... With any medicine itís not really safe to take a huge amount of, because all of the side effects are much easier to get. I donít think though that you really have to worry about any long-term damage. Even with your hair, if it thinned from the B5, that should reverse itself. (2 replies)
... I am speculating here, but this is my opinion on what is happening to you based on years of reading about and taking vitamins. When you mega-dose on any water soluble vitamin (like C or the B's), your body will excrete the excess and gets conditioned to excreting the excess (even if you are not mega-dosing that day). This also results in your body eliminating the other B... (1 replies)

... What would it hurt to do the research, especially when you are doing something that could harm your body?! It can't hurt anything. It will take all of 5 minutes to do.

Hmmm, one of the... (20 replies)
Is B5 Safe??
Aug 23, 2003
