B12 Prescription

07/18/2008

Question:

I am taking B 12 injections 2000 mcg twice weekly. I have periods of not being able to stay awake during the day and insomnia at night. As a nurse, I have never given this much B 12 to a patient and am wondering if the dosage is causing my symptoms.

Answer:

I doubt if it is hurting or helping. It may be better to find out what is wrong with you so your doctor can do the correct thing.
