Hey doc. So I got a headache the moment I drank a pill of B Vitamins. It's the first pill I drank in months and I'm scared. What should I do? It's affecting my body too, I guess. My back and my stomach are hurting along with my head.
Vitamins: Vitamins do not cause this. Sounds like you may have something else like a viral illness. ...Read more
Vitamin b complex caused me to break out in acne, after taking it for a year, how long will it take for my skin to improve? I've stopped taking it.
There's no telling: Trying to figure out what's causing one to have acne is futile. Ignore all "pop" ideas and start using topical benzoyl peroxide 1-2x daily, perhaps 5%. It's not pleasant but it's your best friend. If it doesn't clear you, your physician can add prescription strength Rx. My acne remitted when I was 50; yours will too, someday. Until then, manage it like the serious medical problem that it is. ...Read more
Can the supplement vitamin b-12 cause painful (widening) of blood vessels to the skin (feet) resulting in skin feeling hot?
Vit B-12: People frequently feel flushing, usually of face, sometimes to the point that they are unable to take it. The feet swelling would suggest something else going on. ...Read more
B 12 deficiency: B 12 deficiency usually happens on people with history of gastric resection, ilium resection, inflammatory conditions of the intestine, alcoholosim, chronic antibiotic use (intestinal bacterial overgrowth sydrome), strict vegetarians, patients taking metformin or anti acid medications. Sometimes we can't explain it. Keep talking to your doctor. ...Read more
Metabolism: B vitamins are critical components of cellular metabolism. They are catalysts, or assistants, for most of the reactions that turn food into energy in the body. If you do not have enough b vitamins, you do not turn food into energy in an efficient manner. This leads to low energy levels, low blood counts, etc. ...Read more
Lack energy & wakefulness. Ongoing for past months. Coffee, energy drinks, vitamin b no effect. Lot of same during adolescents. Blood tests normal. Help?
Many causes...: Fatigue and sleep difficulties have SO many causes (not only physical but also emotional). My advice, stop the artificial attempts to increase energy (they are likely working against you). Drink 1 1/2 liters of water per day. Eat balanced clean diet. Exercise daily. Meditate. See your doctor if your symptoms are not improving to rule out medical causes. ...Read more
As a direct result: Of being malnourished, if the major source of nutrition was animal products (particularly liver), that could possibly, maybe be a cause. Vitamin b levels may increase during the "refeeding" process especially if there's also supplementation with Vitamins A & C. Hope this helps! Dr. Anne ...Read more
In some, yes: Some people are more sensitive to b vitamins and can experience anxiety and even panic with them. Vitamin b6 may be especially likely to cause this, even though given for nervous system support. It is known to increase the vividness of dreaming. However, many people do very well with b complex, with no anxiety whatsoever. ...Read more
No: The rda is generally not enough to promote health, only mitigate disease. High doses of b vitamins are great for stress (adrenal health), energy, memory and neuropathies. B vitamins are water soluble, so if your body doesn't need them, you will urinate them out. My concern with GNC products is that the label may not reflect what is present (vitamins and fillers/toxins). ...Read more
Having sx's on B6 toxicity (neuropathy, tingling, shocking feeling) not taking any b vitamins. Level is 134, no other cause for sx's found, what is this?
Not B-6 toxicity: These sound like symptoms of magnesium deficiency which is often found in conjunction with cadmium toxicity coming from stresses of many kinds. Check vit d3 and homocysteine levels. You could have a need for methyl folate, (folic acid) methyl cobalamine and the whole b complex. Re-evaluate life style to promote overall health with sleep, diet, exercise and stress management. ...Read more
At bed time I get goosebumps everywhere and am very cold. Dr checked thyroid, b vitamins normal. History pots and ehlers danlos. What else can cause?
Muscle contraction: Goose bumps are caused by the contraction of small smooth muscles in the skin, arrector pili. The main stimulus for goose bumps is the body trying to retain heat so it goes with your sense of cold. It could be linked to Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia syndrome as these skin smooth muscle contractions are triggered by stimulation of the autonomic nervous system, the same system affected by POTS. ...Read more
Is vitamin b good for hair loss? I am a 49 year old female with very thin hair on the top of my head, what would you suggest?
Hye. I want to ask. Can I take vitamin b complex when im on acne antibiotic for 3 month? . And can I take vitamin C as extra supplement for my skin?
Yes, and also...: No problem taking b complex and vitamin c while on antibiotics. I also strongly advise zinc, vitamin a & vit. E (make sure it is natural with mixed tocopherols), all proven to help acne. I also advise taking probiotics including sacchromyces boulardii to reduce imbalances in flora caused by antibiotics.

31 yr-old woman diagnosed in China with allergic purpura (capillary toxicosis); is treating with OTC Transfer Factor Oral Solution. What is this.....?
B Vitamins: All B vitamins are water soluble and are therefore not stored up in the body and rapidly eliminated, most often by the kidney. Some B vitamins go through a metabolic process in the liver before being excreted by the kidney. It is very difficult to overdose on B vitamins because the body takes what it needs and excretes the rest rather quickly. ...Read more
Vitamins: The b vitamins are water soluble. This means that if you take more than you need the body gets rid of them. Vitamins a d e and k are fat soluble and can cause illness if taken in excess. ...Read more
It depends: B vits. Will help many with anxiety while many may not be helped at all. If you are among the 30% who can't convert Folic Acid to its active form then 400 mcg of l-5-mthf will help. Many only need the rda's of b's but some, due to genetics, need more. Some need the active forms of b2 & b6. I like b complex plus by pure encapsulations as a balanced b with active forms in reasonable doses. See comment:. ...Read more
