity for some people. Too much calcium of the kind most people take, which is poorly absorbed, can lead to kidney and gall stones and other calcium deposits. These are things that don't happen to most people, but when it does happen it's not fun. Moderation in all things, as the cliche goes, and most nutrition should be from food.
Avatar n tn Are you taking supplements if so you should stop right away because most people can get enough B6 from diet alone. Or you may be eating too much foritifed foods like cereal.
Avatar f tn I was wondering if anyone knew that they had a toxic reaction to taking too much B6 at a high dose for too long? That they had a reaction of a shock, that ran in a current. I think its best describe as a electric current that ran a course. I felt this shock in 4 different spot and then it was repeated. It ran from my diaphragm to esophagus to my heart and to the back of my head. (I had been ill for about 2-3 months after I had ingested three months of 300mg. of B6, when this happened.
Avatar f tn There are some people with rare conditions that may benefit from B6 in that amount. The good news is that if someone takes too much vitamin B6 and develops sensory neuropathy, the symptoms will usually go away once he or she stops taking so much of the vitamin, although it may take several months for symptoms to disappear completely. -- Bruce Bistrian, M.D., Ph.D., Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Mass.
Avatar m tn Hi, How are you?Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in many foods. It performs a wide variety of functions in the body and plays a role in cognitive development. High intakes of vitamin B6 have not been reported to cause adverse effects. However, chronic administration can cause severe and progressive sensory neuropathy characterized by loss of control of bodily movements.
905486 tn?1242438579 Can you take too much folic acid? In the pre-natals I have there is 800 mcg and I found some folic acid pills and they have 400 mcg.. Is that too much??
Avatar f tn I just got my lab work back and my vitamin b12 is up from 790 to over 2000 (too high to read) in a matter of six months. I originally had it tested because I was having tingling (paresthesia) in my left side of my back six months ago. It has since worsened, spreading to my face and arm. My vitamin b 1(one) is low now. 6units in plasma. And my vitamin d is also low despite supplementing.
Avatar f tn I think Vitamin A is the one you want to worry about having too much of. As far as how much B6 is enough, I'm not sure. But it's worth calling your OBGYN or a pharmacist and asking.
Avatar n tn I've read recently that Vitamin B6 deficiency can help cause a lowered sex drive in women, and that women who breastfeed and who are are birth control pills (and I'm assuming also Depopravera) are automatically deficient in this vitamin unless they supplement. How do I find out how much is too much, especially since I don't want to harm the baby while she's still nursing?
Avatar f tn After doing some research about ways of lengthening my LP, I starting taking 100 mg of vitamin b6 and 10 mg of folic acid yesterday in hopes of seeing a change in my cycle length. I feel that we may have achieved pregnancy before but it never took due to the unfavorable conditions along with my low bbts. As you can tell, I don't like to run to my MD about every concern because I don't usually get much support.

171867 tn?1271047748 I do cpatow, I take Methionine w/B6 along with my prenatal Primacare One. My prenatal Vitamin also has B6 25 mg in them, I take the extra because I am so nauseous. It does seem to help.

Avatar m tn Calcium and magnesium are in balance in the body, and too much calcium can leach magnesium out of the body (just as too much magnesium can leach calcium out of the body). The recommended daily amount of Vitamin D is 800 I.U., but some docs and natural physicians believe in very high doses if certain conditions exist. I have no idea what you were taking this for, but if was just for maintenance, you were taking way too much D.
Avatar n tn TO ALL ABOVE IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU ALL ARE CONSUMING TOO MANY PRODUCTS OR FOODS WITH TOO MUCH msg AND ASPARTAME ....
