Hello,As far as I know there are no contra indication to megaloblastic anaemia taking Dicorate500.Non meat sources of B12 would include milk,dairy products,yeast extract,breakfast cereals,and soya milk and cheese which you can add to your diet.I am not aware of food interactions to the drug except alcohol.The tablet is to be taken with food unless instructed otherwise by your physician.Do not miss your dose too.Ok?
