Hi all.

I was diagnosed b12 deficient in 2013 even though I had part of my lower bowel removed in 1999 .

I won't bore you with the lonnnnng process of symptoms in between.

I SI every week and 12weekly from GP, my recent problem is dizziness which is very severe. I've been given prochlorperazine tables, does anyone know if these will interfere with b12?

No idea about the medication, sorry. But one of my symptoms of low B12 is dizziness. When I'm 'topped up' with B12, I'm rarely dizzy. I need to self-inject between my GP surgery injections - I don't find them enough. Your dizziness may be something else entirely, of course, just wanted to share that mine is definitely B12 related

has your GP done anything about finding out the cause of the dizziness?

I can't find anything to indicate that prochlorperazine and B12 interact but you could double check this with a pharmacist.

I'm have bloods done Friday.

I'll check with chemist as I've been violently sick today.

May be nothing but I'll check it out x
