Comment:
I have diffuse nuerological symptoms that indicate B12 Deficiency. Tingling in my tongue and fingers and seeing spots. I was only taking a B12 supplement when I thought of it but without regular use I can experience confusion and worsening of the other symptoms. I am taking 1000 mcg but am wondering if I need more.

Comment:
I was advised to stop Vitamin B-12 when I started having frequent nosebleeds and my blood level was way, way too high. I researched it and I was getting an awesome overdose. I may go back later at a lower level.
