      NASCOBAL® NASAL SPRAY

      What is NASCOBAL® nasal spray?

      NASCOBAL® (Cyanocobalamin, USP) Nasal Spray is a prescription medicine used as a supplement to treat vitamin B12 deficiency. People who have had bariatric (weight loss) surgery may not absorb enough vitamin B12 from food. That is why NASCOBAL® is a good option. It is a fine-mist nasal spray that gets absorbed directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the stomach and digestive tract. It is odorless and tasteless.

      NASCOBAL® dosing is simple:

      1 spray, 1 nostril, 1x a week

      patient-nascobal-spray

      • Once-weekly nasal spray
      • Fewer visits to the doctor’s office for vitamin B12 dose

      SOME TIPS TO HELP YOU REMEMBER TO TAKE YOUR VITAMINS

      It can be easy to forget to take your vitamins and minerals. Here are some reminders to help keep you on track:

      • Set an alarm. Most phones have them. Be sure to set yours so you will remember when it is time to take your vitamins. If you wear a watch, set the alarm so you will remember to take your vitamins when you are away from the house
      • Remind yourself with notes, diaries, or checklists. Post a calendar or a Post-it® note where you will see it. You can also make a “to-do” list so you will always remember
      • Keep the bottles of your nutritional supplements in a place where you will see them easily. This way, you will remember to take them as your healthcare provider prescribes. But make sure that they are out of the reach of children
      • Have a support network. Ask a friend or family member to remind you by phone or text

      IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR NASCOBAL®

      Do not use NASCOBAL® if you are allergic to cobalt, vitamin B12, or any of the ingredients in NASCOBAL®.

      NASCOBAL® can cause serious side effects, including:

      • Weakening of your eye nerve in patients with early Leber's disease. Tell your healthcare provider if you or your family has a history of early Leber's disease.
      • Serious allergic reactions. Serious, life-threatening allergic reactions, including death, have happened in people who have received vitamin B12 by injection or by intravenous (IV) infusion (parenteral). Tell your healthcare provider if you have ever had a reaction after you received vitamin B12 by injection or IV infusion.
      • Hiding (masking) a folate deficiency. Your healthcare provider may do certain blood tests to check your vitamin B12 and folate levels.
      • Low potassium levels (hypokalemia) and low blood platelets (thrombocytopenia) can happen in people with serious megaloblastic anemia. Your healthcare provider may monitor your potassium levels and platelet counts during your treatment with NASCOBAL®.

      Vitamin B12 deficiency may hide signs of a blood condition called polycythemia vera. Treatment with NASCOBAL® may uncover this condition.

      Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant (it is not known if NASCOBAL® will harm your unborn baby).

      Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.

      The most common side effects include infection, headache, feeling weak, nausea, swelling of your tongue, runny nose, tingling of the hands and feet.

      These are not all the possible side effects of NASCOBAL®. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

      WHAT IS NASCOBAL®?

      NASCOBAL® (Cyanocobalamin, USP) Nasal Spray is a prescription medicine used to treat vitamin B12 deficiency caused by lack of absorption (malabsorption) that is not related to pernicious anemia.

      NASCOBAL® should not be used for a vitamin B12 absorption test known as the Schilling test.

      In people who have corrected or have fixed their short-term causes of vitamin B12 deficiency, the benefit of continued long-term use of NASCOBAL® is not known after vitamin B12 deficiency has been corrected.

      It is not known if NASCOBAL® is effective in people who currently have a stuffy nose, allergies or an upper respiratory infection. You should wait until these symptoms have gone away before using NASCOBAL®.

      It is not known if NASCOBAL® is safe and effective in children.
