Eligen B12 is for people with clinically low B12 levels. It is a once-daily oral treatment that normalizes B12 levels without inconvenient injections.
People with dangerously low B12 levels don’t need injections to return B12 levels to normal. Eligen B12 has a special technology that makes sure your body gets the B12 it needs by taking a pill just once a day.
In many people with low B12 levels, vitamin B12 supplements aren’t enough. If your doctor has recommended other B12 therapies, it could be because your digestive system doesn’t absorb the B12 very well through your diet or oral supplements.
If you’re someone who doesn’t absorb vitamin B12 well, over-the-counter vitamin B12 pills are not enough to bring your B12 up to a normal level.
Eligen B12™ is indicated for the dietary management of patients who have a diagnosed vitamin B12 deficiency that cannot be managed by a modification of the normal diet alone. This deficiency can be caused by a range of conditions in which there is an impaired capacity to absorb vitamin B12.
You should not take Eligen B12™ if you are allergic to vitamin B12, cobalt, or any ingredient of Eligen B12™.
You should not take Eligen B12™ if you have Leber’s disease, which your doctor may refer to as hereditary optic nerve atrophy. Cyanocobalamin can lead to optic nerve damage (and possibly blindness) in people with Leber’s disease.
Before using Eligen B12™, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you:
Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of a serious reaction: muscle cramps, weakness or irregular heartbeat, hives, difficulty breathing, swelling of your face, lips, tongue or throat.
Call your doctor at once if you have a serious side effect, such as feeling short of breath, even with mild exertion, sudden vision changes or slurred speech.
Less serious side effects may include diarrhea, itching or rash.
Before using Eligen B12™ tell your doctor or pharmacist all of the medicines you are taking, especially methotrexate, pyrimethamine, any antibiotics, and any vitamins.
