Overdosage
Signs and Symptoms of Overdosage: The B-complex vitamins (Vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12, and Nicotinamide) are relatively non-toxic.
However, long term (i.e., two months or longer) administration of large (megadose) dosages (e.g., usually 2 grams or more daily) of vitamin B6 can cause neurological symptoms manifested as paresthesia (more noticeable at night and limited to the extremities), bone pains, hyperesthesia (described as burning, pricking, stinging, or itching), muscle weakness, fasciculation (described as twitching, restlessness or fidgeting), and numbness on the limbs and face.
Vitamin A: Chronic daily vitamin A intakes in excess of 10,000 IU or weekly intakes in excess of 25,000 IU have resulted in hypervitaminosis A.
Excessive vitamin A intake (more than 10,000 IU daily) is hazardous when taken during the first and second trimesters of pregnancy. Excessive vitamin A intake during pregnancy may lead to birth defects such as cleft palate, heart abnormalities and brain malformations, e.g., hydrocephalus and microcephaly (baby with a very small head).
Iron: Acute iron overdosage (e.g., intake of ≥1,500 mg elemental iron for a 50 kg adult) can be divided into four stages: Stage I: Occurs up to six hours after ingestion, the principal symptoms are vomiting and diarrhea. Other symptoms include hypotension (low blood pressure), tachycardia (rapid heartbeat) and central nervous system (CNS) depression ranging from lethargy (sleepiness) to coma (state of unconsciousness).
Stage II: May occur 6 to 24 hours after ingestion and is characterized by a temporary remission or signs of overdosage are decreased.
Stage III: Gastrointestinal symptoms recur accompanied by shock, metabolic acidosis (increased acid in the blood), coma, hepatic necrosis (death of liver tissue), jaundice (yellowish color of the skin, eyes and other tissues), hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), kidney failure, and pulmonary edema (fluid in the lungs).
Stage IV: Occurs several weeks after ingestion and is characterized by gastrointestinal obstruction (blockage) and liver damage.
If the patient has taken more than the recommended dosage, consult a doctor.
