Question
Hello Dr.,
My question is the effectiveness of taking Metanx for severe neuropathy when I am taking warfarin for subclavin clots, and folic acid for metabolism. My podiatrist has tried effexor, gabepentin and Lyrica. Maybe I will do better going natural?

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that Metanx is a vitamin supplement which contains L-methylfolate (vitamin B9), methylcobalamin (vitamin B12) and pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (vitamin B6). It is generally indicated for diabetic neuropathy but has got favouarble results in all peripheral neuropathy .

I will highly recommend you to go with it since many patients not responding to other drugs show a favouarble rsponse to this therapy although it takes slightly longer time to show results . Since you suffer from multiple comorbidities this will be the safest option to go with .

Take care.
