Has Anyone Tried the Vitamin B12 Patch recently?


I am wondering if anyone has tried a vitamin B12 patch for chronic fatigue syndrome? If so, i am wondering what brand you tried and where the results were.

I have seen other posts in the Anemia healthboard, but it has been a while since I have seen it on this one.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Re: Has Anyone Tried the Vitamin B12 Patch recently?

Not sure that I'll be of any help.... But since no one else has replied, I will give you my experience (as limited as it is!)

I started the patches a month ago due to low levels of B12.
I've been living with symptoms for 12 years now, so probably too early to see any results from them.
I have been using Health Plus patches that I ordered off of Amazon. 1,000 mcg of B12 - 400 mcg of Folic Acid.

I will be switching to injections soon. The only things that I don't like about the patches (Maybe because it's summer and sweltering down here in the deep south!!) is that they will slip off when wet (pool / shower) and when any sweat accumulates under them.
Also, I would recommend that you clean the area where you plan on sticking the patch with an alcohol wipe before placing it. This will help it stick much better.
I place mine on my inner wrist and replace every 2 days (if they stick that long).

It was winter, I probably wouldn't have too many issues with them staying in place... But ... Summer in Ga... Just not working well for me.

Wish I could share more info on whether or not they work well... Just too early to know.
