  1. Vitamin B12 deficiency is MUCH more common than most people realize. The culprit is our bodies’ inability to effectively absorb vitamin b12 through our stomach linings…this is also why orally ingested supplements fall short…only 4% of the vitamin makes it into our blood. That’s why I started taking b12 injections (and patches) several years ago and am glad i did:

  2. Vitamin B ( and D ) has really helped my depression and anxiety. It went from what I would call severe to moderate. It’s definitely worth trying?

    • Excuse me, I meant “worth a try!”

    • I just wanted to know if the b vitamins you are taking are a complex or B12 alone. I am presently suffering from a withdrawal from paxil with severe nausea and vertigo. This is my second attempt at withdrawing from paxil as I ended up in the hospital with the above mentioned symptoms on the last attempt. This time around I have decreased the paxil at a slow rate of 5 mg per week under a doctors supervision. My doc has also begun vitamin b12 injections at my request to ease the depression which was very severe. It has helped somewhat with the depression but I am now down to 3 mg of paxil daily and the nausea and vertigo have begun again. I am a little scared as I don;t really know if I am ever going to be able to get of paxil even though it no longer even helps with the depression what so ever. Any help from your experiences would be greatly appreciated.
