5 Point Comments - It Helped Me a Lot

Methylcobalamine has helped my cognition enormously! I can read again (short stories or a novel over a while) whereas before I had been unable to read even an average length online article in one go. I take 5000mcg/day. And I have had no side effects. It's miraculous.

Twice daily injections hydroxocabolamin 1mg. No negative side effects as long as I keep potassium up and take 10mg folic acid daily to partner the high dose.

I use 2 x 1000 mg methylcobalamin sublingual tablets on/off when I have a extra painful day. I have tried using it on request daily basis but that has no effect. Now I use 2000 mg 1-2 times every two weeks

With methyl B12 can come a slight over stimulation, and an increase in the wired but tired feeling, which in turn can burn you out sooner. You may think there is an improvement, but in the end you're driving yourself out of fuel sooner. For many people I think it will do more harm than good.

There is a mixed opinion on whether or not people with CFS should be taking methyl B12 and methylfolate, and I've taken it for a few years to come to an understanding that it isn't good... or at least isn't for me. It's important to do whatever works for you, and to resist people telling you that any negative effects from it are actually good. Otherwise there is no way to weigh whether or not it is helping, if any effect (positive or negative) is assumed part of the process.

It's also important to weigh whether or not the B12 is what is helping by separating it from your other supplements. It may be that any benefits are actually coming from other supplements you are taking, which you may assume to be the B12.
