Vitamin B6 & Peripheral Neuropathy
I have taken a multi-vitamin regularly for about 18 months and now have significant peripheral neuropathy. I fear I will need to quit my job and be disabled, the pain is so great. Numbness in hands and feet with carpal tunnel syndrome. I am looking for people to share their stories of too much B6 - did this ever go away and if so, how long did it take?

Sorry to hear about your peripheral neuropathy. There are a variety of meds, for instance Neurontin (aka: gabapentin), which often provide great relief. Perhaps one of those may help.

Vitamin B6 toxicity requires a lot of effort. You'd have to be taking massive doses of B6 for months to get any kind of toxicity going. Unfortunately, some supplement manufacturers do put absurd amounts of B6 in their formulations. Fortunately, the effects of the toxicity are often reversible.
