I am 21 year old. I am taking tablet Cymbalta 60 mg and tablet Citalopram 10 mg daily for depression and anxiety. Recently, I got a blood test for vitamin B12 and the results turned out to be pretty high at 1344 pg/mL. I am aware that the normal range of vitamin B12 is 200-900 pg/mL. My vitamin B12 is significantly above 900. What does it mean? Should I be worried about the same? Please help.

Thank you doctor,
I was told by my physician not to fast before the blood test. So, I did not fast. Previously, I used to take children's multivitamin. Since one month I have changed to adult vitamins of 100 mcg. But, I know the recommended value of vitamin B12 is 2.4 mcg/day. According to you, vitamin B12 values are generally increased only in case of hepatic damage or few cancers. I would like to know, how do I decrease vitamin B12 level? Has the change of multivitamin resulted in high vitamin B12?
