I take sublingual b-12 tabs. They are very sweet and pleasant but I haven't noticed any difference in me since I started taking them. I don't even recall why I was supposed to take them. Unsure

Here is some generic info.

The Dietary Reference Intake for an adult ranges from 2 to 3 µg (micrograms) per day.

Vitamin B-12 is believed to be safe when used orally in amounts that do not exceed the recommended dietary allowance (RDA). The RDA for vitamin B-12 in pregnant women is 2.6 µg per day and 2.8 µg during lactation periods. There is insufficient reliable information available about the safety of consuming greater amounts of Vitamin B-12 during pregnancy.

there is a lot more info on this web page.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitamin_B12

I am sure there is a lot more info.

Well, I've been taking mine for about a month. I did a quick lookover on that site you posted, and found this:

Vitamin B-12 deficiency can potentially cause severe and irreversible damage, especially to the brain and nervous system. At levels only slightly lower than normal, a range of symptoms such as fatigue, depression, and poor memory may be experienced.

I'm guessing the fatigue and poor memory is why I was prescribed the drops. Obviously, they haven't helped with that! Laughing

I take a B-12 shot 1000mcg every two weeks. I fogot about them and didn't have one for about 2 months and I could barely get off of the couch. They really help to increase my energy level. Without them my B12 runs in the moderately low range. I have never tried the drops or tabs.

Sorry - just got in from killing time, waiting for the new grandbaby....She is here...finally!!! Yea, healthy 8lb 3oz. Mom and baby doing fine. She has my middle name as well. Yea!!! They live about 8 hrs from here and it just about killed me to be so far away. My baby has just had a baby! We have been waiting since 1 a.m. last night. Many phone calls back and forth. The stress is about to do me in. Took my meds and am going to lay down awhile.

The B-12 drops... do they work as well as the shots. I hate shots. And where do you get them?

Thanks

Hilda
