Default We have our own hard-won expertise at Neurotalk--

--through Mrs. D and Rose, who post at various boards.

Rose is in the process of building a massive B12 website, with exhaustive citations. It's a work in progress, but can be reached at:


There are also a lot of links through the Vitamins/Mineral/Supplements forum here:

Lightbulb also...

Chemo induced neuropathies should try l-carnitine or acetyl-l-carnitine.

B12 does not work alone... you need fish oil, folic acid and B6 to help
with nerve healing from damage due to drugs/radiation/chemo.

There is an RX vitamin called Metanx which has all 3 in it. You would have to
provide your own fish oil.

This raccoon has come out yesterday since the snow recently melted and can't decide which cherry tomato to eat first. Hubby put them on the feeding bench yesterday morning. (he doesn't like them). They were all gone by this morning.

Default Thanks, MrsD!

Thanks so much for the chemo induced PN info.

I learn so much from you!

I take the Source Naturals Advanced B12 Complex it has:

Advanced B-12 Complex™ combines the two active, coenzymated forms of vitamin B-12 - methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin (dibencozide) - with folic acid. Vitamin B-12 is required for normal growth, cell reproduction, myelin and nucleoprotein synthesis, and the formation of red blood cells. Coenzyme supplementation bypasses the body's need to synthesize the active forms of vitamin B-12 from cyanocobalamin.*

That takes care of the horrible pain (from surgery) that goes from my outer knee to hip (like thousands of stabbing hot needles). (I do a separate B-complex and fish oil.

I still get the burning feet from chemo even after a couple of years. I will
definitely try the l-carnitine. In fact it has been bothering me worse the past few days (it's not usually constant).

THANK YOU!!!!!! (Also, my sincere thanks & prayers for everyone who adds information on this board-whether a question or responses! I rarely post, but I read often.)
