Pyridoxine Dosage

Pyridoxine Dosing for Specific Uses

For treating specific conditions (such as a pyridoxine deficiency), much higher doses are often recommended. If you have a documented pyridoxine deficiency, follow your healthcare provider's recommendations for your dosage (and the type of pyridoxine to use). Recommended dosages can vary widely, depending on numerous factors.
 
If you are using pyridoxine to self-treat any condition (such as premenstrual syndrome or infertility), make sure not to exceed the Tolerable Upper Intake Level for your age group. Also, be sure to watch for any signs of pyridoxine toxicity, especially if you take doses higher than the RDA.
 

General Information on Dosing With Pyridoxine

Some considerations for people taking pyridoxine include:
 
  • Non-prescription pyridoxine products are classified as dietary supplements, not drugs. Therefore, they are subject to less rigorous manufacturing standards, compared to drugs. When choosing any supplement, it is important to choose a high-quality product from a trustworthy manufacturer. Your pharmacist is a good resource for information about which manufacturers are most reputable.
     
  • Never exceed the amount recommended on the supplement label unless your healthcare provider specifically recommends that you do so.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or pyridoxine dosing in general, please talk with your healthcare provider.
