Seek out cause: At your age, pernicious anemia is unusual, and would wonder about an intestinal parasite causing lack of b-12 absorption. A quest for the etiology is of value, as some autoimmune disorders may cause havoc with other organ systems. Treatment is best given via, intramuscular injections provided at least once monthly, 1, 000 mcg each. Please consult a hematologist and psychiatrist. Read more

Which form of B12 is best for shots/injections and why? 1. Cyannocobalamin 2. Methylcobalamin 3. Hydroxicobalamin

Which form of B12 is best for shots/injections and why? 1. Cyannocobalamin 2. Methylcobalamin 3. Hydroxicobalamin

Usually Methyl but..: One thing is clear- Cyano is worst- it has small amounts of cyanide the body must detox & convert it to an active form; little is converted. Methyl is the active form, esp. Good for those with MTHFR mutations & neurological symptoms & best for most. Some do better with Hydroxo. Experts agree Hydroxo better than Cyano but haven't seen many comparisons of Met vs. Hydr.

Pernicious aenemia is it ok to take B12 5000mg methylcobalamin tablets in between B12 3mothly injections? Thanks

Pernicious aenemia is it ok to take B12 5000mg methylcobalamin tablets in between B12 3mothly injections? Thanks

YES: B12 injections should be adequate but it is definitely ok to take tablets too- there is no known toxicity from too much b12. For best results your injections should also be methylcobalamin, next best hydroxycobalamin. Avoid cyanocobalamin- see http://www. Naturalnews. Com/032766_cyanocobalamin_vitamin_b-12.Html. Read more

My doctor prescribed me methylcobalamin injections after every 2 weeks to counter some fatigue or energy side effects of prozac (fluoxetine).Is this any help?

My doctor prescribed me methylcobalamin injections after every 2 weeks to counter some fatigue or energy side effects of prozac (fluoxetine).Is this any help?

Probably not: Methylcobalamin is a form of vitamin b12. It is useful for treating vitamin B12 deficiency, which can cause fatigue symptoms. However, there are many other causes of fatigue and low energy, including depression (is that why you're taking prozac (fluoxetine)?). Prozac (fluoxetine) itself may cause fatigue and low energy, although it usually doesn't. Methylcobalamin probably won't help that. Read more

What do you suggest if my doctor has given methylcobalamin 1500mcg to my 7 yrs old child for 1 month. Is it a high/toxic dose?

What do you suggest if my doctor has given methylcobalamin 1500mcg to my 7 yrs old child for 1 month. Is it a high/toxic dose?

Probably not toxic: This is a vitamin B12 analog and, since it is water soluble and therefore easily cleared from the body, is probably not toxic. Before stopping the vitamin, it is important to know why it was prescribed. This dose is only slightly higher than the NIH's recommended daily allowance, but you should remember that he is likely getting B12 from dietary sources as well. Read more

Can there be a multivitamin that uses methylcobalamin instead of cyanocobalamin?

Can there be a multivitamin that uses methylcobalamin instead of cyanocobalamin?

Not necessarily: Why do you wish to take a multivitamin, as recent studies suggest people have worse outcomes when they do take vitamins in that form. Also, many of the standard multivitamins do not dissolve in the gut, so not absorbed. Methylcobalamin is the biologically active form, and is present in medical foods, prescription items, but may be available in health food stores. Read more

I have been taking methylcobalamin sublingual daily 1000mcg am and 1000mcg om and symtoms keep getting worse almost can't function. What else can Ido?

What symptoms?: 2, 000mcg daily is a lot of vitamin B12. You didn't mention what/which symptoms are getting worse, so it's time to go see your Family Doc for thorough evaluation, including indepth history & examination plus labs as deemed appropriate.
