Can you take both types of b12 simultaneously?

I’m currently on 1000 mcg cyanocobalamin injections 1x per month. I wanted to buy a multi vitamin (taken by mouth) and it has 8mcg methylcobalamin Included in it along with other assorted vitamins. Does it matter if I choose to do both or should I not for any reason? It also includes folate (not folic acid), does that matter also? My folate levels are always in high range but I do eat a lot of leafy greens. Any advice would be very appreciated. Thank you

Hi Ashley8 I too am on cyanocobamalin 1mg injections (every three weeks) and I use a methylcobamalin oral spray once a day and I'm still "clivealive" and over 75 having had P.A. for 46 years.

You cannot overdose on B12 as any excess to requirement is excreted via your urine.

I'm not medically trained


Thank you both for your quick and helpful replies! :)
