How does Dibencozide work?

Dibencozide is a form of vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is important in chemical reactions throughout the body. However, dibencozide is not as stable as cyanocobalamin, the form of vitamin B12 most often found in vitamin tablets, and may break down during storage.

Are there safety concerns?

Dibencozide seems to be safe for most people. There are no reported side effects.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about the use of dibencozide during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Gastrointestinal (GI) conditions: Some GI conditions, such as ileal disease or surgical removal of part of the intestine, can reduce that amount of Vitamin B12, including dibencozide, that is absorbed from the intestine.
