1000 mcg/ml (cyanocobalamin) vs 1000 mcg vitamin B12 timed released caps

by Betty Dennis
(Oxford Ga USA)

I was thought to have Chrohns disease and Dr put me on 1000mcg/ml shot 2/mth. I found there was a blood test for Crohns and mine turned out negative. I do have a family history of Crohns. Insurance will not pay for the injectable so I bought 1000 mcg timed released tablets. How often should I take the tabs? My Dr office said to ask pharmacy,but I thought you might know. Please advise.Thank you Betty

It depends
by: Kerri Knox, RN

It depends upon why you are taking it. If you truly have an inability to absorb Vitamin B12 then you need to take it every day. You might need to take 5 to 10 times as much to get sufficient amounts. It all depends upon why you are taking it.

However, in all cases, you should read my pages on:

Methylcobalamin B12

and

Vitamin B12 Deficiency Treatment


To see what doses you might need to take and why cyanocobalamin in the incorrect form, and why you should ditch it.
