Have You ever gotten a B12 shot at the Doctor's office?

Recently started b12 shots and noticed a big difference in my energy level and other functions as well. I moved around better, therefore I ate and slept better, therefore I could think better and think better thoughts! There are other methods of B12 but I am new at it so I have only had the shot at the Dr's office.

  • I used to, and I miss it! I need to start again after we get done with this move.

    Taking B12 didn't have the same results as the shot - I'm not sure why.

  • That is what the Dr said. He didn't want to give me the pills bc they don't work the same. And once it is in the system u only need it once a month.

  • I haven't but I've always wondered about this, because sometimes my energy is low. How did your doctor decide you needed this?

  • Yes, but was a long time ago and was just a time or two.

    I am on D vitamin therapy now but get it from little oil pills or capsules. Many are deprived of vitamin D. I live in FL but am not in the sun much. I also go to dermatologist for damage done in the sun when I was younger. Vitamin D helps me with calcium and also with diabetes.

  • Having a thyroid issue for three years and counting I was given B12 vitamins VERY HIGH DOSE one pill for a month (ONCE A WEEK) was better than the shot which is a BIG NEEDLE!!!
