My daughter has been diagnosed B12 deficiency her level was 120 and has just finished the loading dose Hydroxocobalamin injections. GP recommending 3 monthly soon as loading dose finished. I have stated to doctor that i am unhappy with this as it seems a huge jump when she has been like this for years, therefore surely it will take more than two weeks to help repair damage and build levels back up.I am wondering is it ok to take sublingual Methylcobalamin 1000mcg in between injections as i really do not want her sliding back into the dark place she was in. Also doing preventable damage to her. She has really shown a great improvement since her injections and has even started to get her social life back.
On a more positive note, i am mental health nurse and since daughter diagnosed 6 months ago and through the kind info on here and further research i have been preaching to my colleagues/doctors about lack of knowledge about B12 and finally they have started checking patients being admitted onto our ward and are taking more interest in the symptoms that individuals experience and link to B 12 deficiency. Already 3 patients diagnosed B12 deficient and have started treatment 😃
