Methycobal is a brand product that contains Methylcobalamin, which is the active form of vitamin B12 (a water-soluble vitamin). It has an important role in normal metabolic function, neuronal protection, and red blood cell production. Vitamin B12 deficiency usually occurs in patients with malabsorption problems or with a strict vegetarian diet, which may lead to some forms of anemia.
Methycobal tablet is indicated for the treatment of peripheral neuropathies, while Methycobal injection is used to treat both peripheral neuropathies and megaloblastic anemia (due to vitamin B12 deficiency).
