Brief Answer:
Need b 12 supplements for both

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I am Dr Mittal. I have read your query. I think I would be able to help you.

The fact remains that the vitamin B 12 deficiency can be recovered by vitamin B 12 supplements. There are many brands for this- becosule, cobadex etc. If you tell me the exact levels, I may be able to tell you the required dosing. I usually suggest a dose of twice a day followed by once s day for a month each.

As for libido, often vit b 12 deficiencies can cause it too. So I would suggest that you complete the replacement of vitamin B 12 before considering other medicines.

I have tried to make it as simple as possible. I hope that the information helps you. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
Best of luck
Dr Mittal.
