Thanks for posting your query. I am happy to address your questions. Vitcofol injection contains folic acid 15 mg, nicotinamide 200 mg,vitamin B12 500 mcg etc. mainly so yes it is used in several condition like anemias and can be also used when deficient Red Blood Cell production, iron deficit, vit. B12 deficit, bone marrow failure, haemolysis of RBC etc. so injection has supplementary Vitb12 to treat anemia. As your blood levels are quite low will recommend you to kindly continue the injections. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be happy to help. Thanks
