Would like to know if anyone has any idea about this. daughter has been on b12 jabs 7 weekly for almost three years..and I've watched the cycle ..dips before jab and symptoms etc. Never has really drunk at all, just once or twice in last three months...gets tipsy very quickly after two drinks and sobers amazingly quickly, or so she's been told. Five weeks ago she started oral contraceptive pill. During this time she has had headaches , irritability etc, constantly..(side effects in leaflet talk about this and irritability depression etc..which she gets anyway more as her b12 dips before jab). But, just over a week ago, three days before jab, she got even more down and fed up with treating herself like a 'china doll' and decided to throw caution to the wind and see what would happen if she did drink and got drunk...think she just got fed up and into destruct mode. She was a bit drunk until leaving venue but got outside and collapsed, was violently sick several times and almost completely out of it. Friend couldn't get her up and had to have help getting her home..(never, ever happened before)..but it has been this last week that I need help understanding. Obviously she was hung over next day, Monday..but it has been appalling . Even on the Wednesday when going for jab she was in a bad state. Very bad headaches, half asleep, feeling sick, weak no energy. Since the jab it has got worse; her irritability has gone through the roof to almost uncopeable, and the headaches have become very much worse. Have noticed that head is bad all the time but about an hour after taking pill they become very severe , eyes, temples over head and top of jaw etc, nauseas, and tired etc. Everything has become much worse these few days after having jab. Please could you tell me if the alcohol and pill hitting the 'dip' before the b12 cause the lengthy recover from being drunk, and also if having the b12 suddenly put into her in this state could cause everything to become worse? We were about to redo loading doses and bring b12 doses closer together, and I daren't start that with her head being so bad and not knowing if it will make things worse. Wondered if the b12 will be a problem with these other two things. Thanks
