Biotin?
About This Group:

Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin that can result in nerve damage when too much is taken in the form of supplements. B6 is found naturally in most grains such as flax and wheat. Many vitamin supplements and diet pills also contain more than the daily requirements of vitamin B6. B6 toxicity, also known as B6 overdose, is rare and most doctors are unfamiliar with it. It's becoming more common as manufacturers are adding B6 supplements to many vitamins and fortifying cereals. Symptoms commonly include a feeling of pins and needles, like nails being driven into you, generally in your hands and feet or anywhere else in your body where you've sustained nerve damage in the past. However, instead of pain, symptoms may include numbness. Either is refered to as neuropathy. Anytime you eat foods with certain forms of vitamin B in them (B1, B3, B6), your symptoms worsen for many hours. B6 toxicity is usually reversible by avoiding foods with vitamin B in them for 6 months to 3 years.

Biotin?

Has anyone tried biotin (vitamin B7) to treat vitamin b6 toxicity?   Some of the symptoms of B6 toxicity are the same as the symptoms of biotin deficiency... tingling, fatigue, etc.

My feeling is that some of us may have developed imbalances in our B vits but it's really hard to tell if that's true as the tests for B vitamins are so unreliable.

In the UK some places don't even test your B6 levels.
