Any truth to the theory that vitamin B6 helps with chemotherapy-induced neuropathy? —Name withheld on request

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is a B vitamin known to be important for nerve health. In addition, it can help maintain proper functioning of the nervous system because it encourages normal nerve cell communication. Dietary sources of this vitamin include potatoes, bananas, sunflower seeds, lima beans, peanut butter, salmon, and chicken. According to the Mayo Clinic, vitamin B6 injections and vitamin B1/B6 injections can be used to reduce the risk and aid with the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. —Abimbola Farinde, PharmD, MS, BCPP, CGP, LCDC, PM/PRC, FASCP, FACA, FNAP, Rsci, ARSPharmS
