Should I let my doctor know I take vitamin B6?

Talk to your doctor before taking vitamin B6, and let him or her know about other supplements and medications you may take. Vitamin B6 can interact with some medications, such as levodopa, altretamine, Dilantin, phenobarbital and Cordarone. Your doctor will advise you on whether you should take B6 along with these or other medications. Your doctor also needs to know if you're pregnant, plan to become pregnant or are breastfeeding.
