Why Betasal is given along with vitamin B 12?

Dr. Rahul Poddar MBBS, DNB, MBBS, DNB , General Surgery

This is because a long-term use of Betasal can cause Vitamin B12 deficiency. Stomach acids help in the absorption of Vitamin B 12, and this drug suppresses stomach acid which is required for the absorption of vitamin B12. Hence patients taking Betasal for a long time have Vitamin B12 deficiency. To replenish Vitamin B12 in your body your doctor prescribes this vitamin along with this medicine.
