3 doctors agree

In brief: Maybe

Vitamin b 6 has been associated with decreasing the effectiveness of levodopa-carbidopa.
I would recommend having your vitamin levels checked (there is a break down for all b) and see if you need it. Then your physician can better guide you. You can take B12 since there has not been a documented interaction and it is important for brain health.
