How do you that it: is due to B6 deficiency. You ought consult a neurologist to determine the cause of peripheral neuropathy and treat the cause. Excess of B6 can itself cause neuropathy. You may visit these two sites for information and then discuss the matter with your doctor. http://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/vitamin-b6/background/HRB-20058788 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16320662
