30 Bananas a Day!

Greetings BananaFolk!

 

I wanted to start a discussion about those who have already taken the B12 shots......

 

I am on Day 3 today, and although I don't notice any difference (except the high I get after I actually realize I managed to inject myself!!) I wanted to ask opinions on IM vs. SubQ injections.

 

(IM=intramuscular and SubQ-subcutaneous)

 

THe instructions and previous info from DR go the route of IM, which was my intention.(I went for my thigh as the injection point.)

The first two days, I pinched a small amount of skin and injected, hardly felt it and no blood....

Today, I didn't pinch the skin and went straight for the muscle....still hardly felt it when the needle was in, but it bled quite a bit when I pulled the needle out, and there is already a bruise forming....I can definitely feel that I hit the muscle today....have an achy feeling in the quad, not pain just achy....

 

So I'm assuming I got the muscle today, and the previous two times,it must have been SubQ?

 

So....which one is better?  I can deal with the muscle aches for the first week if it is more effective, I just wondered what your experiences had been??

 

Thanks fruity ones :)

Hi Bluebird,

 

Both sub-Q and IM go directly into the bloodstream, so it's the same thing.

 

Check my attachments, instructions says in the 2nd paragraph to make the sub-Q shot 90 degree if you can grab/pinch 2 inches of skin/fat, 45 degree angle if you can only pinch 1 inch or less!

 

You're NOT supposed to hit the muscle with sub-Q injections!!!

 

I'm much more comfortable injecting sub-Q then IM because it only goes a few millimeters into the fat..:)

Thanx alot for the upload
No problem man

Thanks Rawbert...

 

I ordered from the same company as you, but got the less concentrated version of it, and it comes with instructions specifically for IM injections.  There is no mention of SubQ anywhere...part of what led to my confusion. I attached a pic of the directions that came with the kit.....

 

The dosage is 1000mcg/1ml as opposed to your 10000mcg/ml, so the amount of fluid going in for me is a lot more...I fill up the whole syringe.  The needle is 25Gauge, 5/8" also, not sure if that is different from the ones they gave you......

Also, I don't remember DR saying SubQ at anytime online, he always says IM, but the video of you two definitely looked like a SubQ injection to me.

 

Thanks for the response and advice! I appreciate it :)

No problem BB!

 

You could still do sub-Q using the insulin needles I guess you just have to inject 3 times to get 1ml in because the syringe is around 0.35 ml..

 

Next time you should get the higher concentration one tho because that's the best bang for the buck!

10mlx 10000mcg is 100000mcg in total, that's 50 2000mcg shots @ ~$6 each or 100 1000mcg  shots @ ~$3 each!

Interesting. Sub-Q sounds safer but i hate that injection b12 contains sodium chloride

Can one use the same approach to Sub-Q as IM in terms of once a day for 1 week, then once a week for a month? etc like in the Could it be B12 book
Sure.
How is it going? any progress?
No. I guess I wasn't deficient:)

Q1) Is there such a thing as a vegan B12 injection products?
My wife searched the internet and was unable to find any.
