Is it safe to take 200mg vitamin B6 with isoniazid 300mg daily? The B6 was cheaper otc. I was prescribed 50mg vitamin B6 from my doctor originally.

Authorities advise not taking more than 100 mg, but 200 mg/day for months is the lowest amount proven to cause problems. Capsules with 50-100 mg of b6 are inexpensive & widely available at health food stores. You can take the 200 mg but buy a lower dose next. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Friend takes vitamin b6, b12, and folic acid on a daily basis, he says it prevents heart disease, stroke and mental depression. Is this true?

Not exactly but...: This depends on what you mean by overdose. I think of overdose as a single high dose causing harm, in which case taking a large single dose of b6 will not cause harm.
