Pyridoxine is a relatively safe vitamin, especially if taken at normal doses. However, if you think you are experiencing pyridoxine side effects, please let your healthcare provider know. Also, let him or her know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be related to pyridoxine, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
