  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Doctor recommendation)
  • Side effects
    Moderate (uncomfortable)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
Dosage: 1 mg Weekly
Advice & Tips: I usually get a huge burst of energy the day after my B12 shot. So anything that needs to be done is usually saved for that day. I DO have to have someone else administer the weekly injection as it's too difficult to inject into my own arm and it has to be injected slowly because it's a thick liquid. Take advil beforehand because there is usually discomfort in the injection site for a few hours.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: uncomfortable
