Is taking B Maxi Complex safe while on kidney dialysis?

Yes, please - my brother is on in-home Dialysis due to complications with his Diabetes. And, he is on lots of medications. He privately buys B Maxi Complex. He is 82-years old. Does the B Maxi Complex do him any good? A couple of his Hospice nurses have indicated the Ocular Protect he takes every day is not really something he can benefit from at his age and condition. So, in an effort to take him off unnecessary pills/supplements, I would like to know if the B Maxi Complex is really doing him any good. Thank you for your kind response.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Maxi-B is a multivitamin tablets and no harm in taking this while undergoing dialysis or any other procedure. It won’t interact with your routine drugs and doesn’t cause any adverse drug reactions. It’s just an vitamin supplement and does not provide any beneficial effects for his disease and it is not mandatory to take this tablet. He can take healthy diets rich in fruits and vegetables instead of supplements like Maxi-B.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
