Hey guys, does anyone heres supplements b12 sublingual? And if so is there a proper dissolution time? Like letting it dissolve and then after a while one can drink liquids? Just wondering if this can delay the recovery process. Thanks!

    Hi, I don't use sublinguals but think the longer you can hold the tablet in your mouth the better as the B12 is absorbed by the salivary glands.

    Personally I use a methylcobamalin spray under the tongue.

    I'm not a medically trained person but have had P.A. (a form of B12 deficiency) for 46 years and even though I have regular injections find the additional supplement helps.

    I wish you well

      Thanks Clive! You're always a great help. Can you answer me something else? Why are my eyes puffy? They feel heavy and tired, is it B12 def. related too?

      One symptom of vitamin B12 deficiency is blurred or disturbed vision. This can occur when an untreated B12 deficiency results in nervous system damage to the optic nerve that leads to your eyes.

      The damage can disrupt the nervous signal that travels from your eye to your brain, impairing your vision but hopefully this may improve as you continue to take the supplements.

      Do you actually have a diagnosis of B12 Deficiency or Pernicious Anaemia via your doctor?

      However, if it is a worry. ask your doctor to refer you to an opthalmist (or whatever they call themselves these days).or if you wear glasses have a word with your optician.

      Remember, I'm not medically trained.
