Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

Are you asking if your levels are high?

The recommended dosage of B12 is about 2.4 mcg per day, therefore 5000 mcg is excessive. However, the body generally rids itself of too much B12 through urine out-take so it's not dangerous.

If taking a 5000 mcg supplement you can take far less daily or take one supplement weekly.
