I was prescribed the latter for a lack of energy (I wanted Ritalin).

Should I bin them or not?

Mecobalamin is a common misspelling of methylcobalamin (get you back Smile), one of several forms of vitamin B12. Methylcobalamin is the coenzyme form of vitamin B-12, which means your body can use it without requiring extra steps to transform it into a usable substance. Methylcobalamin is used to treat a number of diseases and deficiencies, and there are multiple benefits that come with taking methylcobalamin. Namely: Sleep disorders, Vitamin B defficiencies and Anemia. I am going to guess and say you fall into Vit B defficient?
So,

Taking methylcobalamin can also help if you have a vitamin B deficiency disorder. Since methylcobalamin can be instantly used by your body instead of having to convert it into a more usable form, you can feel the effects of it more quickly than other vitamin B forms. Some of the symptoms of vitamin B deficiency that methylcobalamin can help alleviate include--but are not limited to--the following: tiredness, decreased mental capacity, memory loss and memory problems, inability to concentrate, irritability, depression, sores in the corner of your mouth, shortness of breath, and a sharp stabbing pain in the palm of your hands.

You may want to look into VitB shots ATM


It is among the cobalamin family of compounds, and as the properly spelled name attests, it contains an attached methyl group. It is naturally produced by bacteria and is often present in the human body at low levels. It also has pharmaceutical applications in the treatment of a number of conditions, and is clinically relevant in the case of patients with Arakawa's syndrome II, a metabolic disorder characterized by the inability to metabolize mecobalamin.

Vitamin B12 is an important vitamin for the human body. This water-soluble compound plays a role in neurological function, and is also involved in the process of producing blood. Mecobalamin can be used in the treatment of anemia when a patient has a B12 deficiency, and it is also employed in the care of patients with neurological disorders. Neuropathy, where the peripheral nervous system does not function normally and patients experience numbness, tingling, and other symptoms, can be treated with mecobalamin. The drug is also used in the early treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

In patients with Arakawa's syndrome II, mecobalamin in the body cannot be adequately processed. This leads to neurological deficiencies, as the nervous system and brain are not able to access the B12 they need. Patients can experience a variety of problems related to the nervous system, ranging from gastrointestinal distress related to poorly functioning nerves in the gut to learning disabilities associated with interruptions in brain function.

Vitamin B12 is found in:

•Eggs
•Fortified foods such as soymilk
•Meat
•Milk and milk products
•Organ meats (liver and kidney)
•Poultry
•Shellfish
The body absorbs animal sources of vitamin B12 much better than plant sources. Non-animal sources of vitamin B12 vary in their amount of B12. They are not thought to be reliable sources of the vitamin.

The best way to meet your body's vitamin B12 needs is to eat a wide variety of animal products.

For people who do not eat animal products, vitamin B12 can be found in:

•Almost all multivitamins. Vitamin B12 is better absorbed by the body when it is taken along with other B vitamins, such as niacin, riboflavin, vitamin B6, and magnesium.
•A form of vitamin B12 can be given by injection.
•Another prescription form of vitamin B12 is a nasal gel (for use in the nose).
•Vitamin B12 is also available in a form that dissolves under the tongue (sublingual), but the multivitamin pill form works as well.



Dietary Reference Intakes for vitamin B12:



Adolescents and Adults

•Males and females age 14 and older: 2.4 mcg/day

Eleminate what is not true, like asking your fiancee

You went to the doctor to get Ritalin, not to be cured?
