    Precautions and Warnings

    May interfere with certain laboratory measurements
    Patients should not exceed recommended dose

    Parkinson's disease: use with caution in patients receiving levodopa alone as pyridoxine may antagonise its effect.

    Biotin may interfere with laboratory tests that are based on a biotin/streptavidin interaction. Falsely decreased or increased test results may occur. The risk of interference is higher in children and patients with renal impairment and this increases with higher doses. Where interference is suspected, alternative tests not susceptible to biotin interference should be used.

    Pregnancy and Lactation


    Vitamins are essential for human life. Preparations containing multiple vitamins are used in pregnant women.

    Doses in excess of those recommended should be avoided during pregnancy.


    Multivitamins can be used during breastfeeding if the mother is on a restricted diet or has malabsorption syndrome.

    Doses in excess of those recommended should be avoided during lactation.
