Keep trying.  We only recommend B12 shots in Parkinson's disease if the B12 level is low.  Extra Vitamin C is safe but not sure it will help the alertness.

I was thinking of getting the nature made melts with B-12 for energy.  I read on your website that people with PD need extra B-12 so even though my mom's blood test showed normal range she can and should still take it right?    Does extra B-12 really work?  For me I get the jitters when I take it but I'm the hyper type so I think it's not good for me.

Not sure I would recommend high B12 if levels are well within the normal range.   I would suggest you discuss with your doctor.
