Can I take vitamin B12 with my medication?

Can I take vitamin B12 with my medication?

Yes, however...: 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.
