Why Betawin Forte is given along with vitamin B 12?

Dr. Rahul Poddar MBBS, DNB, MBBS, DNB , General Surgery

This is because a long-term use of Betawin Forte can cause Vitamin B12 deficiency. Stomach acids help in the absorption of Vitamin B 12, and this drug suppresses stomach acid which is required for the absorption of vitamin B12.
