For how long can be magnesium+vitamin b6(25-40mg/day for b6) administered for chronic fatigue without having neurological side effects?

100+ years: There is no possibility of neurological side effects from 40 mg a day of b6. Usually one has to take at least 1000 mg /day for a long time, but it has been reported at doses as low as 250 mg/day. 40 mg/day is quite safe. ...Read more

I've started taking magnesium and vit B6 tablets and have since had two spells of dry flushing on face, arms and chest. Could the tabs cause this?

I've started taking magnesium and vit B6 tablets and have since had two spells of dry flushing on face, arms and chest. Could the tabs cause this?

Very unlikely: When given IV magnesium can cause a warm flushing sensation deep within, not on the skin, but i've never heard of this happening with oral magnesium as one doesn't get a high level in the blood at once. B6 will not cause this. The only vitamin that causes flushing is b3 in the Niacin form (not as niacineamide) so this is almost certainly a coincidence unless it's an unusual reaction to excipients. ...Read more

Would vitamin B6 change my inr? What about vitd, calcium, magnesium and vit c?

Would vitamin B6 change my inr? What about vitd, calcium, magnesium and vit c?

Vit C & Vit K: Taking large quantities (> 2000mg/day) of vitamin c could affect your inr. Most multivitamins contain less than this, though. The other nutrients you list would not effect inr. Vitamin k can, though. Please check your multivitamin ingredients to know whether it contains vit k. It's essential to keep your intake of this vitamin stable, so that your bleeding time will also be stable. ...Read more

Multivitamin has 100% daily vitamin B12 (6 mcg) and B6 (2 mg), and 50 mg magnesium. Can I still take b-complex drops and slowmag (magnesium chloride)?

Multivitamin has 100% daily vitamin B12 (6 mcg) and B6 (2 mg), and 50 mg magnesium. Can I still take b-complex drops and slowmag (magnesium chloride)?

Yes: The amounts that are in your multivitamin, so it is safe to take an additional b-complex and magnesium chloride. The question really should be if you need to take these. There are certain conditions for which it is a good idea to take a multivitamin or even higher dose vitamins/minerals/other supplement, but many people don't need to take anything additional over a healthy diet. ...Read more
