I've been taking a 2500mcg sublingually but would like to raise my level.  Am thinking about doing 5000mcg a day, seem ok?  Thanks!

I don't take a sublingual, I do shots.  But.  The ASMBS recommends 350-500 mcg daily, unless your B12 level is low.  What's your level on 2500 a day?  I would think that would be plenty.

 I take 1000mcg daily, and my labs always come back every 6 months a bit high, but I know that's ok.  What are your labs showing on 2500mcg daily? Why are you thinking about raising your dosage? Are you low?

I was told to take 500mcg everyday or 1000mcg every other day. Right now I'm taking 1200mcg every other day because I couldn't find 1000mcg in sublingual.

 Walmart has sublinguals that are 500mcgs each. I take 2 of them a day, and you can take them at the same time. They're tiny and inexpensive. :D

I take shots also. One less thing to worry about taking in the month in between.

For those of you taking shots, what's the shot dose and frequency?

1000 mcg once a month is the usual dose, unless your labs show you need more.  I do 1000 mcg once a week to keep my level up, though.
