Brief Answer: retest and need more info Detailed Answer: Hi I am Dr Saumya Mittal. Homocheck is a combination of vitamin B12 and folate levels. So even if you continue taking it, there should be no harm. However I would suggest you retest the levels of Homocysteiene before deciding about stopping the medicine. What were your symptoms? Why was Homocysteiene done? Awaiting you response and report. I may be able to help you better thereafter Best of luck Dr Saumya Mittal
