Sub-lingual: While waiting to find a new doctor for B12 shots prescription, you may be able to get replacement B12 through sub-lingual B12, available over the counter. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs.
