In my practice, vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) therapy (100 to 200 mg daily for 12 weeks) has proved curative for a large percentage of patients having carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Laboratory determination of the vitamin B6 status has been useful in diagnosing deficiency and in making decisions relative to surgery. This paper directs particular attention to prevention of CTS during pregnancy and discusses changes in symptoms during the course of treatment of CTS with vitamin B6.
