How long does neuropathy caused by vitamin 6 last if i've taken 200 mg a day for 3 months?

How long does neuropathy caused by vitamin 6 last if i've taken 200 mg a day for 3 months?

Depends: I think the problem may possibly have been caused by you not taking the active form of b6. When the inactive form is taken, there is a rate limiting factor in conversion, resulting in a relative deficiency of the active form. This can result in neuropathy. It is possible that taking the active form, pyridoxal 5 phosphate, may help. ...Read more

I'm currently vitamin D deficient last checked (16). I want to purchase some vitamin D3. But I'm unsure of the dosage and how long I should take it.

I'm currently vitamin D deficient last checked (16). I want to purchase some vitamin D3. But I'm unsure of the dosage and how long I should take it.

Try 5000 iu/day: Most adults need to take 5-8000 iu/day to achieve optimal levels, which are 50-80. Everyone in US should take Vit D3 in fall and winter months as it is impossible to get D from the sun at that time. If you get enough sun in summer you don't need to take it then, but you do not seem to be getting sun so I advise you take it year-round.

How long after starting a b complex vitamin should I start feeling better again?

How long after starting a b complex vitamin should I start feeling better again?

Depends...: B complex vitamin is often taken to help with stress. Magnesium, zinc, other trace minerals and phytonutrients are all also important to recover from stress.
