Vitamin B12, B6 injections
on 11/21/07 9:35 am
I cannot image how taking these injections would spur weight loss. Seems like another diet "gimick" to me. If you are a post-op... you really need to take your vitamins. Please do not put yourself at risk getting permanent nerve damage in feets and hands, being anemic and so many other health issues. Kathy

It costs about $40 for 30 ml B12 and $50 for B6 30 ml and 3 shots a week can last up to 3 months. Much cheaper than the diet clinics. I do it myself.
Hope this helps.

In toronto you can get your dr to prescribe the med for you and teach you to give your own injections. Also what tyoe of sypplement are you taking for your protien and other supplements I know these are very expensive over time, I am considering having the vsg surgery in the usa or mexico and i have found a great supplement company that has great products and they taste good, I am starting them now to help get healthier before surgery. you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Hello, do you put both the B6 and B12 in one injection? How much of each? The syringes that I bought are 3ml.
Thanks for your help.

B6 can be high in our population and it's the only B vite that can actually make you feel BAD if too high for prolonged time.
If you do this? Please be sure your B6 levels are being measured often.
No such thing as too high B12, tho. But dang, even if you buy the veterinary b complex, it's still going to run about $5/yr for the serum and whatever you pay for syringes. So, I'm thinking $20/yr to give yourself B complex shots.
Even when I bought my rx B12 at Costco, w/o insurance, it was $7 for a 30-shot vial.
See the pattern? Should be cheap, cheaper, cheapest.

P.S. My year + long absence has NOTHING to do with my WLS, or my type of WLS. See my profile.
