It seems like ever since I've been taking it, I've been feeling a little anxious and jittery. It does help with energy levels but the other morning, I felt like I had caffeine going through my arms and my legs. It lasted for 4-5 hours and felt horrible. Maybe I'm taking them too late.

Anyone else experience this?

What time of day are you taking the injections? I get this from Cyanocobolamin and Hydroxocobolamin, but not from the Methylcobolamin. Also, you might consider asking your doctor about Hydroxocobolamin, could be you do better with a different version of B12. Some people with mercury problems or overmethylaters may not be able to handle the methyl-B12.

I've been taking it about 5 or 6 in the evening because my days and nights are messed up....again. Every month I get like this for about a week. I'm sure it's probably way too late to take it. I really like the energy it's been giving me though. I haven't had this much energy in years. I think I will keep trying it and see what happens. Soon, I will only have to take it on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays so that will be better. I'm glad to know that someone else experienced this too.

Yeah could be too late in the day, maybe try taking the injection in the morning instead. Might be interesting to see if you can feel when the B12 shot "kicks in" - timing how long it takes for this to happen after getting the shot may help you figure out the best time of day to get your shot. And it may change over time once you've been getting the shots for a while. I have had to switch the time of day to get the shot sometimes - sometimes early morning was best, sometimes late night was better. And you may also find a reduction in dose may be needed after you've been on it a while. I went from 1000mcg down to 500mcg after taking the shots for the better part of a year.

Good luck,
