Nausea,more energy: I advise everyone to take a B complex and/or multivitamin daily, as most people do not adequate B vitamins from their diet. This is very safe, but some people get nausea if they take B's on an empty stomach so take with food. B's may increase energy so some may have trouble sleeping if they take them at nite. Also, B vitamins may turn your urine yellow and smell like B vitamins.

Only if continued: B6 is the only b vitamin known to be toxic, but one has to take at least 250 mg (and usually at least 500 mg) a day for several months before this occurs; the problem it causes is peripheral neuropathy and it is reversible after you stop it.
