Hi Faith! I'm like Zuzu. I thik U should check with your Hematologist.Seems like I mentioned something to mine about taking a daily vitamin and he said I really shouldn't because components of multiple vitamins build iron and iron builds red blood cells.So;I'm not really sure about the B-12.Being PV we want to stay anemic.
I was diagnosed in 2000 and had symtoms back to 1994;but,didn't really know what was wrong with me! Good Luck & God Bless
Stay on top of the PV!!!!
