Is it good to have a drink which contains soy protein, hi-maize, vitamin (a c B6 b12), thiamin b1, niacin b3, folate, (folic acid) sodium, potassium in pregnancy ?
Which form: Which forms the vitamins are can matter. For example, B6 comes inactive and also active. The active form of B6 is pyridoxal-5-phosphate. Too much inactive B6 can actually block active B6 from the B6 receptor, creating symptoms of B6 deficiency. Folic acid is synthetic, and too much can be bad also. Methylfolate and folinic acid are what one should take during pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What are vitamins b3, B6 & B12 and what do they do for you? Would my vitamins interfere with each other?
Can a dr.Or can you purchase vitamin b12-and B6 in injectable form for losing weight, and how or were can I do this?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it healthy to mix both vitamin B12 and B6 and inject the mixture with a syringe right into the butt?
Yes, but: I notice, you are 26 years old. Normally you wouldn't be a candidate for that. That would be very helpful for elderly, who do not absorb well the nutrients from the food or for other folks with certain problems. Best, Siranush Cholakian MD ...Read more

Not vitamins: You need to be under the care of a competent neurologist who can first rule out organic disease using history, physical, labs and imaging. It's a shame to have normal pressure hydrocephalus, chronic subdural hematoma, meningeal tuberculosis, lues, or a tumor written off as a "vitamin deficiency" -- that's not how real vitamin deficiencies present. Get with somebody who knows their stuff. ...Read more
How does one go about lowering a high level of vitamin B12 of 1000? It has been that high since 2010. My B6 is also high - 33.4.
Comments: Am not personally troubled when my patients' B-12 comes back elevated, as it is truly unlikely that there will be any problem in near or distant future, but do have them stop the vitamin and recheck in 3 months. Although B-6 can be toxic in some patients, this too will drop over time if you stop it. Your level is not profoundly elevated, currently. ...Read more
No effect expected: Shots of vitamins b6, b12, or other vitamins should not have an effect on one's weight. The only way for a normal, overweight person to lose weight is to eat fewer calories than he uses up each day. His body will burn up fat to get the additional needed calories that he himself is not eating. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I'm taking a supplement called fertility blend (iherb), some prenatals, B6 and b12. Is this too much vitamins? Can it be harmful to take this much?
Vitamin A: Vitamin a is really the only vitamin that you can take too much of. No more than 5, 000 iu a day. Interesting, a lot of women when tested are vitamin d deficient, that's one you might want to take more of. The best way to get vitamins and minerals, though, is in your diet, so really working to have a balanced and healthy diet is much better than taking supplements. Good luck! ...Read more
