Paula, l-methylfolate is sold with the brand name Deplin, but a generic form l-methylfolate calcium is also available. It's Rx only. The generic is cheap - like $10 cheap. It helped me tremendously when I was taking my antidepressants, but I made it a goal to get off everything, so I haven't taken it for over 2 years. If I were to ever go back to "medicating" my depression, l-methylfolate is what I'd use. Therapeutic doses start at 7.5 mg (or 7500 mcg, or 8 capsules when bought over the counter) and go up to 15 mg (15,000 mcg). From what I'm reading there are MANY different forms of it, and you have to know the difference to notice the difference. None will inherently cause harm, but some are better than others in regard to healing. And it can take 10 weeks to work optimally.
No announcement yet.
