Methyl B12 Spray Makes Me Super Tired..
0

4 posts in this topic

I started taking a Methyl b12 spray this last week and noticed that around 2-4 hours after taking my dose that I get really sleepy.. I usually take a couple hour long nap when this happens and wake up feeling super refreshed... I also noticed I get bad headaches and light sensitivity if I try to stay awake when the drowsiness kicks in..Well yesterday I decided to skip the b12 all together to see if it was for sure the b12 making me feel this way and sure enough I did not experience the headache/drowsiness at all. Does anyone take their b12 at night? Also, has anyone ever experienced drowsiness, headaches or light sensitivity with Methyl b12 sprays?

The B12 brand is Pure Advantage B-12 500mcg spray

Other Supplements I take are:

NatureMade B Complex with Vit C (Contains no B12)

Solgar Calcium/Magnesium + boron

Carlson Cod liver oil

Just wanted to add that today it turned into a full blown migraine..which I have not had for years!.. I was so sensitives to light that I had to block out my window in my Bedroom with a blanket to sleep.. I also had some crazy nightmares while I was sleeping and woke up in a deep sweat. I feel better now. Will not be taking the spray again.

Hello,

Have you had your B 12 levels tested?

Anyways, I have read that many people will experience a worsening of symptoms before it gets better, and it is a sign that you are deficient.

However, I took Methyl B12 myself as well, and did not have a very good experience with it. I have switched over to a sublingual hydroxocobalamin, made by the company Perque. I am getting better results from this - anyways I think it is highly individual, some people will do better on methyl and some on hydroxo. Some actually recommend against taking methyl though I do not exactly understand the reason.

And also, I think the tiredness maybe a sign that you are deficient, I certainly had this when I first started supplementing with active forms of B12

I think your wise to delete the spray. B12 should be giving you more energy. I take Country Life sublinguals with no problems. I also take it in the morning as if I take it at night it energizes me and makes it hard to sleep.

    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy.

    • Annual celiac antibody testing is, in my opinion (and based on what celiac researchers have published), is critical, especially for a 12 year old.  Life is going to get harder for her.  Peer pressure is huge (I have a 15 year old daughter), and remaining diet compliant can be tough.   In Dr. Fasano's, Gluten Freedom, he discusses a young patient who became ill in high school after being gluten free for years.  His parents were perplexed.  Dr. Fasano took the young man aside and he confessed that while on a date, he didn't want to bring up his celiac disease.  So, he ate pizza.  He was too embarrassed to tell his parents.   My daughter does not have celiac disease.  She was first tested two years ago.  Since she is symptom free, is not anemic and her other lab work is fine, we'll wait to test her in another year.  It all depends on the patient, but every few years, testing is recommended for all undiagnosed first-degree relatives.   It certainly sounds like your younger children should be screened.   I wish you both well!      
    • Perhaps you should consider asking for a GI referral.  You might just skip the blood tests and go directly to an endoscopy/biopsies while you are still consuming gluten.  It is the "gold" standard for a celiac diagnosis anyway!   Here's the deal with going gluten free.  You can do it.  It costs nothing, but you must give it six months or longer.  You'd need to think like a celiac, but it can be done!  I'll tell you my tale.  My hubby went gluten-free 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP/PCP and my allergist.  After a year of mistakes and learning, he got well.  It worked!  Thirteen years later, I was formally diagnosed.  (It was a shock as I was only anemic at the time.)  Hubby would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical.  I must say, it's nice to see those lab results.  It really helped me adhere to the diet in the beginning too.   So, you know your medical situation.  You must do what's best for you!   I hope you feel better soon!
