How some of you can possibly take 200mg of B6 - that is 100 tablets. Or do you take them in some other form?

10 mg = 500% of recommended daily intake...

so 2 mg should be used daily,

taking 200 mg is like... 10000% of what is recommended... That would be like poisoning yourself...

Mine come in 100 MGs per tablet, is it still dangerous? Sometimes I take two.

At home we got some B-complex with 5120% recommended...

I think it won't harm if you'd do it once in a period of x-time... just not to often tounge2

Are you guys serious? GODDESS!
I have to take two pills of B Complex every day because my body is too acid (yes, that's exactly what I wrote, and no, I'm not way too acid, just a tiny little bit, but it makes a hell of a difference when you are a living creature).

Are you seriously taking 2 a day... o_0 That could be harmful over a long period of time I think, well, if that's what you got subcribed, I guess the doctor know's what he's doing? =\

Bear in mind that brazilian medicine is mild compared to drugs sold everywhere else.

I find that a small amount of B6 before sleep increases the vividity of my dreams. By "small amount" I mean 20 milligrams. Most supplemental B6s are 50+ milligrams.

B6 is not dangerous. It is "neurotoxic" if you take insanely high amounts daily. However, in the same way WATER is neurotoxic. So, basically, anything can be made dangerous. That doesn't mean it is when used properly.

I still dont know where you find those tablets with 50mg of B6 or even more. I have checked today in the supermarket and the maximum I could find was 9mg.

You can get these in the supermarket here in Australia (100mg tablets):

http://www.epharmacy.com.au/product.asp?id=21109&pnam e=Natures+Own+0230+Vitamin+B6+100mg+Tablets+60

I was taking two of these a day until they ran out (really helped with my PMS lach2 ) I found when I started taking these my dreams were way more vivid than normal, and I was recalling more dreams. But as time progressed the vividness and recall came down to an almost above normal level. I believe I only had two LDs in the period I was taking them... which is about normal for me. (over 30 days)

I also noticed that my left arm/hand were becoming a bit tingly/pins and needlesish which wasn't painful but more irritating. But I think this is now coming down too now that I have stoped taking them.

Are you joking? I have a hard time finding B6 supplements under 50mg. Where do you live?

By the way, don't take a massive dose of B6 before you lie down. You might not be able to sleep.

Wow.

For the last few weeks my dream recall has been decent, I had no complaints.

But last night was intense. I took one B complex, and another B6 before heading to bed. It seemed like whenever I would drift to sleep, even for a minute, I'd have long, detailed dreams that would not fade.

I recomend B6 to everyone having trouble recalling their dreams.

How much do you take on average? 25mg seems to be the nice medium for me. Other people seem to be more tolerant. I'm curious.
