  • Effectiveness
    Major (for myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome)
  • Side effects
    Severe (back pain)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 1 other Twice daily
Advice & Tips: The novelty had worn off. I am talking my dosage more in line with the recommendation. That would be 2 vapes after getting up and 2 vapes when preparing for bed. A few times, after exertion I take 2 vapes top remove fatigue. The pain I feel is not new or a direct cause of vaping but because I am not so fatigued that pain is unnoticeable. In fact, It has been a long time since feeling the intensity of pain that I am able to feel now. However, fatigue from autonomic exertion has all but disappeared. Ate a large (normal for the day) meal Thanksgiving and did not get fatigued as my body digested the meal. I really think a clinical study on taking huge dosages of vitamin B12 to mitigate systemic fatigue should be undertaken.

Advice & Tips: My energy levels, never good thanks to fibromyalgia, we're going down hill.  After blood tests, my B12 levels were low. (My mom's was too.).  Once I began a daily supplement, my energy levels improved back to where they had been before I noticed the decline.
