I would go with 500mcgs ed. I was shooting 1000mcgs a couple of weeks ago and had troubles sleeping, 500 is enough.

500mcgs is right for INJECTABLE b-12. I read somewhere that only 10%-20% of oral b-12 gets used by your body the rest is just pissed out.

About the B-12
I'll post what I wrote to Huesos05....
From everything that I've heard and researched, I guess supplemental B-12 isn't abosrbed well throught natual consumption. I've done the vitamin b-12 shots myself. I was doing between 1-2 ml of the injection every other day or so. Each ml=1,000 mcg's. However, I never really noticed an increase in my appetite.
As crazy as it might sound, I bought it through a vet supply store. You have to have a prescription for it, and from everything I could tell, and from what I read, the vitamin is the same for animals and humans, just require different amounts, obviously.
Here is a link, that explains the importance of B vitamins on muscle performance. http://www.abcbodybuilding.com/maga...minbcomplex.htm
The main reason I started doing the injections, was because I found that I was fatigued a lot, and thought it might have been due to poor absorption of vitamin b-12 in my diet. I didn't notice a real difference, however. On the flip side though, since you already have the pills, I'd say just take them, it won't be dangerous, since you nearly can't over dose on b-12. I'm say take them, in large quanitities and see if it makes any difference. I wouldn't worry for one second if the quantity of vitamin b-12 you have in the pills is too much, I think you'd be lucky to get 500mcg's out of it.
