Ampoules are preferably injected intramuscularly (deep intragluteal). In severe cases 1 ampoule daily until the acute symptoms subside. For milder cases and follow up therapy 2 to 3 ampoules per week.
Generally well tolerated. However, a few allergic reactions may be seen.
Cyanocobalamin should not be given before a diagnosis has been fully established because of the possibility of masking symptoms of subacute degeneration of the spinal cord. Cyanocobalamin is not a suitable form of Vitamin B12 for the treatment of optic neuropathies associated with raised plasma concentrations of cyanocobalamin.
Oral tablet form is recommended but injectable preparation is not recommended due to presence of benzyl alcohol.
