Hello to all you helpful posters! I have found only one supplemental source of B12 in the U.S. besides prescribed injections and pills (bilingual and regular). This is a B12 patch that is applied behind the ear. Has anyone had any experience with this? I was diagnosed with PA over a decade ago, but, like many of you, much damage was done to my body before I finally got diagnosed. An even mildly helpful supplement to my prescribed injections would be welcome, since I am not aware of any way to obtain B12 for additional self injection in the U.S..

Dear Lindajanes , we have had several posts from the US like yours , and I know that the posters have eventually obtained B12 ampoules . I’m still I bed at the moment (time difference !) I remember that one source was in Canada . It was an online pharmacy called Goldpharma.cn
They supplied Hydroxocobalamin B12 which is a form of B12 which is considered superior to Cynocobalamin. The price was very reasonable . The make was Rotexmedica .
I have used Rotexmedica for 3 years and it is absolutely great . It is made by a reputable company in Germany . It comes in 1mg x1ml ampoules .
Have just been online to them and you need to register before you get any info . They have the Cynocobalamin form of B12,which is widely used in the US , and also the Hydroxocobalamin form which is better , ( it stays in the system longer ) but a little more expensive . .
There is a US company called vitaminquick.com where you can obtain the Methylcobalamin form of B12 . It’s very expensive . I’ve tried this form and found it no better than Hydroxocobalamin. Maybe you will hear from fellow compatriots in the US with better info . Very best wishes .
Just for clarity...
The .cn top level domain is for China. Goldpharma.cn are registered in Taiwan. But they do seem to ship from Germany... healthunlocked.com/pasoc/po...
I'm here in the U.S. Can you get a prescription from your doctor for B12 ampoules? I asked my doctor and he gave me a prescription without blinking an eye. I took it to my local pharmacy and they filled it. I also got my needles from them. It was very inexpensive. My prescription is for the Cynocobalamin form of B12.
