Taking Methycobal (Vitamin B12) as a supplement

I want to take a B12 supplement and the tablet I have is MECOBALAMIN (methycobal) 500 mcg, I have the following questions :-

a) is methycobal 500mcg suitable?
b) is this the same as Vitamin B12?
c) is it the same as methylcobal? (note the L)
d) is it too much/too little?
e) can I take it daily (and for how long is recommended)?
f) what are the side effects?
g) what is 500mcg in iu? (it doesnt say on the packet)

My local doctor is in the process of moving his practice therefore I cant take a test to see my Vit B12 levels, but I will get this test dome as soon as he is up and running.

Thanks in advance for your help.
