Timing Of Taking Vitamin B Complex With Keppra
Not the best option: For those who have a b vitamin deficiency, taking supplements may be helpful to some degree. Those who don't may notice more energy which can sometimes worsen anxiety. Exercise, eating a healthy diet (less sugar and caffeine) and cognitive behavioral therapy are other ways to manage anxiety. ...Read more
Is 1000iu the daily dosage I should be taking (vitamin d3) I'm currently also taking vitamin b complex & panax ginseng. I'm 23.
It depends...: This depends on how much vit d you get from the sun. In spring & summer about 10 minutes of exposure to midday sun allows us to make enough d if you don't use sunscreen. In fall & winter months most adults need 5-8000 iu/day to achieve optimal levels of vit d. Testing your d levels can help you determine your needs. See http://bit.

I have been taking vitamin b complex and e pills after workout for a week now & I am noticing that my urine is getting yellow. Is it because of pills?
What can boost my energy and mood? I heard dhea is good? I'm 23 female currently only taking vitamin b complex & vitamin d3. Thanks!
Don't fool with: Mother nature! Dhea pills generally don't contain much dhea, and even if they did, dhea is metabolized into cortisone, estrogen and testosterone -- and you don't have any way to control which it is converted into. Why take something that can't help you and can potentially harm you? Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or internet scams. How about getting counseling rather than rx? ...Read more
I am using 300 mcg biotin 1 per day. And with this tablet I m taking vitamin B complex, vitamin E 200mg, and multivitamin. Is it ok?
Yes as long as...:
That is fine. None of the things you are taking are likely to be toxic as long as the Vit E you are taking is natural with mixed tocopherols; there is evidence synthetic E (dl-alpha tocopherol) is toxic & even natural E should contain mixed tocopherols. Make sure your multivitamin is high quality- see http://bit. Ly/18XyuLe & http://bit. Ly/1b36cQ0

Will taking vitamin b complex and zinc help to get rid of a fissured tongue? If not what will? A lot say its benign but I would like to get rid of it!
Probably not but...:
While western medicine considers fissured tongues to be benign, chinese medicine considers it a sign of imbalances in your GI tract. Seeing a chinese medical practitioner may be helpful. See http://www. Rdhmag. Com/articles/print/volume-31/issue-5/columns/the-tongue-a-window-to-other-organs. Html

Been taking vitamin b complex (125) for about 3 months now notice tingling, numbness @ fingers. Is there something a can take to get rid of B6 fast?
Probably not from B6: Extensive evidence shows that it's unusual to have adverse effects from b6 unless one takes 600 mg a day or more, though there are rare reports of adverse effects with doses as low as 200 mg/day. 125 mg is not known to cause neuropathy. Your symptoms are probably not due to b6. B6 does not accumulate in the body so if you stop it you will eliminate it quickly. See a doc to assess the true cause. ...Read more

I've started taking vitamin b complex and I've not been feeling right. Dizzy, bruises on legs, aches and pains. Is this normal?
B complex isn't known to cause any of your symptoms and, if anything, should help you feel better. 2 possibilities: this is a coincidence or you're allergic to some of the ingredients in the B Complex you are taking- not the vitamins themselves but fillers/binders.
Try stopping the B complex and see if your symptoms go away. If not, see a Dr. To find the cause. If they do try different B complex. ...Read more
I'm 23 years old. Currently taking vitamin D3 (1000ui), vitamin b complex, and panax ginseng. What's the ailu dosage of vit d3? I don't get much sun.
Vitamin D level: Knowing your vitamin d level would be helpful. If you are deficient (and depending how deficient), you will need supplementation so that you can get your level back to normal. If your vitamin d level is normal, then you may want a maintenance dose. D3 is cholecalciferol, a standard form that is taken orally. D2 is ergocalciferol, if taken is in a large 50k international unit (iu) dose once weekly. ...Read more
I am taking a vitamin b complex supplement daily, can I take a daily multi vitamin in addition to that and if so what would you recommend I take?
While b complex is often helpful, it doesn't have the many other essential nutrients found in a multivit. As long as the total amount of b6 in both supplements doesn't exceed 200 mg (which is unlikely) it's safe to take both, though it may not be necessary to take an extra b complex if you get a good multivitamin. There are many good brands- see http://bit. Ly/1b36cq0

It depends on: If you have any nutritional deficiencies, reasons for a nutritionally incomplete diet or malabsorption syndromes. Remember if you don't have any defined nutritional deficiencies you are better off getting your micronutrients like the B vitamins from whole foods rather than from supplementation. Alternatively if all you have is a B12 deficiency then you should be fine with a B12 supplement. ...Read more

Good question: B12 is typically given under the tongue (pill or liquid) or by shot. Although there is some B12 in b complex pills chances our its not enough or can't be properly absorbed by the last 5 inches of your small intestine. (B12 absorbtion requires first binding to intrinsic factor made in the stomach) either the stomach is dammaged or the small intestine has a problems. B complex varies in content. ...Read more

Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
