I read 'Parkinsons Disease treatment guide for physicians' by Dr. J. Eric Ahlskog.He discusses use of the following:Folic acid 2.5 mg(I would prefer L-methyfolate), B6 25 mg ,B12 1 or 2 mg. I have the MTHFR mutation: compound heterozygosity c.665C.>T?1268A>C. This defect may lead to early arteriosclerotic vascular disease or venous thrombosis and toxicity from medications affecting folate metabolism. I have a homocysteine level on the high side of normal(three times the low level). This doctor gives his patients this vitamin combo because levodopa can cause high elevation of homocysteine is associated with the above diseases. Has anyone been prescribed this combo for PD by their neurologist or cardiologist? Which generic brand of Folbic or the others in this group contains L-methyfolate? Folic acid is not good. If you used this combo for any reason did it lower your homocysteine level?
