Insert leaflet

Betolvex® injection is a vitamin B12 tannin complex suspended in  sesame oil-aluminium monostearate gel. Vitamin B12 is gradually released from the site of injection over a long period, simultaneously replenishing the stores in the liver. It is well established that injections of aqueous solutions of vitamin B12 bring about a short-lasting rise in the serum level, without providing surplus vitamin B12 for replenishing body stores. As the treatment of a deficiency disease can only be considered satisfactory when the patient's physiological condition becomes completely normal, the Dumex research laboratories have developed a vitamin B12 preparation with prolonged action.


In the prophylaxis and therapy of pernicious anaemia and other conditions with vitamin B12 deficiency. Examples of such conditions are: Total gastrectomy, which is always accompanied by hypovitaminosis. Vitamin B12 hypovitaminosis with macrocytic anaemia and/or neuropathy.

  •  After gastric resection
  •  After ileocoecal resection and proctocolectorny
  •  In sprue and symptomatic steatorrhoea
  •  In surgery after intestinal shunt for adipositas
  •  With inadequate nutrition, where the cause is malnutrition or unsuitable diet, particularly in the case of elderly people who often suffer from  atrophic gastritis, and vegetarians whose diet is entirely lacking animal protein.


In conditions where stores are presumed to be depleted (pernicious anaemia, gastrectomy): One intramuscular injection of 1 ml of Beto!vex® every week for 4 weeks. Thereafter 1 ml of Betolvex® every 3 months. Otherwise: 1 ml of Betolvex® every 3 months
