Anyone Taking A Vitamin B12 Supplement?
0

16 posts in this topic

I took one 500mcg B12 supp pill 2 days ago and I vow here and now I will never touch the stuff again! I have WAY TOO MUCH energy, like a drank a hundred cups of coffee, I'm jittery, panicky, heart palpitations, I hate it.

Anyone ever experience this, and if so, what'd you do to get over it? I already threw the pills out (Nature Made 500mcg), but need to flush this outta me somehow...

lol ! I just noticed your post on B12 as I posted mine, I had the opposite effect, the ingredients in mine "Jamieson B12 100mcg" may have made me sick xD

I kinda wish I could get a boost from mine >_> that's an intense reaction.

I never heard of B12 doing that. Maybe it was all that coffee and not the B12? I take 1000 mcg daily.

I wasn't drinking coffee, it made me feel as though I'd drank a hundred cups of coffee.

I take a dosage much higher and have never had an issue with it although I do notice some increase in energy. Are you taking any other drugs or supplements that might have interacted with it? You may want to mention the reaction to your doctor as you can get injections instead if your levels are low.

Wish I could help you with speeding it out of your system. My only suggestion would be to drink lots of water and stay away from caffine or energy drinks until it passes.

Did you do bloodwork before starting on B-12? It can cause some to get high energy, which for most is welcomed.. but maybe you are sensitive to this ... I suggest before taking B-12, Vit D. calicum, iron & such to have blood work done to see if you need it....

As with drugs , same with vits & minerals, you need to be tested to see if you need it..

This is what gives alternative meds a bad rap..........

I get a B12 shot once a month at the doctor's office. I have not noticed any ups or downs. <_<

I get the shot too after testing really low. Tried the sublingual and broke out in acne all over my face with a bright red rash to boot. Never had acne in my life before........ I needed the B12, but not in that form obviously.

I get super jittery on vitamins, too. Usually, I'm ok for the first day or two when I try a new one and then by the second or third day I feel anxiety, palpitations and it makes my insomnia much worse. Sporadic dosing seems to work, but it's not an optimal solution.

Caffeine has been off limits for years because I'm super sensitive to that, too.

If you do find a better solution to getting vitamins without the side effects, I'd love to hear it.

I take a high dose. 1,000 mg plus whatever is in my multi and B Complex. I take it at bed time and it doesn't have that effect on me.

If your doctor reccommends B12 injections, ask about giving them to yourself. I shoot myself once a month and avoid the office visit fee and time consumption.

It should not make you feel THAT bad, but I agree that you should not take ANY B supps unless you need them. What did your blood work reveal?

I am living proof that over-supplementing causes more harm than good (nerve pain and burning, agitation, insomnia, pounding heart, and a dozen other issues)

I was B-12 deficient and folate deficient, so I dosed as directed by the PC doc. Once I started absorbing, apparently, those doses were too much and I had bizarre symptoms.

My GI doc said " hey, STOP TAKING THOSE! your levels are sky high!"

I did and they stopped.

Check the ingredients.

You could be salicylate sensitive.

If they have food coloring in them...and most do....you might have had a sal reaction.

...just something to consider...in case.

google salicylate food sensitivities and look at the symtoms there. This will help you know.

I wish my B 12 would do that to me. I'm scrounging for energy all the time.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
