After finding out my B12 levels were at 157 a month and a half ago, today I got my final booster shot of 10 GP-prescribed hydrococobalamine HCl 1 mg (self-injecting twice a week over 5 weeks). During the first 3 to 4 injections, they made me feel worse. And to be honest I'm still only feeling slightly better actually.
So I asked my GP what to do after the 10th shot. She said to either take bimonthly shots, OR take sublinguals of methylcobalamine 1 mg daily. I chose the latter, because I am going to travel a lot and would rather not take needles and ampules with me. Also, the injections are painful and I'm not (yet?) seeing much improvement with them.
Anyway, because I didn't feel well and I was curious, I already got the siblinguals and have been taking them for the 3 days in between the 9th and 10th injection and for the first time was starting to feel a bit better - not great or anything, but, well: hopeful! Today, as I was having the injection, I didn't take the sublingual and I feel wobbly again.
So, my questions: Are there any of you who JUST use sublinguals (so no injections) and who feel fine with that? What are the advantages of injections to sublinguals? Can it be that my body simply likes methyl better than hydroxo? Or would you say that I should not be done with the injections yet as I just am slightly starting to see improvements (I've been reading that a lot on this forum)?
At a loss here... Thank you for responding!
