Hey Everyone:


My doctor recently wrote me a script for IM

Methylcobalamin and our pharmacy along

with the other 15 in the area either say they

dont have it and cant get it or "it doesnt

exist"...


Does anyone have any ideas on where we could try

and get this?


Thanks Roy & Katie

You need a compounding pharmacy. Most doctors who prescribe this type of medication have one they can recommend. If not, look in your phone book or ask your pharmacy. You can also find them on-line.

Wow, didn't know walmart is a compounding pharmacy.

Best to call around and get prices since they can vary greatly between compounding pharmacies. Perhaps walmart has a good price?

Compounding pharmacies?? That makes no sense I got mine both at CVS and Rite Aid pharmacy. If a pharmacy doesn't have it they will order it. I also have B1 IM which they had to order. More expensive then B12 but good for sore muscles.

B12 is dirt cheap at Rite Aid or CVS.

It does not require a compounding pharmacy.

Walmart and compounding? Since when?

You need a compounding pharmacy for the injections, here one of the ones with the best prices and it comes with pre-filled syringes and needles, it must be kept in the fridge.

So I guess it does but why are you LOL???

I don't see anything funny here at all [dizzy]

Are you guys getting cynocobalamin at CVS, Rite Aid and WalMart as opposed to Methylcobalamin?

Methylcobalamin is not dirt cheap, cynocobalamin is and not near as effective.

Abxnomore:

I agree with u...

Cynocobalamin is what CVS Rite Aid and Walmart

along with all pharmacies have. They have no

clue what Methylcobalamin is.

That is where the issue came in. We didnt know

we needed a compounding pharmacy for it.

From what I heard the Methylcobalamin is very

expensive.

Thanks for the link!!!!!!


WildCondor: Thanks for the reply and link!!!!!!

Cynocobalamin is what I use. It works great for me. Good luck on finding the other form.

The price of methylcobalamin varies greatly too. I have seen anywhere from $75 for a months supply up to $380. Make sure you call around and ask for prices before you get ripped off. Cyanocobalamin you can get at any pharmacy like walmart, cvs, by prescription. Methyl B12 does have to be compounded.
