56 year-old woman notices radicular pain after taking vitamin B6 supplement for three years.....?

56 year-old woman notices radicular pain after taking vitamin B6 supplement for three years.....?

B6 toxicity is well recognized: There are a few questions that need to be asked in this case. Exactly how much B6 was the patient taking? According to recommended standards 200mg daily is the limit. Toxicity is thought to occur at levels of 1000mg. Daily and above though much lower have been reported on rare occasions (100-300mg). Secondly, what exactly was the quality of her pain? Described symptoms of neural toxicity involves sensory neuropathy described mainly as burning dysesthesias and numbness. The case talks about a RADICULOPATHY. That is typically not the same type of pain as we find in chemical toxicities. Pain in the feet could very well be dysesthesias but the history could be a bit more specific there in order to attach more positive points for B6 sequelae.

Hello.: Hello. People often take vitamin c separately if they are looking to take really high doses. However the body tend to urinate out the excess. Multiple vitamins should contain an adequate amount of vitamin c. By taking one pill it could be less expensive in the long run (vice a series of pills) and less complicated. Usually vitamins are helpful if you have a deficiency or you don't get an adequate dietary intake, if you fall into one of those two categories it may help. It should not cause problems wtih sleep. ...Read more
