Answers to Questions: 1. What are some of the Vitamin B complex available in the market today? Some of the Vitamin B complex available in the market today are Benutrex®, Capsugen®, Hybutin®, Meganerv®, Neurobion®, Polynerv®, Vitagen®, Supraneuron®, etc.

2. Why do you think skin testing is done before admixtures? I think skin testing is done before admixtures in order to detect if the patient has an underlying allergy to a certain drug or admixture of drugs. 3. What are some of the manifestations of skin allergy to vitamin B complex? Some of the manifestations of skin allergy to vitamin B complex are skin rash, hives, or itchy or swollen skin. I. Conclusion: The B vitamins are eight water-soluble vitamins that play important roles in cell metabolism. B vitamins are necessary in order to support and increase the rate of metabolism, maintain healthy skin and muscle tone, enhance immune and nervous system function, promote cell growth and division and reduces the risk of pancreatic cancer. B-vitamins are needed in order to treat various b-vitamin deficiencies like beriberi, ariboflavinosis, pellagra, macrocytic anemia and peripheral neuropathy. Before the administration of vitamin B complex intravenously, a skin test must be conduction. The appearance of skin rashes, redness and swelling of the skin indicates that the patient is allergic to vitamin Bcomplex.
