Thankfully, it's essentially impossible to overdose on vitamin B12. There's no reason to induce emesis or treat in any manner. The vitamin B complex is water soluble and any excess is urinated away. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish. (The tablets contained 3000 micrograms of B12.)
