Cyanocobalamin is a synthetic form of B12 which can be used to prevent or treat low levels of Vitamin B12. It provides your body with the ability to maintain healthy blood cells, nerves, and metabolism.
When using Cyanocobalamin, be wary of using high doses of Vitamin C as it may interfere with B12 absorption.
Cyanocobalamin is indicated for use in people experiencing pernicious anemia, gastrointestinal pathology, fish tapeworm infestation, malignancy of pancreas or bowel, and folic acid deficiency.
Be sure to tell your physician if you are allergic to Cyanocobalamin, hydroxocobalamin, multivitamins, have multiple sclerosis, or an allergy to cobalt. Also, there are possible negative reactions with the following medications so mention them to your physician; Chloramphenicol; colchicine; folic acid; methotrexate (Rheumatrex, Trexall); para-aminosalicylic acid (Paser); and pyrimethamine (Daraprim).
This medication should be given by injection into a muscle or subcutaneously. It is important to note that if the medication is given intravenously that most of it will be wasted and expelled in the urine instead of being absorbed.
Injections should be scheduled at a normal interval to help maintain your B12 levels at an acceptable level.
