Can You Take Vitamin B12 With A Multivitamin
My blood results showed high vitamin B12 level of 1125 with the range of 200-950. Should I be concerned? I do take high level of B12 as multivitamins.
I take a multivitamin everyday. Can I take vitamin B12 separately as I have a deficiency (175). Also may I take a separate vit c supplement?
Yes: Ester c 500 mg once or twice daily would be a good dose. ...Read more
Multivitamin has 100% daily vitamin B12 (6 mcg) and B6 (2 mg), and 50 mg magnesium. Can I still take b-complex drops and slowmag (magnesium chloride)?
Yes: The amounts that are in your multivitamin, so it is safe to take an additional b-complex and magnesium chloride. The question really should be if you need to take these. There are certain conditions for which it is a good idea to take a multivitamin or even higher dose vitamins/minerals/other supplement, but many people don't need to take anything additional over a healthy diet. ...Read more
My doctor told me that I have a high red blood cell count and high levels of vitamin b12, I don't take any multivitamins. What can this mean?
It depends...: This depends on the cause of the deficiency. If it's due to a lack of B12 in your diet (b12 is primarily found in animal-derived foods) then taking a multivit. With B12 will help. However, many cases of B12 deficiency are caused by difficulty absorbing it, a condition called pernicious anemia. In that case, oral B12 won't help & you need injections &/or sublingual b12, ideally as methylcobalamin. ...Read more
Not likely unless...:
I don't know why you are not having periods but b6 is unlikely to help unless you have high prolactin levels. B6 may reduce high prolactin. Other supplements may help too but I advise a thorough evaluation, including thorough thyroid testing. See

You don't say which medication but it is safe to take B12 with all medications, but it should not be taken at the same time as tetracycline (take at least an hour apart). Many medications reduce absorption & thus increase our need for B12.
I advise sublingual or chewable methylcobalamin.

Yes: If in pill form you may not be able to absorb it (often the case) that's why we have sublingual and intramuscular forms. ...Read more

B12 is safe:
Any amount of b 12 is safe since excess is eliminated-but more than contained in a prenatal vitamin is wasted
some iron is advisable and again any amount is safe since only a small portion is absorbed. A practical dose for most patients is the usual prenatal vitamin once daily and one additional iron pill after a later meal. ...Read more
Sure you can: What is all of that firepower supposed to do for you? Was also wondering if you think your dietary habits & exercise program are as good as they could be? How about smoking, drinking, sleep habits, & family time? Cuz optimizing those would likely cost you 1/10 the amount of what a GNC store will charge you & it will be 10 times better than what they can ever provide for you. I'm just sayin ...Read more
My age 26, I have vitamin B12 deficiency, I was adviced to take methycobal tablets, are they fine?
Reason for low B12?: Age 26 to have B12 deficiency? Have you investigated the reason? That, to me, is just as important a question to ask as the treatment. Do you have celiac disease, crohn's, severe gastritis, gastric ulcer disease? Methylcobal is fine. I'm an injector biased type of doc but very potent oral forms are said to be equivalent. Http://www.

Can I take my usual vitamin B12 supplement with 10mg of methadone? Any other foods beside grapefruit I should avoid with the methadone?
I'm considering a vegan diet, but I'm concerned about getting enough vitamin b12. How can I get some natural b12? I'd rather not take pills.
I am 22.My vitamin b12=76.Vitamin d=10.I am taking methylcobalmin 750 mg daily. And vit d tablets too. Do I need to take vit B12 injections too?
Wow, pretty low levels. I imagine you're taking 750 mcg daily, not mg. Increase to 1000 mcg 2x/day and chew the tablets- see http://bit. Ly/1cbhjvn
some people will be able to get adequate B12 this way while others will need injections, depending on their ability to absorb b12-if levels not higher in a month get shots.
For d, with levels that low try 10, 000 iu of d3/day: see http://bit. Ly/1gnxnk0. ...Read more
My vitamin B12 is 763 and it's suppose to be from 198-615. Is this bad and what does this mean? 24 y/o female. I don't take any supplements/vitamins.
That's fine: Reference ranges are set to reflect where most healthy people fall. Some folks have extra B12-carrying protein and hence a higher B12 level in the blood, or you might have recently taken some B12 perhaps without knowing it. If you are otherwise well and your basic labwork isn't otherwise WAY off, this is never a problem. ...Read more
Hi im vitamin B12 def. I get injections for it. Is it ok for me to take centrum for all my other vitamins the chemist said it was fine. Happy new year?
Your chemist is: Correct. There is so little B12 (and many of the other ingredients) in Centrum and other over the counter multivitamins, that it won't make a significant difference. Peace and good health. ...Read more
A person is havig lucoderma. So should he take injections twice a weak of vitamin B12 as it is insuffecient in his body? . He is a vegetarian. Male 21 yr
Whoa: Something is wrong here. All vegetarians need to supplement with vitamin B12, but it's best done orally unless you cannot absorb the stuff that way. B12 shots twice a week is overkill; once a month is probably fine. Leukoderma is often vitiligo, or sometimes tinea versicolor or something else; a proper diagnosis needs to be made. And vitiligo can run with pernicious anemia. Needs to be sorted out. ...Read more
Sublingual B 12: For convenience, sublingual b 12 is the best choice. Oral b 12 has to travel through the GI system and most of it is destroyed. If you take the kind that melts under your tongue it will go directly into your blood stream and will you absorb most of it. Peace and good health. Helpful for vegetarians, low energy, more. ...Read more
