Will Metanx affects Alzheimer's Disease in any way?
1 Reply RSS
My physician said that a highly respected researcher has found through a study, where, one group was given Metanx & the other a placebo. The study stated that those lucky enough to received the Metanx, the volume loss of brain was greatly reduced. Are there other studies being done to slow down the progressive nature of Alzheimer's or a possible prevention or treatment for this horrible disease. Thank you so much. ## Hello, BD! How are you? I've not found anything on that study. However yes, there is lots of research being done and many possible breakthroughs, including full memory restoration, if further testing validates the findings, but it will be several years before any of it becomes mainstream. As to the Metanx, since it is just a nutritional supplement as classified ...

metanx versus generic
6 Replies RSS
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. ## Hi snowy, As someone who's tried several different vitamin products over the past 5 years, I never knew B-vitamins could be so expensive either Lol. $238 sounds a bit unfair, especially since Metanx doesn't appea...

Metanx works for pedal neuropathy
1 Reply RSS
My neurologist was helping me with a minor stroke workup. As an afterthought, I said "I'm sure you can do nothing for my pedal neuropathy," and turned to leave his office. He replied, "Pedal neuropathy? I can help you with that." He gave me a telephone number, apparently the one to PamLab. They sent me a 90-day supply for $238. Having suffered the ol' numb foot, increasingly tweaked by pains, for the last 11 years, I figured I'd give it a try. Well, by golly, just three weeks into taking these two-a-day capsules, I have improved considerably, to the point where I can again walk about in my yard in bare feet. And I go sock-footedly about the house again. I'm just amazed my GP doesn't know about Metanx. ## Hello, Kitster! How are you? I'm very glad ...

folinic do this tabs have the same ingred as mantex
1 Reply RSS
please tell if this is the same as metanx will it help and how much do it cost ## Hello, Grace! How are you? No, from what I'm seeing listed by the FDA, they are not the same. Folinic is a folic acid supplement, while Metanx contains more nutrients, including the B vitamins. I'm sorry, but I don't have a price to quote you, either. The best way to get prices would be by contacting your pharmacy. Since some of these supplements are potent, they cause nausea, in some people that take them. Is there anything else I can help with?

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. Read what this has to say to find the real truth: globenewswire.com/news-release/Pamlab-LLC-and-Breckenridge-Pharmaceutical-Joint-Venture-to-Provide-Authorized-Generics-on-Pamlab-Branded-Medical-Food-Products.html What are your thoughts/opinions on the matter? ## @WDG, Despite what some people may say, I believe that generics will always be different than brand name medications. I mean, why else would they be so much cheaper unless there was something different about it? In the link you shared, they mentioned that "Breckenridge's authorized generics will be manufactured with the same exact ingredients & quantities as Pamlab's brand produc...

METANX PRICE/ FOLINIC PLUS PRICE
3 Replies RSS
I have been taking Metanx for about 6 months and it was working ok. I Recently lost my job and when I went to my Poditrist he told me of a new medicine that can save me a lot of money. So I decided to go to my pharmacist and get it. The name of the medicine is Folinic Plus. It cost me $16.00 for 30 tablets. What a savings! I also like the tablet form. I'm hoping it works. ## Hello, Sparky! How are you? Thank you for your very valuable post. Many people have had complaints about the price of Metanx. Folinic Plus is listed as being very similar, though not identical. It contains Vitamin B6, B9 and B12, it used as a supplement and sometimes to help support nerve health. Since it is potent, some people experience nausea, after taking it, according to the company website. Are there any q...

Metanx - ingredients
21 Replies RSS
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...
