Brief Answer:
mecobalamin and vitB12 are the same

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to healthcare magic.
You do not need oral Vit B12 while you are on monthly injection of the same.
Later when you are off injection B12 then oral supplement will be needed.
Vit.D deficiency needs to be treated with proper supplement which can be taken in weekly doses orally.
Supradyn can be taken as usual because it's a dietary supplement dose combination of multivitamins.
Treatment for high cholesterol should be continued.
I hope the advise will be helpful for you.
