Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service
Vitamin B6 or also called pyridoxine is a vitamin that functions for the health of the nervous system, prevents sideroblastic anemia and is able to reduce the symptoms of morning sickness in pregnant women.
Vitamin B6 is also useful for preventing side effects caused by anti-tuberculosis drugs, namely isoniazid.
Isoniazid is an anti-tuberculosis drug that has side effects including disorders of the nerves / peripheral neuropathy, impaired liver function, digestive disorders such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache and anemia.
Therefore, taking vitamin B6 supplements can reduce the risk of side effects of antituberculosis drugs. If not consumed, the risk of side effects against isoniazid is higher.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
