B12 Injectable

Does anyone know if it is possible to purchase B12 injectable at the Pharmacia? If so, what would one ask for. I find it easier if you have an exact name.
Thanks

It was my understanding, from a US pharmacist who used an injectable diabetes med, that a Mexican prescription was needed to buy an injectable in Mexico.

I do not know for sure, but once you find out about its availability, it would not be difficult to get one if you needed it. The only time I have had an injection here, I went to the Doc in a Box next to a Farmacias de Ahorro, went next door and got the med (an antibiótic) and went back to the Doc who gave me the shot.
