    I had blood work done and it shows my B12 is around 675, I think the top range on this scale was 1000+. I do take mega B;s with folate so should I be with that range. The blood work was done before I started on the mega B's and forgot I had it done, until I was looking for my hormone panel I found this lab work.

    Thanks for any info,

    For pernicious anemia is usually 1000mcg every few months, initially this would be weekly. For energy and cfs studies have shown 5000mcg every third day helped, i have used 10000mcg every third day with no negative problems. Any excess is excreted and impossible to overdose. Now i take when i 'crash' every second day for a week, seems to help. i dont use it regularily as u get sick on injecting yourself. The injections arent that painful though.
    Good luck

    that 10,000 mcgs of methylcolabam is extraordinarly important at bedtime. Helps get the toxins out of the brain. You can google Dr. Cheney, B-12 and find info about about it.
