  • For anyone having problems letter to give to your GP / pharmacy:


  • Thanks hampster1, that letter is potential of great value to some.


  • And I dare say this kind of thing is not helping, also a big shortage in the USA and Canada:


  • And yes I really do want to smack that silly pout off the reporters face...

  • Do they use hydroxocobalamin in Canada? I was under the impression they don't.

    Still, the article is a classic. Manages to say so much and yet still says so little. Followed by the "diet and exercise is all you need" comments. Maybe not always... :-)

  • No its a cyano shortage. This is an interesting take on it as well:


  • Thanks - interesting.

    After all, this is America, and people have every right to be swindled by charlatans.

    Many a true word...
