Have you heard of these multi vitamins called, ultra preventive III. I am super wary to purchase. So many things do not help.

Hi @amberheilman — I have not heard of the vitamins but I would be super wary also. One thing stands out to me is the vitamin B6 in the supplement is 50 mg dosage or 2500% of daily allowance. I have no medical training or background but have done some research into B6 because it is one of those vitamins that can cause toxicity and actually make neuropathy worse.
Here are some research links I've found….
VITAMIN B6 TOXICITY
B Vitamins for Neuropathy and Neuropathic Pain
B6 section it explains — too much or too little gives neuropathy
NIH – Nutritional Neuropathies
Vitamin B6 Toxicity Revisited: A Case of Reversible Pyridoxine-associated Neuropathy and Disequilibrium. (P4.021)
