B-6 Question!

Trixie called back and I'm cleared for 50mg today.  Yee Haw!  Dr. Sti.gen wants me to keep taking the Fertile CM and vitamin B-6 and get the P+7 blood draw.  Fertile CM and the blood draw I can do, however I'm hard pressed to find a high enough dose of B-6.  My local health food store only has 100mg and I don't think they are sustained release.

Does anyone have an online supplier for 500mg of B-6?  Even though it did nothing for me in the past, I want to try and be compliant this time.

    I get a stomach ache from it, but I'm trying to take it anyway. :) TCIE said she hadn't heard of other people getting stomach aches, so I'm curious to know if anyone else does!

  3. Hi!

    I sent my message without finishing it. Kubats can send it to your house and I found them to be highly efficient and when comparing prices quite OK. The bottle had a lot of pills so it might be good to compare among brands.

    Regarding side effects. I had hand pain. B6 in very high doses can give some people nerve pain. In my case 500 mgs did it, not a high dose, but in people that are sensitive it might do the trick. Its documented, but rare.

    With less 300 mg I was OK. What truly helped me in terms of mucus was Fertile CM, tons of water and Mucinex. Vit B6 not so much.

    Still I have seen the charts of people and the effects of Vit B6 can be dramatic.

    I had not heard of stomach ache.

  4. I got my B6 from a compounding pharmacy in my neighbourhood. I hated it!!! I had the strangest side effect: hot hands and feet!!! I had to stop taking it 'cos I was so uncomfortable! Good luck at finding a source for it!

  5. This is not helpful at all, but for some reason the only thing I can think of right now is, "Like a B-6 like a B-6"...you know, like that one song? Hehe.
