I will be interested in hearing about this too. I take B12 shots weekly. I already know that sublingual is out for me, doesn't help me as much as the shots do. I have also heard there is a B12 patch.

I asked my doctor about this last year and was told that most patients tend to be non-compliant with the nasal B12 because its a bit nasty. Not really sure about the absorbency, but if you don't take it, you can't absorb it. He thought I was better off staying with the shots. I just feel bad because my husband has to give them to me and he always feels bad when he has to jab me. I keep telling him, I'm a Chronie I can take it, but he just can't stand to 'hurt' me.

Wouldn't you know it that the solution to shots is 'a bit nasty'. I'll bet coming from a Dr. thats like a bit pregnant!
