Dosages are the same for everything

The dosage of Vitamin B12 is the same for everything. If your condition is related to Vitamin B12 deficiency, then the goal is to remedy the Vitamin B12 deficiency. You can look at the page on Vitamin B12 Deficiency Treatment to see the dosage range that studies show can be helpful.

I recommend using Beyond B12 supplements because they are designed to be safe for those with MTHR genetic variations- which many people with symptoms of Vitamin B12 deficiency are, even if they do not know it. Most who are B12 deficient are also folic acid deficient as well, which is why I recommend this formulation.

If you have cerebellar ataxia, I also would suggest that you look into Gluten Sensitivity as a possible undiagnosed cause of your ataxia as well. Gluten Ataxia is a common problem that can go unrecognized for years and even decades. For more info on that, check out the book Gluten Toxicity: The Mysterious Symptoms of Celiac Disease, Dermatitis Herpetiformis, And Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance. It might be very enlightening for you.

Hope this helps.
