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
Not a problem: I presume that this is because you are ingesting a large amount of b6, probably through supplements but perhaps via diet. B6 is not hazardous unless you take large amounts for a long time, generally 250 mg/day or more, or it may cause neuropathy. High levels just mean you have more than most people but is not dangerous. ...Read more
