The Living Force
monotonic said:Thanks. I hope it does calm down over time because it can be dangerous. It's one of those deceptive states of mind where you feel great and it just seems like everyone else is an idiot and you need to start breaking things and you have bizarre fantasies. And after it has passed the feeling good part seems to persist without the irritation. I'll reduce the dose, and maybe some NAC will also help.
When I first started taking methylcobalamin, I did experience intermittent bouts of anxiety, which may or may not have been related to either it or to the experience you're describing. I was supplementing with S-acetyl glutathione (mentioned in the excerpt RedFox posted above) at the same time, so this may have blunted the effects if they were related to the B12 (so NAC here would be good). It eventually calmed down, and I noticed real progress after doing a heavy metal detox for awhile. I don't really notice any difference at this point and I still take it regularly, although I do agree with LQB that it's better to take it in the morning rather than before bed. If this is your first time taking it, I agree it's good to reduce the dose for now and supplement with anything that will bolster your detox pathways. Also try to read (and/or watch videos) as much as you can about the body chemistry involved and possible side effects -- not everyone responds the same way to methylcobalamin, and the same person can be affected in different ways at different times depending on the circumstances.
