In brief: Hard to say because:

All vitamins by definition are essential for health.
While B12 deficiency can be very serious, you can die from vitamin C deficiency (scurvy), D deficiency can cause depression, chronic pain & increased risk of cancer and autoimmune disease, low B1 causes diarrhea, dermatitis and dementia etc, So which of those is worst? We need ALL vitamins for good health. See http://tinyurl.com/mzrkbx8

In brief: The B vitamins all

act together. If you take too much of one there is a possibility that you can through off the production of some of the others.
B12 is used for energy and nerve repair. Sublingual (under the tongue) is much better than the type you swallow. B12 w/Folate sublingual is a good combo, or B Complex. Peace and good health. Check w/doc and ask about your vitamin levels first.
