Be sure to read labels, folks. Not all B-complex sublingual liquids or even B-complex tablets have B1 (thiamine) in them. If your doctor recommended taking a B-complex - MAKE SURE it has B1 (thiamine) in it or add a separate B1 into your supplements.
B1 deficiencies are nasty - and can lead to beri beri which can involve malnutrition (even though you are eating/protein supplements, etc), heart attacks, strokes. Best thing to do is to READ THE LABEL. See what is in your complex. Compare. I looked online and Puritan's Pride and Nature's Bounty B-complex sublingual liquids do NOT contain thiamine. I do my B complex in capsule form (many brands out there). Best wishes, Kathy
I wish doctors would all be on the same basic page on things. Folks are all over the map on recommendations. We were told to take a B complex right after surgery. If I don't take it for a couple of days (we ran out and were waiting on a shipment)... I get some neuropathy in my toes (tingles). You can ask your nut or surgeon. Kathy
Kathy I soooooooooooooooo agree with you... Took me forever to find a B-Complex that: 1. Wasn't time released 2. Contained B-1 3. Contained ENOUGH B-1 I am to take 200mg of B-1 daily, finally found it in my B-complex... It took hubby and I hours finding one that would work...
Thanks for the heads up... Remember too when taking this that your PeePee becomes very bright yellow, so don't be alarmed thinking your not drinking enough.. I know that after realizing that I had a B-1 deficency and starting this supplement I felt so much better.. Huggs Debbiie
I'm not doing a liquid, I do capsules. Much better then when we got our B complex from CVS and had to cut that sucker up. The taste was horrid.... LOL!
I do most vitamins in capsules. I got chest pains (esphogeal spasms) from pills! I added a vitamin per my doc and ended up in the ER. I'm a piece of work what can I say. Kathy
