If you use the injected form of cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12) and it is administered to you by a health care professional, it will be stored at the office or clinic. If you use the injected form and administer it to yourself, you will receive vials and syringes (with needles) from the pharmacy. These should be stored at room temperature, away from heat and moisture, away from freezing temperatures, and out of the reach of children and pets.

The tablet and nasal gel forms of cyanocobalamin should be stored at room temperature away from moisture and heat, so do not store in a bathroom or near ovens or stoves. Do not allow it to freeze. Keep cyanocobalamin nasal gel in the same carton in which you received it from the pharmacist. Keep it where children cannot reach. Discard if the medication has expired.
