Virtually nontoxic: At any dose. I do not believe that you will find very much written on the toxic effects of B12 although I have had a couple of patients who took something on the order of 10x what I had prescribed them was already in the 10,000IU range so they were taking about 100,000IU daily for several weeks and the patient developed diarrhea. When he stopped that resident, within several days diarrhea stopped
