B- complex

Recommended Posts

Well I was told by a friend that it would help out with anxiety yet Ive read several stories on the net that it causes panic attacks! What the heck is the truth? Anyone take vitamin b complex? Looking for solid answer.

B Complex, according to Google, is stimulatory, which can indeed lead to anxiety and panic attacks. Much like other stimulants, such as caffeine and nicotine.

I don't take B complex, but I did take B-12 and flaxseed for a time at the advice of one of my psychiatrists, who recommended them for anxiety and depression. They were a nice complement to my antidepressant and I did feel some relief.

I have panic disorder and take a B complex every other day. It has never caused me to have a panic attack, but does help lower my anxiety.
