      Hi! Thanks for your reply. I got an B12- "Articlox" injection and a couple of hours later I started experiencing a buzzing sound in my ears. Searching on the net I did find it on the list of rare side effects.I'm wondering if B12 could be toxic when taken in high dosages.

      I tried to find scientific articles related to B12 toxicity without success, so I doubt it is toxic.

      About articlox I found these:

      "Articlox side effects

          Vitamin B12 has extremely low toxicity and even taking it in enormous doses appears not to be harmful to healthy individuals.

          Hematologic: Peripheral vascular thrombosis has been reported. Treatment of vitamin B12 deficiency can unmask polycythemia vera, which is characterized by an increase in blood volume and the number of red blood cells. The correction of megaloblastic anemia with vitamin B12 can result in fatal hypokalemia and gout in susceptible individuals, and it can obscure folate deficiency in megaloblastic anemia. Caution is warranted."

      On other sites I found that it can cause allergic reaction rarely, and afaik allergy might cause tinnitus, but I guess only in long term.

      Where did you find the article which mentions tinnitus as side effect? Why did you need B12 supplement?

      I was given the injection because of  low B12 (289). I found tinnitus as a side effect on a site on Hydroxobalamin.It's comforting to hear that it's not toxic. I guess that the buzzing may be related to hypertension because my blood pressure and pulse sky rocketed after the injection.The hematologic side effects you mentioned are worrying.I should check with my doctor if the symptoms persist.

    Hi Victoria I read somewhere that lack of b12 can cause tinnitus can't remember where but I'm not sure if noise I've got started last year may coincide with my b12 boosters ...
