.: B12 injection should not cause sleepiness or tiredness. It is not a common side effect.
Advise: B12 is a vitamin and not a lipotropic.
B12 is not fda approved as a lipotropic and it does not work. Would advise you not to try it as a lipotropic medication.

B 12: Very unusual to require vitamin b-12 injections without a full evaluation showing deficiency and the reason for it. It is very unlikely, however, to be making you feel tired and sleepy.
