Skinny Shot Injection Consent Form

  • "Skinny Shots" (B12 w/ Lipotropic) Injections Informed Consent

    Vitamin B-12 with Lipotropic helps maintain good health and has been shown to be beneficial in helping to: reduce stress, fatigue, improve memory, and cardiovascular health, and maintain a good body weight. It can also assist the body in converting proteins, fats, and carbohydrates into energy and is necessary for healthy skin and eyes.

    B12 injections are better absorbed by the body once they go directly into the blood stream. Alternatives to B12 injections are oral vitamins, B12 patch, lozenges, liquid drops, and nasal spray.

    B12 injections common side effects include but are not limited to:

    1. Risks: I understand there is a risk of mild diarrhea, upset stomach, nausea, a feeling of pain and a warm sensation at the site of the injection, a feeling, or a sense, of being swollen over the entire body, headache, and joint pain.

    2. If any of these side effects become severe or troublesome I will contact my physician immediately.

    3. I understand that although rare vitamin B12 injections can result in serious side effects. Although this is a relatively rare occurence, anyone taking vitamin B12 should be aware of the possibility. Uncommon side effects are much more serious than the common side effects of B12 injections, and such side effects should be reported to a physician to be evaluated for seriousness.

    4. Before starting vitamin B12 injections I will make sure to tell my physician and not perform the injection if I am pregnant, lactating or have any of the following conditions:
