metanx
can this med cause bad foot pain? ## It really shouldn't, it is used to treat cases of such pain, caused by neuropathy. Have you spoken to your doctor or pharmacist about this problem? ## I got the med for foot neurophy, but since starting it the pain has become different and worse. guess i should check with him again'. ## I started having more pain in my feet, too, after starting Metanx for neuropathy, and one foot is getting real bad. My doctor can't figure out what is causing the increased pain. I also wonder if Metanx could be causing it. I hope there will be an answer somewhere to this question. ## i completed taking a script for 60 metanx for pain in my foot; i too had increased pain and my other foot stared bothering me; i could barely walk the first two weeks of taki... ...

metanx?
I recently went to a neurologist & had a EMG & EEG. When I went back 4 results....he said I might have some nerve damage in m legs? My legs jump & twitch on their own! He told me this matanx was a type of vitamin? I'm kinda confused. Any feedback would be appreciated. ## Metanx contains 3 different B Vitamins, it is suspect that a deficiency in them can cause or aggravate certain types of neuropathic pain. Are there any questions or comments? ...

metanx?
I recently went & had a EMG & EEG. My Dr. said I had some nerve damage in my legs? My legs jump & twitch on their own? My Dr. said this matanx is a vitamin? Any feedback would be appreciated. ## Metanx contains the active ingredients: L-methylfolate (Metafolin): 2.8 mg Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate: 25 mg Methylcobalamin: 2 mg These B-Vitamins are often given to try to help treat or prevent nerve damage, however, the only way they will help is if that damage was caused by a deficiency in these nutrients. If it was due to an injury, then they will probably not do much. Read more: Are there any comments or questions? ...

Cost Of Metanx
the mentanx folks are a bunch of bastards charging too high of prices. ## Hi Wyatt, Lots of medications these days are quite expensive which is why I usually opt for natural homeopathic remedies and suggest that everyone does their best to eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables; which can be a lot more effective at healing than conventional medication. Nonetheless, when you're in a bind you can find discount cards for medication online. For Mentanx, just google "Mentanx discount coupon" and you should see a couple options pop up. Here's a link to one that I found: medicationdiscountcard.com/drug/metanx-coupon You can learn more about this drug on the page for Metanx Details I hope this helps! ...

trying to check on price of metanx tablets vs metanx capsules I take 2 a day & have 3 month supplt if tablets now ## I see their website lists capsules as being available, now. But they're still from the same company and under the brand name, so I doubt you'll see much of a price difference. Learn more Metanx details here.

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 TABLET PAM
taken instead of foloc acid ## I went to my doctor complaining of pain in my left leg and hip. I was diagnoised with a compressed nerve in my spine. I'm am scheduled for an MRI in 4 days. In the meantime I've been perscribed METANX TABLET PAM for Neuropathy, and GABAPENTIN 300 MG CAPSULE APO for leg pain. My insurance company will not pay for the METANX. MY question is Is METANX just a bunch of vitimins and not considered a drug by the insurance companies? Also what is the chance of this product doing anymore for me than over the counter vitamins that I could probably better afford? ## It is best to speak with your doctor about it, there may be a specific reason they want you to take these ones. Prescription vitamins are often higher in nutrients than OTC ones. ## Thanks for rep... ...

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 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... ...

Metanx Interactions
With other vitamin supplements ## I can only advise you to discuss it with your doctor. Supplement products are not usually tested for side effects and interactions, as is done with actual prescription medications. So, it would basically come down to what the exact supplements in question contain, because getting too much of some nutrients, such as Potassium and Vitamin B12 can be just as dangerous as not having enough of them. Have you discussed it with your doctor? ...

Metanx Over The Counter
Is "over the counter" Metanx as effective as the prescription version? ## Hi Lynn, Based on my research, Metanx is a combination of Folic acid (3 mg), B 6 (35 mg), and B 12 (2 mg). I don't think that it would be any less effective as long as the dosage is the same as what a doctor would prescribe. The only thing that might be different is the manufacturer- but that shouldn't have any major effect on the supplement other than the types of "inactive" ingredients used. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Metanx Details I hope this helps! ...

Patient assistance for Metanx
Does anyone know of a patient assist program for Metanx? I have a client whom really needs this med but cannot afford it. Please Help ## There are some assistance programs that will help with almost any medication they can, rather than a specific one, such as pparx.org, has he tried applying with them? ## i too have been trying to find patient assistance.What i found is a company directly affiliatted with the manufacturing company of Metanx. It is as follows; Brand Direct Sales 1-866-331-6440 Priceof Metanx 2 tablets per day (60 tbl) is $48 per month or $144 for 3 months (180 tbs) ## Another vote for Brand Direct here. ## None of the programs including those listed distribute Mentanx as it is technically of food product rather than a medicine, even though it is available only with a pre... ...

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.
