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.

    • I found out roughly 3 -4 months ago by accident that I am gluten sensitive.  One day I woke up and had joint pain in just about every joint on my left side. ie, elbow, wrist, knuckles, hip, knee, ankle and feet.  I was already having issues with intense foot pain that I mistook for plantar fasciitis.  Once I googled the symptoms, and realized ALL of several other things were happening at the same time as a result of gluten as well, I knew the answer.  I had been bloating in my belly for decades, and also having migraines for years,  but as of this year, I was looking VERY pregnant after each gluten episode. This was highly upsetting.   I am 52, and fairly active otherwise.  I had Migraines, depression, anxiety and now joint pain and peripheral neuropathy.  I'm on anxiety meds, and have hypothyroidism and diabetes 2.   Getting to the bottom of the problems with my symptoms finally, has been exhilarating and exhausting at the same time.  I cannot test for Celiac because my insurance won't pay for this since I am not anemic and have no family history of Celiac.  Since I have been eating gluten-free, I have been feeling better, besides the mistakes that produce symptoms within 30 min-an hour. When I make a mistake, my symptoms come on faster and faster, and also more intense.  For example, I ate at a restaurant thinking I was okay, and by the time I got home and exited the vehicle I looked 7 months Prego, and my feet felt like I was walking on razor blades. The last week or two has been the best for not making mistakes, and finally I can eat without feeling horrible. Here's the thing:  I still can't wrap my head around this!  I comb through the forum for answers and have learned so much!  I have an extremely supportive boyfriend.  I just am in so much denial about this.  It's emotional for me and some days I just can't handle it.  I know many people with full blown Celiac's disease have it way worse than I do, I just can't deal with this very easily.  Has anyone else been through the denial phase and emotional upset upon realizing the life changes that have to happen just to feel better when eating?  What did you do about it?
    • The basic idea is that you don't want to use something that might have gluten in/on it.  Pots and pans are easy to wash and get clean - a colander is not - all those little holes full of pasta goo.  A toaster with crumbs.  
    • Newbie mom of 15 yr old DD diagnosed 3 weeks ago. Just purchased brand new Farbwrware, nonstick items. Are these safe to use for her needs? Is it just scratched or oldish Teflon that's not suitable or all Teflon? These will only be used for gluten-free cooking. Trying to learn e as we go.
    • I highly recommend being tested for celiac disease before you go off gluten, if you haven't already done so.
    • Hi.  I'm new to this!  Please help me get started. I want to try..I mean DO...a gluten free life so that, hopefully, my health issues will go away. So, please help me.
