Vitcofol 2cc Injection
What is Vitcofol Why is it given as an injection with hCG diet, instead of having B-12 vitamin injections? I have never heard of Vitcofol until now.
Vitcofol=simply vit.: B3, B9 & B12 in a single combined injection. Could all of these be taken orally, if needed at all? Of course. Why injection? Doc wants to make sure actually taken in, easier, more money for Rx, etc. Would all fit. HCG diet mostly hype. Hydrocodone, dextromethorphan both psychotropic agents, often addictive, not good track records, esp. Used beyond a few days. Seek assistance worthy of your trust. ...Read more
Blood pressure very high 200/96 inspite of many tab for bp, blood sugar also high around 260. She has a hb count 8.5 inspite vitcofol 2ml weekly. Help?
Needs urgent care:
A BP of 200/96 in someone with heart disease is very dangerous. The blood sugar is also rather high (vitcofol won't help that) but the BP is more dangerous. Causes of resistant hypertension include:
1. Sodium retention - low salt diet and a loop diuretic such as Furosemide can substantially reduce bp
2. High aldosterone levels - spironolactone can block these.
Need to see a doctor urgently. ...Read more

Not great evidence: The question is, what are you getting the injection for? There are parkinson disease "doctors" who promote this scam as a treatment for parkinson disease when a recent trial did not show benefit. It is very expensive and of dubious benefit. There are a lot of sites that promote glutathione injections for other reasons...You'll notice that none of the sites are medical, and all are expensive. ...Read more
Almost anywhere: It is hard to go wrong with B12 injections. Anywhere there is enough fat can be used, but usually the stomach, buttock, upper arm. I teach my patients to do home B12 injections all the time. There are actually lots of You Tube videos teaching people how to give shots. ...Read more

Certainly, but so can you, your husband, your family.
I started giving my dear departed mother insulin injections daily beginning at age 8. Took some time to get used to but soon OK.
FYI, in those days we checked blood sugar levels in the urine and the different colors had no effect on the dose.
Not pleasant to do but turned out OK for me and Mum. ...Read more
Safer than peanuts: Botox has been around for decades! There are more deaths from peanuts and penicillin than there are from botox. Botox side effects are generally mild and they resolve without any treatment. There is no chance whatsoever of getting botulism from botox. It is a purified protein not a bacteria. Find a doctor with lots of experience and try it! ...Read more
Atropine injections: "Conditions in which inhibition of postganglionic cholinergic nerves are undesirable, such as glaucoma and tachycardia. Also contraindicated in asthma, because the parenteral dose which might relieve asthma would have an excessive drying effect upon mucous plugs in the bronchi. Prostatic hypertrophy, while not a contraindication, requires special attention to signs of urinary retention." See: ...Read more
