Well a little while back I posted a rep!y to a query about people being forced onto tablets instead of injections......the nurse practitioner at my surgery had asked me to change but when I told her I have no Intrinsic Factor she agreed I would need to stay on injections.
How wrong can you be..at a gp appointment yesterday for an unrelated matter my gp pounced....I am to be given tablets, I said no that can't be right I don't absorb as I have no Intrinsic Factor so need injections. He assured me that they have done tests and people do better on the tablets even if they have no IF. He even said I will feel better on the tablets. I was not happy and told him so , it endedwith him saying try the tabletsfor three months and if your B12 level drops I will reconsider after we test you.
Since my NHS injection is ten weekly I self inject anyway so my level will not drop.
Looks like I will waste NHS money for tablets which I have no faith in and carry on self inje ting just one extra the week my nhs one would have been.
Anyone have any experience of the tablets ? I note they are cyanocobalamin not hydroxy.
