Neuropathy Support Formula Dangers and Side Effects
There’s no such thing as a medication or a supplement that that causes absolutely no side effects no matter what, but the Neuropathy Support Formula is probably the safest supplement you can get if you have been diagnosed with neuropathy. Clinical trials reveal that there were been no adverse effects even when patients took the formula in dosages far greater than recommended.
Nonetheless, it’s better to play it safe. Here are some unlikely but still theoretically possible dangers and side effects if you take too much of the Neuropathy Support Formula:
Benfotiamine side effects
The formula contains benfotiamine, which effectively delivers vitamin B to the parts of your body where there’s nerve damage. It’s less toxic than thiamine, which is sometimes used for the same purpose.
While not much is known as to what side effects can present themselves when benfotiamine is taken for an extended period of time, no danger has so far been discovered. However, a few experts hypothesize that it is theoretically possible that you can have an upset stomach and perhaps even a lower blood pressure. These may be possible if you take too much for a very long time.
Methylcobalamine side effects
The formula contains Methylcobalamine, which boosts protein synthesis and help regenerate your damaged nerve cells. Taking excessive amounts of Methylcobalamine can cause some side effects, however. Most of the time though the side effects of Methylcobalamine are mild in the rare times when they do occur.
Diarrhea and abdominal bloating have been reported due to Methylcobalamine, but in these cases patients admit to taking excessive amounts. Other symptoms and side effects include headaches or even a low-grade fever. Even rashes have been reported in connection with Methylcobalamine, but these reports are often connected with the use of lotions containing Methylcobalamine rather than oral supplements.
It’s possible that you may have an allergic reaction to some of the ingredients in the formula. The list of ingredients includes:
- Alpha Lipoic Acid
- Feverfew Extract
- Oat Straw Extract
- Passion Flower
- Skullcap Extract
- Vitamin B1 (Benfotiamine)
- Vitamin B2
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamine)
- Vitamin D
Allergic reactions may (in theory) include a runny nose, itching, and headaches. An allergic reaction to vitamins is extremely rare, however, since your body needs vitamins in order to function properly. It’s also possible that you are allergic to one of the extracts although that too is quite rare.
Your doctor can test you for a suspected allergy by administering some tests. With a blood test, the doctor gives you a small amorist of the suspected allergen and then draws your blood to check for IgE antibody levels. A skin patch test can also be taken, when a small amount of the substance is injected under your skin.
What all these mean is that the Neuropathy Support Formula may not be in theory absolutely safe, but it’s the nearest thing to a risk-free supplement you can get. Just make sure you follow the recommended dosages, and you’ll be fine. Taking too much may not be dangerous, but why risk it?
