    I started taking a B Complex about a week ago. Now I have an all-over body itch, no rash. I know I could take each B separately to figure out which one is bothering me. But you guys are so smart I thought I would just see if anyone here has had this reaction to a certain B vitamin. Thanks

    Could be an allergy to one of the fillers, not actually a reaction to one of the active ingredients. What brand is it?

    There is enough niacin to cause a niacin flush. But you would likely have red skin too. I get it on my arms and legs. It would last about an hour after taking the pill. It also produces tingling hands and maybe feet.

    It has quite a bit of B6 which could cause problems if you have CBS. I'm not sure what reaction it would cause though, as I've never exceeded 20mg or so of B6.

    The fillers look like standard stuff, but I guess you never know.
