METANX INGREDIENTS
ARE GNC VITAMIN B-6 200, GNC VITAMIN B-12 1000 & GNF FOLIC ACID 1000 COMBINED A GOOD SUBSTITUTE FOR METANX? IS THERE A GENERIC FOR METANX AVAILABLE? ## There is a generic for Metanx now. I have been paying $42, but the generic is $18. Ask your pharamacist. ## There is NO generic for Metanx, anyone that claims to be a generic does not have the L form of folate (Metanx) that product would have both the inactive form in their product (racemic mixture). DO NOT TAKE THE RACEMIC FORM. If your doctor prescribes Metanx, please only take Metanx. ## A racemic mixture has both the L and R forms of the substance and should be OK, just make sure there is sufficient L form (half of the total weightj). I.e. Metanx has 2.8 mg of the L-methylfolate, make sure the generic has this or 5.6 mg of methyl...

generic for metanx
There are a lot of so called Generics that have names that sound like the real deal but they are not. Pam Labs is the owner of Metanx.

Metanx - ingredients
I want to know what is in this medicine, the amount of eash property- how much more than an over the counter drug/ ## Please explain what is in this medicine and also is vitamin C and B12 over the counter just as good. Thank you ## 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, 25...

generic for metanex
I would like to comment on Metanex... for me it was a miracle drug.... I have type II diabetes and had "drop foot" .. and had to buy a brace for my right foot because when I walked I "slapped" down my right foot.... a Dr. recommended Metanx and after 1 week of taking the drug, I haven't had to use the brace once.... my only problem is that a generic is no longer available and the Metanx costs $90.00 for a 30 day supply... I can't afford to take it at that cost... how can I get a discount? ## Hi Mildred, I work with Metanx and am very pleased to read how well you are doing on Metanx and I have some good news for you, If you are interested on how to save on your Metanx prescription, contact Brand Direct Health at 1-866-331-6440.

metanx versus generic
I got a prescription Metanx, it was capsules for it and they wanted $400 for 90 day supply 2x a day at Wegman's Rx, insurance won't pay as it is high tech vitamins so I asked about a manufacturer's coupon and they found L-methyl-B6-B12 in generic made by Virtus Pharmacy, they had to order it and it came in the following day by 3:00 p.m. think name was Folbic but not sure, that was $238 for 90 day supply 2x day. The pharmacist was shocked at the price of the "B vitamins". Just started today so will let you know how well it works in a couple months.

Pain/Metanx
I am willing to try anything that might help with the feet & leg pain, my arms & hand pain I am having. Also in my joints. Feels like my nerves,tendons, muscles, are like a rubber band, and being twisted at both ends, until so tight they could pop at any time. The pain gets so bad when I am asleep it wakes me up screaming, running, kicking, then can't find anything then to take for the pain, to relieve just enough to allow me to go back to sleep. But, it wouldn't allow me any relief enough to get back to sleep. I would like to join the Research Team, to see if Metanx will help me. ## Hello, Polly! Sorry about the pain that you're in. However, this website does not manufacture any prescription products, nor is it affiliated with any manufacturer, it is an information ...

metanx & footpain
I have taken metanx for 2 1/2 mo my feet and ancles have gotten so sore i could hardly walk on them. I quit taking the med. 3 days ago and can feel a great differance in the pain leavel. ## After doing some major research Shaklee B Complex is equivalent to Metanx! Hope this comes through - they blocked my comment from yesterday! ## There have been a few people reporting that Metanx caused them worse pain and did not help at all. Unfortunately, it appears that it does cause this opposite effect in some people. Have you spoken to your doctor about using something else? Mommacakes, did you have a link to a site that sells the item in your post? If so, then yes, our site software does, sometimes, block those to prevent spamming. ## First, let me say that I meant to say Complex B from Shakle...

metanx caps
What is the difference between: Metanx Caps 2.5 - 20 - 1 MG Metanx Tablets 2 - 3- 35 MG ## Hi Sylvia, According to the manufacturer's webpage, each Metanx capsule contains 3mgs of Calcium + 35mgs of Vitamin B6 + 2mgs of Vitamin B12. The only difference I'm seeing with those numbers in your description, is that they can pertain to different dosages of these three ingredients. I hope this helps to clear things up!
