    Allergic reaction to vitamin b complex?
    Sgottsc posted:
    Has anyone ever had an allergic reaction to vitamin B Complex? I started taking in on Monday before I took it I opened the bottle and took a whif of it, I needed to see how bad it smelled prior to taking it. The next day my eyes were puffy and the skin red around them. The two weeks prior I was having broncial allergies due to the damp and wet weather. I took Zyrtac D for that and had stopped the allergy pill 4 days before taking the vitamin. Not certain if it is from either the previous allergies or the new vitamin i started taking. Please let me know if you have any insight.
    Thanks much!!
