I just started this metanx a little over a week now. I was given a pamphlet on it. It states that metanx contains the active ingredients of folic acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 which allow the body to absorb them without having to break them down first like you would have to do with OTC vitamins. It is only available with a prescription and you take two of the pills a day. Hope this information helps.

The ingredients list provided by Krystal is correct, it is generally given to help Diabetic Neuropathy patients.

The breakdown is 2.8mgs of Folic Acid, 25mgs of B6 and 2mgs of B12.

You can read more about this on the manufacturers information site:

Is there anything else I can help you with?

I am 71 and have been diagnosed with pernicious anemia. My lifetime store of Vit B-12 has been used up and my intrinsic factor is very low to non-existent. I receive B-12 shots monthly and take a Metanx tablet daily. I have taken the tablet for over a year and have not noticed any side effects; of course at 71 I have some creaks and aches but I do not attribute them to any meds I am taking.

Can Mentanx be used to lower high homocysteine levels in blood? I am female, the level is 8.9
I understand inadaquate B vitamins can be a factor in homocysteine levels.

RE: Absorbtion of supplements:
It has been my experience that typical otc supplements are generally inferior to whole food supplements - found in health food stores and some natural practitioners offices. I have been under the care of an herbalist/acupuncturist/nutritionist for a few years and since I stopped taking pharmaceutically created supplements I have improved dramatically.
I stopped buying Metanex ($50 a pop!) in favor of Vitamins b6, b12 and folic acid through my practitioner from Standard Process brand whole food supplements for early stage neuropathy in my feet and have noticed a constant improvement.
I also take Gymnema (to support my pancreas) and Alpha Lipoic Acid for my recently diagnosed Type 2 diabetes. I take not RX meds and my test numbers are all normal.

I have diabetic neuropathy also. It is so bad that my moterskills are affected. I was diagnosed with with surggery on my ulnar nerves they moved the nerves because they thought tthat was the problem with my hands. I was miss diagnosed. Metanx has been that has cured 75 to 85percent of the problem for me. My insurance wouldn't paythe drug store was going to charge me $439.00 per month after roughly 60 hours on the web ifound it on an mail order pharmacy for about $61.00 a month. It has been a godsend for me. I have been taking for 2weeks and i have at least 70 percent better. The place i found is called BDH pharmacy. On the web it can be found under 'Brand Direct Health Pharmax'. i hope that if i can help just one other than i will sleep better at night. Kim from Buffalo

L- Methyl-B6-B12 3 Tab Virt is what my doctor prescribes instead of Metanx. Metanx is just a super vitamin. I pay $38.00 a month at Fred's Pharmacy for 30 pills. Best help is maintaining good sugar mubers.

I just started taking Metanx 3-35-2mg tabs. After two doses I am losing hair like crazy. I am hoping this is temporary. Anyone else experience this?

I'm struggling with money so my physician put me on Folinic Plus one a day. It cost me $16.00 @ the pharmacy. It took a couple days to get because the pharmacy didn't have it. But I thought it was worth it. I didn't have to call anyone to order or give anyone my information. I just went to the pharmacy and they ordered it for me.
