Hi am currently researching supplementing my loading doses with a B12 patch as I suspect my GP will be unlikely to increase/extend my loading doses after the initial 6 given she feels my B12 levels at 215 are normal. I haven't the mental energy for a fight and it seems that most people on this site have unfortunately had to go down the self medicating route. I've seen a patch on Amazon made by Pur Organica that contains 4 months supply of methyl B12 (1200mg) and 400mg folate for £12.99. Just wondering if anyone has tried these and if so are they worth it? I'm unable to be tested for IF so not sure if I have any absorption issues as GP isn't of the opinion that my problem is B12 as I'm not anaemic (yes I know from this site that anaemia isn't always present or is a late manifestation of B12 deficiency) but still wondered if a patch is better than sublingual lozenges? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
