Benign fasicucilation sydrome -is there anything in addition to B6 and magnesium that can improve this?

Botox has been used successful ly in patients with a particular muscle that is troublesome. Carbamezepine has been used successful ly.

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
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

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
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

Without a deficiency: There may be little benefit if you are not deficient. B6 has a toxicity state. Its one of the few water soluable vitamins that does. B12 deficiency often requires replacement bypass the GI tract (sublingual and intramuscular) as the problem generally is not an intake deficiency but rather a loss of ability to absorb it. Thiamine is rarely deficient: one has to be really malnourished. ...Read more

Does vitamin B6 help to increase progestrone and how much dosage should I take? Is thre any other benefit of vitamin b6 while trying to conceive?
Not really: Vitamin B6 is not an ovulation induction agent. There are specific medications such as Clomid for that purpose. The B vitamins as a family are important for energy metabolism and overall health. I wouldn't just focus on B6 if I were you. It's better to take a B vitamin complex that has them all. ...Read more

You do not need to take B12 just because you are taking B6. You probably do not need to take either. Do you have any symptoms? Did a doctor prescribe any of these vitamins?
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
