Why do you need it?: Why are you getting injections? Did a doctor test for deficiency? Are you vegan? If not, why are you deficient? Don't get B12 injections or take pills (less expensive) unless you are vegan or have a known deficiency. B12 is in fish, chicken and meat. Eat fish like wild salmon for a healthy source of b12. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: I think the problem may possibly have been caused by you not taking the active form of b6. When the inactive form is taken, there is a rate limiting factor in conversion, resulting in a relative deficiency of the active form. This can result in neuropathy. It is possible that taking the active form, pyridoxal 5 phosphate, may help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Until treated: If you are deficient in a vitamin, the symptoms will persist (and likely even worsen over time) until the deficiency is treated by supplying adequate amounts of the needed vitamin. It may take some time for symptoms to reverse even after one takes the needed vitamin as it can take time for our bodies to recover from the damage done. It is even possible for some of the damage to be permanent. ...Read more

I'm currently vitamin D deficient last checked (16). I want to purchase some vitamin D3. But I'm unsure of the dosage and how long I should take it.
Try 5000 iu/day: Most adults need to take 5-8000 iu/day to achieve optimal levels, which are 50-80. Everyone in US should take Vit D3 in fall and winter months as it is impossible to get D from the sun at that time. If you get enough sun in summer you don't need to take it then, but you do not seem to be getting sun so I advise you take it year-round.

Sun exposure needed: Some people have naturally pale skin complexion and so it is normal for those folks. In temperate zone, skin tone is somewhat darker in summer months and gets lighter with fall/winter. If your skin has always been so, then it it normal. Getting vitd supplement orally won't help your skin color, only sun exposure will. But should balance the risk of sunburn/cancer etc... Good luck. ...Read more

DON'T TAKE D2!!!: I'm not sure & don't even want to take the time to look it up because my advice is STOP TAKING D2 immediately. An analysis of 50 studies showed those who take D3 had a 6% decrease in mortality whereas D2 actually increased mortality by 2%! NO ONE SHOULD TAKE D2! See http://bit.ly/1hC250m Please stop D2 and switch to 5-8000 iu/day of D3. Please share this info with the doc who prescribed D2!!! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: The results you get from a vitamin depends upon many things. One, it would depend on your body's need for the vitamin - if you do not need it , it will not make a difference.

It depends: Our bodies are always active- your heart never stops, you always breathe, your brain is always active, as is every cell of your body to some degree. But there are times when we are less active than others. Water soluble vitamins (c, b) only stay in the body for several hours, fat soluble vitamins (a, d, e, k) can be stored and take longer to use up.But we need water-soluble vitamins on a daily basis. ...Read more
Depends...: B complex vitamin is often taken to help with stress. Magnesium, zinc, other trace minerals and phytonutrients are all also important to recover from stress. I recommend a b complex with 5-mthf because if you have a mutation in the mthfr gene then you would need his form to bypass the mutation. Most important though are lifestyle changes - restful sleep, exercise, diet and prayer/meditation. ...Read more
