Question b6 and its side effects?

hi

I have been thinking about taking vitamin b6 because I take medication for seizures. I heard that b6 is supposed to be good for helping take away any side effects that the meds might cause. What I really want to know is can b6 cause weight gain? I know everyone says to ask my doctors about this but I figure it's better to ask someone that is accuatlly taking this med and is experiencing the side effects first hand. Who's not trying to get the answers from a book, I hope I will be able to get some feedback on this thank you!

Re: b6 and its side effects?

More than likely it's the seizure meds causing weight gain and not the Vitamin B6. How much B6 are you taking and what seizure meds?

Re: b6 and its side effects?

Hi Rudiraven

Thank you for your quick reply. I have been told that my seizure meds. can be a big cause of any weight gain that I may have I'm currently taking lamictal 150mg twice a day, vimpat 100mg twice a day, zonagram 150mg at night time only, and serquel 250mg at night time only. I haven't yet started taking the b6 vitamin I wanted to get some input on this matter before I started taking it, because I don't want to add anymore weight on if it can be avoided. Like I said I really do appreciate your feedback, God Bless!
