In an attempt and on the recommendation of my np, I am going to start taking B vitamins (liquid, under the tongue).
I had heard that niacin was hard on the liver, when I mentioned this to her she said "I haven't heard that"....
Anyway, I checked and found that someone with liver disease (I have mild inflamation and no fibrosis) should not take over 35 mgs. of niacin per day. This stuff I bought at the drug store has 25 mgs. of niacin. Is is all they had , but I am thinking about returning it.
IYO - is it safe for me to take this or should I return and look for plain ol B12 liquid.
Hi my name is Tonimarie I am new to the forum,my hubby just started the Pegasus treatment on friday, so I am always glad to have information that doesnt come from the doctor but real people experiences!
OMG - where did you find that information?? My super duper heavy duty B-complex has got 80mg niacin . The naturopath I went to said the B-complex was only toxic in mega higher doses than that for a longer time, but now you have me concerned; he's aware of my liver disease (I now think I'll get another opinion or opt for a lower dose B-omplex)
I think for bloods you need the B6 as well as the B12 - I used the B12 drops prior to tx but now just take the B-complex (and not every day because there is B in my 'no iron' multi-vitamin also)
