Default b-12

I haven't been able to remember dreams for years. Then I started B vitamins. I assume it's B-12. I have long, involved dreams, remember them much better, and unfortunately some highly disturbing dreams. I am curious about this now that it's been shown B-12 may delay dementia. Is there any research going on about this?

Shocked Wow!

For the last two nights I've experienced incredibly disturbing nightmares with full recall. I didn't realize it at the time, but I had given myself an intramuscular B12 injection the afternoon before these dreams began to occur. I would say there is very likely a correlation between B12 and nightmares. Very insightful!

Anyone had anything similar?
I was diagnosed with low B12 and was told to supplement.

Since childhood I did not remember my dreams. I was about 30 when I started B12 and depending on my dosage and method of administration I will range from remembering my dreams to vivid dreams. Nightmares and generally anxiety-inducing dreams are certainly a problem at times, but I think the B12 enhances dreaming and so it's more your natural tendency coming through rather than the B12 causing specifically bad dreams. Why you're having nightmares is probably a separate issue.

Hi

I was diagnosed with low B12 a few years ago and was on a course of B12 injections with no issues at all. Having said that apart from my blood test results changing nothing else happened. Last time I went to the doctor I asked if there was another way of taking B12 and he advised a mouth spray. I started the mouth spray a few days ago and OMG have i had some strange and not very pleasant dreams over the last couple of nights

Default There have been some anecdotal reports--

--of people taking high doses of B vitamins saying that they've had more vivid dreams than previously, though to my knowledge there hasn't been any correlation with the mode in which they've been taking them--just a connection with the higher dosages.

I never associated taking B12 with dreams, and I've been taking B12 for probably 20 yrs give or take. Yes to the more vivid dreams with Melatonin, HGH.

Melatonin was not good for me, or the dose amount was too high for me..
