Can you overdose on B12 and B1 vitamins? I take them sublingually

Not really: These vitamins are water soluble and are quickly excreted by the kidneys. On the other hand, fat soluble vitamins like A, D, E and K can accumulate in the fatty tissues and in the case of A&D cause serious illness or death. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!

I bought 500mg of vitamin b1 thiamine, is that too much?

DANGER: Replacing any of your b vitamins (especially in high dose) without ensuring an adequate intake of all your b vitamins can result in an overall deficiency of the ones not replaced. This is because the b vitamins often work in concert. Driving pathways that require b1 that also require b2/b3 can create a relative deficiency. Having too many members of the brass section can drown out the strings.

When vitamin b1 is consumed in excess of your needs, how does the body deal with the excess?

When vitamin b1 is consumed in excess of your needs, how does the body deal with the excess?

Excreted in urine: When you take more b1 than you need your body excretes the excess in your urine, resulting in a bright yellow color & b vitamin odor. If you take b1 & this happens, it does not mean you did not need it. When you drink water much of that is eliminated in your urine, but that does not mean you did not need water or that it was not useful as it passed thru you. B1 is non-toxic- high doses don't harm.
