My daughter went back to her Gp as she relapsed back to being totally exhausted and unwell and mood swings once the loading doses were complete. We are not in the Uk and the protocol here is different, 7 daily injections, then once a week for a month and then monthly. Helpful advice on here suggested she have her folic acid and ferretin levels checked, which the Gp did and it seems she also checked serum B12 levels. She has just telephoned to say that the B12 levels are way too high at 2000 and that we need to stop the weekly injections straight away and wait at least a month before continuing. I tried to explain that the B12 levels are meant to be high at this stage of treatment, but it was difficult to sound convincing. Please can someone post a scientific link- medical research paper, health authority guidelines, or something - anything "medically authori
tative" that cannot be dismissed.
And now I find myself questioning if because the levels are so high, mean that she should go on to monthly now ? Not because I think the high levels are bad, I know that B12 cannot be overdosed - but because maybe she doesn't need such frequent dosing anymore to maintain her B12 ?
