    This seems to be one of the more popular supplements recommended. Has anyone found relief from B12? What are the typical dosages recommended?

    I take B12 now sometimes that I'm no longer drinking caffeine (I figure it probably would make my symptoms worse). The supplements I take have 83,000% of my DV and I'll occasionally take 2. If you do take B12, get the "Methyl" variety; that's the best one. I think people might recommend it because a B12 deficiency can cause all sorts of weird symptoms, and a lot of people can be B12 deficient. I was totally convinced I would have low B12 so I got the blood work done... and it turns out my B12 levels are normal to high, haha. That being said, American standards of normal are low in a lot of other countries (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitamin_B12_deficiency - see "Diagnosis").

    Having a B12 complex every couple of days to supplement my diet has been invaluable. I wouldn't say it has much of an effect on my VS but it deals with anxiety and depression very well which in turn goes a long way in helping one live with VS.
    I have also tried almost every kind available on the market (at least in NZ that is). I have learnt that there is a huge difference between synthetically generated supplements and naturally fermented B12 on the market. I would thoroughly recommend taking the latter. I use a "Max B-ND" by Premier Research Labs - made in Texas. I sure there are others though. This product suggests taking 1.25ml of the solution everyday but I find that taking between 4-8 drops in a glass of water every 2 - 3 days is sufficient but I am fairly sensitive.
