Neurobion is a combination of three essential neurotropic vitamins (B1, B6
and B12) in high dosage. Vitamins B1, B6 and B12 are of special importance
for the metabolism in the peripheral and central nervous system. Their
effect on the regeneration of nerves has been shown in various
investigations using the vitamins individually and in combination.
Vitamin B, plays an important role in major metabolic processes. Vitamin B6
has an analgesic effect. Vitamin B12 ensures blood cell formation and
prevents degenerative processes of the nervous system. Both the individual
function and the beneficial biochemical links between the three vitamins
justify their combined use.
Neurobion is indicated for neurological and other disorders associated with
disturbance of metabolic functions influenced by B complex vitamins,
including diabetic polyneuropathy, alcoholic peripheral neuritis and post
Neurobion is also recommended for the treatment of neuritis and neuralgia of
the spinal nerves, especially facial paresis, cervical syndrome, low back

not known. In individual cases, high doses of vitamin B6, i.e. > 600 mg
daily, may inhibit the production of breast milk.
Hypersensitivity reactions to vitamin B1, such as sweating, tachycardia
(rapid heart beat), and skin reactions with itching and urticaria are very
Gastrointestinal complaints, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea or
abdominal pain may occur.
Please speak to your doctor, if such symptoms or other unwanted effects
The effect of L-dopa may be reduced when vitamin B6 is administered
Pyridoxine-antagonists, e.g. isoniazid (INH), cycloserin, penicillamin,
hydralazine: the efficacy of vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) may be decreased.
Loop diuretics, e.g. furosemide: In long-term use, the blood level of
thiamine may be reduced.
Dosage and administration
1 coated tablet three times daily to treat moderate cases, or to provide
interval and follow-up therapy for a course of injections.

with or after meals.The duration of the treatment is determined by the
Prolonged overdose of vitamin B6, i. e. for longer than 2 months and more
