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 replying to my question. After taking Metanx for about 5 days, I did call my Dr. because my pain is just as intense as before I stared taking Metanx. I'm waiting ot hear back for her.

I am 23 years old and was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy (CMT) at age 17. I know there is no cure for cmt at this time (hopefully there will be one day). My MDA doctor recently perscribed Metanx Tablet Pam. One tablet, two times a day. My questions are: What exactly does this vitamin do or help prevent?, Has there been any successful cases using this viamin; if so, about how long was it before they saw the effects?

My doctor told me to give Metanx at least one month to really go to work. I've only been on it for 5 days, but it seems the pain in my toes isn't so intense. And unfortunately, my insurance company won't pay either. I'm looking into using Shaklee. Will let you know if I find something comparable!

It will take a while for the METANX to rectify the high levels of homocystine levels in your body. Meformin depletes B vitamins and that alone can cause pain. Be sure your glucose levels are good for a better outcome. You can get Metanx for $155. for a 90 day supply. I isn't covered by most insurances because it is considered a food. My insurance used to cover it but stopped this month.
