What medicine should I take for deficiency of Vitamin B3 and Vitamin B12 ?

Age-29 Gender: Male I am suffering with burning of my feet (leg) and I have no appetite since my childhood as a result am too thin (i.e 46 kg), I feel tired even after taking long time sleep and now from day to day my memory ability decreases. When I was checked in hospital out of my country the Doctor investigate that the problem is deficiency of Vitamin B-12 and vitamin B-3 consequently they gave medicine Methycobal and centrum but I got serious headache and dizziness when I started the medicine and I can’t continue taking of the these medicines. The problem is I can’t get the doctor who prescribed the medicine b/c now I returned back to my country. So what you suggest me…. Furthermore, another Doctor gave me Nurokind medicine and I am taking it which will be taken for one year one tablet per day (now two weeks elapsed since I started this medicine) but it couldn’t give relief for the problem. Hence, by considering my problem please give me your suggestion as soon as possible. If there is any medicine which can give me solutions please tell me….

Hi! I was diagnosed with b12 deficiency last year and had to take injections to boost levels. I have a very well balanced diet and eat lots of meat and dairy. One year later, I have numbness of the toe and also suffer rapid mood changes. My girlfriend suggested I get retested. My b12 level was 242. My question is, if I was so deficient once with a good balanced diet, does that mean my IF is low? And does it mean that I should always take b12 supplements to ensure it does not drop again? Thank you so much for your help!

HI,

I'm 28 yr old female, i have hair fall problem from past 3 to 4 years. My hair started thinning only in the front. I used several lotions like ervamatine, hair for u, for some days it was fine & later it gave me side effects like dandruff skin problems like acne. Recently i consulted a dermatologist where she asked me to take thyroid, blood test & ultra sound ( abdomon) all the tests was fine for me except for deficiency in Vitamin B12 & vitamin D. I was prescribed with Anaphase shampoo & neoptide spray. I'm still worried if this would solve my problem. Will neoptide spray has any side effects before i go ahead & use i wanted to be 100% sure. If i have to use them should i sue these products for life long?Please advise.
