Default How to take B complex?

I want to take B Complex, but I can't seem to take it without a terrible burp that goes on for most of the day along with a sickish feeling for the whole time. Is there a form I can take that won't do this to me or does anyone have a hint to make the effect less?

Tonight I made a smoothie of chocolate egg protein and drank it and perhaps it will help, but I'm beginning to burp it again. And, I can't have one every night!

Any wisdom out there?

I take the Beees in the morning followed by breakfast. Seems to keep that from happening

For me, swallowing a Super B-Complex pill is a waste of a pill to begin with. I have to dissolve the pill in my mouth and keep it in my mouth for 10 minutes to absorb anything. It does taste bad but I would rather do that than take a vitamin B shot 3 times a day ( in my body B vitamins are flushed out in 6 hours ).

I give my mother in law a shot of b-complex every week. It is super easy to do and not expensive. Might want to look into it although you may not beed it weekly.

I just started a new multi that is more loaded with B's than my old multi and a super B complex together were, costly, but it looks like I'll be dropping a couple of other supplements I am taking on the side to help offset some of the added cost.

I give my daughter a formulation called B-50 -- high dose B's (there is also a B-100). It even stinks in the bottle! She gets one at night, with her BIGGEST meal. No real complaints, thankfully. She would not tolerate shots.

I may give the shots some thought as I've given myself shots for B12 in the past...no big deal and the once a week could save me the burps. I stood up outta bed this morning and was greeted by one which didn't make the day start off so well. I'll discuss this with my endo whom I think I'll see this month...if memory serves me right.

Maybe I don't really need it...

I've been taking a liquid B complex when I remember. I just ordered a B-complex patch, which I'm going to try. I woulnd't mind taking shots,k but I don't think my doctor would prescribe or do the tests for a deficiency.
