    Without an RX? I got mine years ago from McGuff's compounding pharmacy. I got 10,000 mcg/per ML.

    I'm not sure if you would need an RX. You do in the US.

    Can you get syringes?

    @heapsreal

    It is easy to get in the States--with a prescription--but only one idea for those in Aust. Most compounding pharmacies here can provide the dilution you ask for.

    But I only know of one that will take "foreign" prescriptions: http://www.hopewellrx.com/ They will take European prescriptions but I haven't asked them about Australia

    Hi,

    Not sure I understand your question. What do you mean by "ordinary B12 IM?" What type of B12 and what dose are you referring to?

    Best,

    Ally lower volume of injection for higher dose, generally if it comes in a multi dose vial it should be cheaper.
    Here we can get 1mg/ml so to get 5mg will need 5mls. So if I can get the 5mg/1ml the volume is lower and should cost less.

    I think it was an old Cheney treatment where 5mg 3times a week was used and this helps lower peroxynitrate and inflammation. I use to use b12 injections as apart of my crash formula, I think it helped some??

    Cheney used to like 10,000 mcg/ml of hydroxy because it was supposed to cross the blood brain barrier.

    The red cyano is made from cyanide and doesn't do much per him.

    thanks Heaps

    neo b12 def helps me a lot
    esp helps me to sleep and stops the polyuria and polydipsia - they both return about 10 days after the shot

    Yes, that is what I get and then I can do a small volume injection. It is pretty cheap here. I think I paid about $35 for my last 30 ml vial. They seem to charge about the same for 30 mls no matter what the dilution.

    Most US pharmacies can't ship outside the US but Hopewell can--at least to Europe--I didn't ask about anywhere else.

    They may not list prescription items on their websites--most US pharmacies don't. But they have it cause I asked for a patient in Europe. They would accept a European prescription (had to have the doc's license # I think) and would ship to Europe.
