I've been taking the B12 before bed, following instructions. Can't locate the instructions. It may have been in the Fatigue health book, which I read at the bookstore. Or was it Aging? At any rate, I saw it someplace that I thought was reputable.
The most well studied use of methylcobalamin has to do with sleep. Although the exact mechanism of action is not yet clear, it is possible that methylcobalamin is needed for the synthesis of melatonin. Available information indicates that methylcobalamin can modulate melatonin secretion, enhance light-sensitivity, and normalize circadian rhythm (your 24-hour clock).

And thanks from me, too, Lloyd. Glad I didn't just imagine that somewhere!
I've been taking my B12 before bed for many months, and it's really helped my sleep. I was also afraid it would keep me awake, but for some reason, unlike the other B vitamins, it works to make sleep very peaceful.
