B12 Sublingual Dosage Help Needed

Hi people, does anyone take B12 sublingual? My doctor says to take it but doesn't guide me as to how much. Can anyone help me on this subject, please? Many thanks.

Hi... I have an ileostomy and take B12 sublingual every day. Never had a problem with my B12. Blood tests always show good levels.

Hi Tin,

Yup......I take B12 sub everyday. There's dosage instructions on the box, but I take about half the eyedropper's worth each morning. Just make sure to put it under the front of your tongue and give it a minute to be absorbed before you eat or drink something. It tastes fine, so no bad taste to worry about either. I buy the Super Source brand on Amazon and it costs like $10 a bottle. If you have any other q's just shout!

Yes, I take B Complex (with B12) sublingual everyday, because the doctor said with colostomy I'd need it. For 4 years, so far so good, no issues!
