Hi!
If you have vitamin B12 deficiency then your PCP or family doctor can give you this shot. First you will need to undergo a blood test. If your vitamin B12 levels are normal then no registered doctor will give you vitamin B12 shots for weight loss purpose. There are no scientific studies which prove that vitamin B12 helps in weight loss. Yes, for those deficient in vitamin B12, it may help boost metabolism and shed weight. Please consult your doctor regarding this.
Excess vitamin B12 by itself will not cause any harm over a short period of time. You could ask a pharmacist in your area to help you regarding this. However, if you take this over a long period of time, then there is some risk of deep vein thrombosis, and it may interfere with metabolism of some drugs. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
