Why would my vitamin b6 blood levels be high? Is this from toxicity or deficiency?

Need more info: What was result of testing? All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, if you taking a regular mixed diet you are neither deficient nor with toxicity from B6.

Why?: Why did you test for it? And why did you start it?
It is a water soluble vitamin so you can reduce the dose to normal range.
