I'm @ 5 -6 weeks pregnant and just took a 100mg B6 supplement for morning sickness. I also took my prenantal a few hours later. Is this dosage going to have any harmful effects? I've read that it is too grate to take at one time.
Consult your doctor. It has been confirmed that 200mg a day of Vitamin B6 is not harmful to the baby. However, though it is not harmful to take that much in one dose, it is more effective in divided doses of 50mg, 3 to 4 times per day.
