Brief Answer:
Various brands

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,I have gone through your question and understand the concerns. Vitamin B 12 supplementation should be done by injections.
Various brands like Vitcofol are available. The dosage is initially one ml daily for a week followed by weekly for 4 weeks, and then monthly for 4-5 months.
This will correct the deficiency and improve the symptoms.
However, I will suggest you to get him examined by a neurologist before giving him injections , in order to rule out any other pathology.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
