B1 Tyamine - how much to start?


I ordered 500mg B1 hcl from Vitacost. I am also taking Carbidopa/levodopa 25/100 the times a day. I also take a small amount of L-dopa (1/8 tsp) from NutriVita. I was wondering, how much B1 should I start taking? Don’t want to OD on too many things. I was diagnosed in April.

Thank you

Thiamine (vitamin B1) 500 mg daily is fine if you're level is low. I would suggest a B-Complex so that you can take advantage of B12 for energy and Neurological health, B9(folic acid) and other B vitamins good for Neuro health.
