B12 went up so much recently, and my insurance doesn't pay for compounded product.

I use Hydroxocobalamin, 10 mg./ml per day. This is costing $200 per month, or $120 if I buy 3 at a time.

Do you have a pharmacy that would be cheaper?

B12oils.com in Australia sell effective topical B12 oils that might suit you just as well and much more cheaply....worth having a look at. I have found them very effective and Greg there is very knowledgeable and also very helpful.

Thanks for the information. I called Infuserveamerica and emailed the B12 oil company.

Lapis29, I find that my thinking and sleep are better. Theoretically, it helps methylation and detoxification.

Ukcarry, may I ask if you have experience to compare to injectable? Do you know how many mg are in 1 pump?

McGuff compounding pharmacy is a lot cheaper for methyl B12, a vila lasts me more than a month or so, at 0.5 ml daily injections.

Jubilee, please let us know about pricing at Infuserve vs McGuff, etc. It sounds like McGuff is surely cheaper, because you are drawing it up yourself (although in that case, you need the syringes and

needles, too, plus take the time to draw it up (I know, not a big deal, except when you are exhausted and out of it).

I use methyl B12 from Infuserve, so not sure how their pricing would compare to hydroxy. I get vials that are 30 mL, 10 mg/mL. So if you are taking a 10mg- 1 mL shot each day a vial would last you one month.

I get 1 cc insulin needles from Walmart, $13 for 100 so that would last 3 months. I have purchased them from online vendors at half that price, so shop around if you can.

Even factoring in the cost of the vial, shipping, and needles, you should be able to get your monthly cost down to way, way less than half what you are paying now.
