What causes reduced effectiveness of B complex pills?

Last month, I used to take b complex for 4-5 days consecutively, it worked great. After that, I stopped it and found another b complex claimed to have safer ingredients. Then I used it. But it doesn t work as good as the old one. During this time, I also took liver cleanse supplement that contains milk thistle. Then I stopped taking those two, and went back to my old b complex bottle again. It didn t seem to work as good as last time anymore. Can some ingredients counteract with each other?

Could you please mention the ingredients in details or list them?

Usually B complex do not contain any such ingredients which would interact with each other.While milk thistle is a liver supportive which would neither react with the B complex ingredients usually.

I would like to ask you if you are an alcoholic.
If yes,then taking B complex might take some time to work effectively provided you are having it in the appropriate dosage.

You can also go to your GP and clarify it by taking both the B complex samples you had earlier and the one you are having now.

Hope your query has been solved,
Please hit a thanks if i could help you.
Take care
