High B6 levels
We take a b complex 6 months on, 6 months off. The other option would be to take all the B's separately. There are 17, so no thanks, not me. We do our B12 via shot, since it tends to act like iron, not a B.
You could also do your B complex 30 days on, 30 days off or 7 days on/off, whatever your pill schedule works?
Generally I'd say we DO run high in B6, if we've got enough B1. When I suggest a plan, it's 1 B complex and a single B1. That poufs up the B1 without poufing up the B6 so much.

P.S. My year + long absence has NOTHING to do with my WLS, or my type of WLS. See my profile.
Needless to say, I'm looking for a different WL doc. I spent 5 months in hell thinking I had some incurable disease when all it was was too much B6. I was taking Opitsource vitamins and a B complex liquid. I've since stopped the B complex.

Wow! This post made me the happiest I have been in a long time! I am only 26 and I've been diagnosed with ALS.
A lot of what I have is unlike ALS but I do have similar symptoms. So here's the best part:
My B6 level is 358, normal range is 20 -125
My B12 level is >1500 (off the chart), normal range is 180 - 914
So, I cut out all B vitamins and consumed twice as much water until I was tested 6 weeks down the road.
My B6 level was 230, and B12 was still off the chart.
But, I have slowed down the twitching and progression of the "ALS"
So, I believe it is all B related and I would really like to talk with you more about it if you're ok with it?
