Hi dear.I were to give Viteurin injections(contains 1500mcg of B12) 5 inj injections every alternate day.Followed by one injection weekly for one month; followed by one injection monthly for one year;followed by yearly once.Hope this answers your query.Oral supplement cannot replenish the deficit levels quickly.Hope this answers your query.
