Metanx Caution
10 Replies RSS
I've been taking Metanx for 6 months due to diabetic nephropathy and foot drop in my left foot. After the first few months I thought there was minimal improvement in frequency and severity of the pain. But now, after 6 months, it seems like the pain is as frequent and severe as when I started. I just picked up a refill and found that the price (not covered by my insurance) has almost doubled in the past 6 months. So, for $75 a month and little or no improvement, I'm done with Metanx. Incidentally, if you research this product carefully you will find that even though it is only available by prescription, it is classified as a medical food and not reviewed or approved by the FDA for efficacy or safety. ## Hi Lewie, Metanx does have published studies that show it repairs damaged ne...

CAN I BUT MENTANX TABLET PM OVER THE COUNTER ## Is your drug Metanx a prescription filled dosage? If it does require a prescription, then it is most likely not available over the counter, and I believe you would have to contact your physician to refill. You can get more information regarding Metanx by clicking on the link below... If you have any questions or concerns please post back so I can further help you find what your looking for. ## Many people experience problems with the methylation cycle in the body. This is too complicated to explain here but please study this as much as you can. I do not have diabetic neuropathy but do have macrocytosis (enlarged red blood cells). This is usually caused by low B12 and folate. The methyl forms of B12 and folate must be used for proper absorp...

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...

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...

Does Metanx have to be taken for life or until symptoms subsides and maybe go on a maintenance dose? ## Hello, Maria! How are you? It is actually a nutritional food supplement, not a medication, so there shouldn't be any problem with long-term use, but how long it is right for you is entirely up to your doctor. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea and constipation. Are there any other questions or concerns?

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...
