    Vitamin B6 toxicity

    Iíve developed a neuropathy thought to be from B6 toxicity. B6 levels were three times the max of the normal range. After a thorough neuromuscular work up, this is the only identifiable possible cause. Gabapentin is the only thing that takes the edge off the pain. Opening the thread to alert everyone to this toxicity and to start discussion.

    Are you supplementing with B6?

    Yes, I was using a B complex. Plus, many supplements, bars, drinks, etc. contain B6.

    B6 being a water soluble vitamin is thought by many not to accumulate in the body. It does and can take a long time to clear. Neuropathy it causes can be permanent. Be careful with your intake. You only need @2 mg per day.

    I agree but its a water-soluble vitamin, I believe it's almost impossible to have too high a limit. Drink lots of water.

    The neurologist said it accumulates in the muscle and can take a year or more for neuropathy symptoms to resolve, if they resolve at all. Itís a serious toxity. Be advised.

    Energy drinks and 5 hour energy are loaded with B vitamins. Use sparingly, especially the 5 hour energy, and don’t supplement with B vitamins.

    This is what I found on Vitamin B6 or P-5-P. Keep your doses low as it can potentially overdrive the CBS pathway and result in excessive sulfite level which is not good thing. The data is unclear what if any effect CBS+ has on homocysteine levels. Sulfate test strips will quantify that for you if you are interested in pursuing that pathway further.
