Pyridoxine (vitamin B6) is a co-factor in many enzymatic pathways involved in amino acid metabolism: the main biologically active form is pyridoxal 5-phosphate. Pyridoxine has been used as an antidote in acute intoxications, including isoniazid overdose, Gyromitra mushroom or false morrel (monomethylhydrazine) poisoning and hydrazine exposure. It is also recommended as a co-factor to improve the conversion of glyoxylic acid into glycine in ethylene glycol poisoning. Other indications are… Expand
Pyridoxine for the treatment of isoniazid‐induced seizures in intentional ingestions: The experience of a national poison center
TLDR
It is suggested that patients with large‐dose intentional ingestions have a substantial risk of multiple seizures that can be treated successfully with 1 g of pyridoxine intravenously or 1 gofinoxine per gram of isoniazid ingestion. Expand
Isoniazid Toxicity
Pharmacokinetic characteristics of INH are presented. Adverse effects and toxicity caused by INH has been reviewed under the headings of neuropathy and seizures, hepatotoxicity, rhabdomyolysis,Expand
Quantification of the B6 vitamers in human plasma and urine in a study with pyridoxamine as an oral supplement; pyridoxamine as an alternative for pyridoxine.
TLDR
High plasma levels of PM after oral PM supplementation are shown and the B6 vitamer PM is an interesting supplement as an inhibitor of harmful processes in metabolic diseases and for the treatment of vitamin B6 deficiency. Expand
B6 and Bleeding: A Case Report of a Novel Vitamin Toxicity
TLDR
A first case of a patient with pyridox(am)ine-5-phosphate oxidase deficiency and mild hemophilia A, whose bleeding symptoms were exacerbated by the vitamin B6 therapy essential for his epileptic disorder is presented. Expand
The beneficial effect of metadoxine (pyridoxine-pyrrolidone-carboxylate) in the treatment of fatty liver diseases
TLDR
The abnormal accumulation of fat in parenchymal organs, including the liver, is called fatty transformation or steatosis, and it is not a genuine disease; in most cases it is associated with a noxious state or other pathologic process. Expand
Pyridoxal isonicotinoyl hydrazone inhibition of FXR is involved in the pathogenesis of isoniazid-induced liver injury.
TLDR
PIH inhibition of liver FXR function leading to bile acid accumulation in hepatocytes may be an early pathogenesis event in INH-induced liver injury. Expand
Antidotes to coumarins, isoniazid, methotrexate and thyroxine, toxins that work via metabolic processes.
TLDR
This review focuses on four examples, coumarin anticoagulants, isoniazid, methotrexate and thyroxine from the context of management of overdose as seen in acute general hospitals, where treatment dose is based on symptoms resulting from the overdose. Expand
Pyridoxine toxicity courtesy of your local health food store
Pyridoxine or vitamin B6 is a highly water-soluble vitamin that plays an important part in the functioning of many enzymes, especially those involved in amino acid metabolism. A normal adult willExpand
Non-P450 aldehyde oxidizing enzymes: the aldehyde dehydrogenase superfamily.
TLDR
What is currently known about each member of the human ALDH superfamily, composed of NAD(P)+-dependent enzymes that catalyze aldehyde oxidation, is presented including the pathophysiological significance of these enzymes. Expand
Isoniazid poisoning: Pharmacokinetics and effect of hemodialysis in a massive ingestion
TLDR
A 20‐year‐old female migrant who presented with recurrent seizures after ingesting 25 g of isoniazid was treated with activated charcoal, repeated doses of midazolam for the seizures, and given multiple doses of pyridoxine, limited by availability. Expand

Vitamin B6 Safety Issues
TLDR
Preclinical and clinical data on pyridoxine neurotoxicity are updated to determine whether a more quantitative estimate of risk can be derived based on available data, and recent human and animal data showing lack of teratogenicity for pyrIDoxine are summarized. Expand
Depression of vitamin B6 levels due to theophylline.
TLDR
Pyridoxine supplementation resulted in higher averagePLP levels but did not prevent death in animals with profoundly low PLP levels, suggesting B6 deficiency may contribute to chronic theophylline toxicity; however, pyridOxine administration in the dosage used may not prevent toxicity. Expand
THE ROLE OF VITAMIN B6 IN THE TOXICITY OF HYDRAZINES *
  • H. Cornish
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
  • 1969
TLDR
It is suggested that hydrazine probably has a mode of action different from UDMH and MMH, and this suggestion correlates with the early reports that brain levels of y-amino-butyric acid (GABA) are depressed after U DMH treatment but apparently elevated after hydrazines treatment. Expand
Role of Pyridoxine in Oxalate Metabolism
TLDR
The role of pyridoxine in oxalate metabalism is discussed and the molecular mechanism(s) of hyperoxaluria in pyrIDoxine deficiency is illustrated using the results of the studies over the past several years. Expand
Potentiation of pyridoxine by depressants and anticonvulsants in the treatment of acute isoniazid intoxication in dogs.
TLDR
It is suggested that pyridoxine is the basic antidote for treatment of acute INH poisoning, and that the addition of an anticonvulsant or a CNS depressant to the therapy enhances effectiveness. Expand
Auto-immune complications of D-penicillamine--a possible result of zinc and magnesium depletion and of pyridoxine inactivation.

  • Journal of the American College of Nutrition
  • 1982
TLDR
Reports of myasthenia gravis--a disease with abnormalities of the thymus and of T-cells, as a side effect of penicillamine--suggest that zinc, magnesium, and pyridoxine might be the agents most likely to be protective. Expand
Evaluation of diazepam and pyridoxine as antidotes to isoniazid intoxication in rats and dogs.
TLDR
Combined administration of diazepam with pyridoxine protected against convulsions and death in rats and dogs and the two antidotes are clearly synergistic for controlling the manifestations of experimental INH overdose. Expand
Acute isoniazid intoxication: seizures, acidosis and coma.
TLDR
A case of acute overdose of INH is reported, followed by a review of the literature, which indicates that pyridoxine-therapy can be useful as well in cases of chronic ingestion of higher than therapeutic doses of InH. Expand
Pyridoxine as therapy in theophylline-induced seizures.
TLDR
Serum theophylline levels and plasma PLP levels showed significant negative correlation prior to pyridoxine infusion, suggesting that pyridine may partially reverse theophyLLine-induced central nervous system toxicity. Expand
Intravenous pyridoxine-induced metabolic acidosis.
TLDR
A transient increase in base deficit occurs after the infusion of 5 g of pyridoxine in normal volunteers, and this infusion would result in transient worsening of acidosis. Expand
