I have a questions about Vitamine B12 injections. I live in Mexico and just bought and injected a B combo injection. It's hydroxocobalamin 5000mcg, B1 200 mg, B6 100mg.
I was hoping anyone knew how often I should have it injected. Most other injections state 1000 mcg for daily injections, but as this one is 5x higher, maybe 1x per week? More often? or less often?
I've tried to look on the internet, but can't get it clearly. And also, can you overdose on the injections?
I'd do one every 2-3 months.
You can't overdose because B12 is water soluble so you just pee out the excess.
When I did high doses, 3000mcg 3-4 times a week, my pee was pink sometimes than I knew I had to cut back a little! :)
Thank you for replying. I guess I'll keep an eye on my pee color and probably go for 1x per 2 months.
Hope It'll make me feel better soon, more energized even.
i used to go in for b-12 shots monthly. but dont know what the dose was. i have an appt on the 18th so i will ask the nurse then. am thinking about starting them up again. i felt better when i was getting them. more energy. (wow, old post. but i will still find out just incase someone else wants to know)
