Pyridoxine is a vitamin that helps keep nerves, skin, red blood cells, and mucous membranes healthy. Most people who have a normal diet do not need extra pyridoxine (vitamin B6). However, vitamin B6 is used to treat or prevent a lack of body vitamin B6, to treat a certain blood problem (sideroblastic anemia), to prevent a certain nerve problem (peripheral neuropathy) caused by certain drugs (e.g. isoniazid, penicillamine), to prevent seizures from a certain medication (cycloserine), or to treat seizures in newborn infants who are not responsive to the usual medications.
