Vitamin B12/B6 supplements

Postby janmac » Sun Mar 25, 2018 3:50 pm

Can you tell me if its OK for my mum to take these to help with fatigue? She has decided against any treatment as she is so weak and frail and not much appetite, would these help?

Thanks Jan

Hey Janmac,

Any vitamin regime I think would help and not cause your mum any problems. Steroids of some sort could also give a bit of a boost but mum would need to see her Dr for these.

Be careful if you get high doses - I think B6 can cause a flush if I recall (if it is in high doses). It is really worrying when it happens but harmless.
