In brief: VITAMIN B6
Pyridoxine is vitamin b6, which is one of vitamin b group.
It is an important cofactor that help certain enzymes in our brain that are needed for the brain function. Pyridoxine deficiency can cause a refractory seizure in a neonate and only pyridoxine supplement can stop that kind of seizures. Also b6 is important to help peripheral nerves function.

In brief: More is not better
Although i agree with dr homsi, excess pyridoxine can lead to an often painful sensory neuropathy which can be permanent.
Fortunately most patients recover if vitamin b6 intake is reduced to 3 mg per day or less. Incidentally i've had one patient with b6 toxicity induced headaches.
