    My Dr. will not let me have both. Don't know why. She said I could not take pills w/the shot. I usually don't feel any different until about the 6th day after the shot, can tell I need one the next day.

    Default b12 shots vs pills

    Actually I am currently doing both. I get a shot once per week and the doctor gives me 7 days worth of b-12 to keep me going until the next shot. This has worked wonders for my energy level. I tried the shots several years ago but could feel the change in my energy level between shots. Taking the pill in between definitely helps. So far I am losing one pound per day and my energy is at a all time high. I'm just a little concerned about the dependency issue. Like what happens when I want to stop the shot....

    well if your going to take the B12 dont take the pills because your body really does not get the full benifits of it , So buy the B COMPLEX SUBLINGAUL, your body absorbs like 80 to 85% of it this way, with the pill your getting less than 50% of it, they also have B COMPLEX patches now and they say those really work!!

    I also take the shots weekly. I get mine from a weight loss clinic. The nurse told me the shots are more effective than the pills. They get into your system faster this way. My shots come free each week with my weigh-in. I see the doctor once a month. ( BUT, the shot is really painful to me. I bruise badly from them. Does anyone else have this problem? )

    I have heard that you can buy them online........if your doctor doesn't do them BUT I don't think the lipotropics is in those ones. It is the lipotropics that help your liver metabolize the fat cells better...because it's the livers job to do so. That is why you shouldn't drink alcohol or caffiene while trying to lose weight so your liver can focus on the fat cells and not filtering alcohol and caffiene out of your system. My doctor told me this.

    Are you getting your B12 shots from a weight loss clinic? I asked my MD about it last month and he said he didn't do anything like that and had actually never heard of B12 shots for weight loss. Wtf????? I take 1000mg of B12 in pill form every day. I would love any extra boost for weight loss.

    P.S. I forgot to mention I have lost a total of 15 pounds in 15 days with the shots and phentermine! I am not even really exercising, just cleaning...walking and staying active with my kids. I am also eating 1200-1500 calories a day and lots of fluid! Clear fluid like water, crystal light, sometimes koolaid and diet 7up is so yummy!



    P.S.S. My2angels...taking the B12 pills is NOT the same unfortunately because your body has a hard time absorbing b12 through your stomach. That is why it is injected into your muscles in it's pure form. Also, the shots that I am getting have lipotropics in them. I wrote a post on them a couple of days ago...you should search for it using my username (I haven't posted that many at all...maybe like 5) so it will be easy to find. It teaches about what lipotropics are in the shots and what each one does..........please read it.....it will answer ALL your questions I promise!

    I bought an ENTIRE vial from my doctor. It was pretty expensive....$179.00 which included the syringes and everything but it was worth EVERY cent. It was a months supply and I get a shot every other day of 2ccs. My roomate has been giving me the shot and yesterday she wasn't here so I actually gave it to myself.

    It was pretty funny actually....I put the needle in my leg and then ripped it out (as a reflex) and then I hurried up and stuck it back in.

    It wasn't that bad at all and if you want to know the truth it hurts the least if given in the upper buttocks (in the upper hand corner). But you can't give yourself one in that area....it has to be in the upper leg.

    I have taken phentermine before (by itself) and NEVER got these good of results. I have been consistently losing a POUND per day. Even this morning when I weighed myself I lost another pound!!! And I even consistently lost a pound per day over my TOM which really shocked me!!!

    I would recommend these shots to anyone. I can definately tell the difference. I have more energy and I am sleeping better then I have in a looooooooooooong time.

    Please get the shots.........you WILL see a difference! Let us know what you decide!

    My doctor informed me that is was the same. Dbethied may be right that the vitamin gets into your system quicker with the shot. However, a lot of people here are taking the liquid b-12, and that seems to give them an instant boost. I am taking the pill daily.

    i hate needles and the shots do NOT hurt at all. i don't think taking the vitamins would be the same. i mean, they would still work, but not the same. i think it would be like if you go to the doctor and get a shot or an IV injected with pain medication.....the point is to have it hit you quicker. but if you take pills daily for pain they are effective, but they don't hit you like a shot does.

    Default Is B12 shots the same as taking B12 vitamins daily?

    I can't stand needles but I've heard alot of people have great results with Phen mixed with B12 shots monthly and some weekly. If I was to start taking B12 vitamins would it be the same as a shot? Also, for those getting the shots, do they hurt afterwards? I had to get a steroid shot the other day and that ****** hurt so bad for about 30 minutes after I had it done.
