    I have a prescription for B12 and inject myself every 3-4 days at home. It gves me more energy. The scrip costs me $8.29 for three months compared to $25 per shot at my doctor's office

    i get mine from a weight loss clinic once a week. i'm a WUSS when it comes to needles, and it doesn't hurt at all....trust me! you can give them to yourself...you can order them and it would be a lot cheaper. i wouldn't want to do that though....needles are not for me to be messing with!

    I buy zipp fizz at costco and that has B12 in it, it's awesome! I feel great after drinking it, it comes in concentrate form or powder you can add to your water.

    Yeah, I think that the b12 that you are taking probably has about the same amount of mcg. You'd have to check the bottle......the one from GNC doesn't have to be held in your mouth you can just swallow a whole dropper full.

    Hi Katy..I've got the subligual B-12 and I don't really notice a difference when taking it...I was wondering if the shot would be better...Mine is Natures Way from Walmart...place a dropper full under your tongue and hold it there for about 30 seconds before swallowing...Is this the kind you mean? Maybe GNC's would be a better product that the Wally World kind...

    Hi there Losing - Yes you helped tremendously...thank you! My mom use to have to get B-12 and Iron shots because she has A- Blood with the RH Factor and she bruises easily and gets tired quickly and the area
    around the shot location would look awful for days...guess it could have been because of her bruising so
    easily...she also said the shots were very painful...I ain't afraid of pain but just wondered if anyone else
    experienced it like my mom...Again thanks so much...

    And Losing, your "Me Now" pic is soooo cute...you keep up the good work...I can't wait till I can say I lost 40 pounds...I'm in aww of you!

    My questions are:
    Does the clinic or doc give them to you?
    How often do you take them?
    How bad is the "ouch"?
    Can I give them to myself if I get the script?
    Does it affect your sleep?

    Ok I think that about wraps it up...sorry for so many ????????
    i get mines @ a clinic along with my supply of phen every 3 weeks. i know a lot of people order the vials online & give them to themselves or have someone close to them do it. on the pain factor: it all depends on who gives them & how experienced they are. When I first got them , they didnt hurt . But the last 3 or 4 times I've gone to the clinic, this new girl has been giving them to me & omg can u say pain?? The injection site hurts for HOURS!!! But anyways, I could blame the b12 for my insomnia..but yea I think I just have probs sleeping. Taking an otc sleep aid like advil pm or something should help tho. hope i helped some..
    The proof is in the pics!!! <3





    Starting over again!!!!

    I don't get the shots but over the weekend I went to GNC and got the B12 liquid and its 1000mcg per dropper where as a normal multivitamin only has 6-24mcg per pill. You can take one dropper a day and I can certainly feel a difference.

    Question B-12 shots

    I've seen several of you say that you take a B-12 shot with your phen...
    My questions are:
    Does the clinic or doc give them to you?
