    Vitamin B Complex Dose

    I've just started trying B complex 100, 2 x 50 prolonged released. I was using a normal one a day 100% RDA before, but reading more on the subject I realised that wasn't a high enough dose.

    What dosages are you taking and is it a good idea to stay with 100 or should I cut down to 50 after a few weeks?

    I read that at a high does you can have side effects, numb/tingly fingers anyone on a high dose had those symptoms?

    Also how quickly do they start working, I assume fairly quickly but not sure.

    I take a 50mg complex once a day in the morning. I've not had any problems with this except bright yellow wee until lunch time!!

    You need to be taking a strong 50-100 mg Vitamin B complex supplement in the morning as it can lead to insomnia as it releases energy.

    Don't be alarmed but it may turn your urine bright yellow.

    If you are a smoker then you need to be taking Vitamin C at the same time.

    Vitamin B Complex is commonly available at all chemist/health shops or a reputable online site is

    I assumed 50's or 100's meant exactly that and there wouldn't be any strong version.

    The ones I bought, Health Aid Super Strong B50 Prolonged Release, are 50's and contain B1 3571 %RDA, B2 3125, B3 278, B6 2500, B12 100, Pantotholic Acid 833 plus a few other bits like Biotin, iron (just 5mg), Choline, Inositol and PABA.

    Thanks for the comment regarding insomnia, I had planned to start taking one first thing, one last thing for an even split, but I'll scap that idea now!

    I cant tell you the exact figures but I take a multi vitamin (doesnt seem to do much)

    and then I take a Berrocca performace (vit B suplement in morning) and it really helps.

    So basically I take double the dose.

    I think its a combo of eveything and then getting out and about and forcing yourself like I did today.
