Would not advise: Most health experts would give their blessing to taking a multivitamin pill, but taking higher doses, and by injection, when there is no deficiency is not a good idea. There is the small risk associated with repeated injections as well as the chance of vitamin B12 toxicity. Symptoms include skin rashes, nausea, diarrhea and perhaps blood vessel narrowing.
