Description of Metanx
Metanx is a prescription drug that contains three active ingredients: L-methylfolate or Metafolin (vitamin B9), Methylcobalamin (vitamin B12) and Pyridoxal 5’-phosphate (vitamin B6). The medicine is a vitamin B supplement and it is available in the form of oral tablets. Each tablet contains 2.8mg L-methylfolate, 25mg Pyridoxal 5’-phosphate and 2mg Methylcobalamin.
Indications & Dosage of Metanx
Your doctor will recommend you to buy Metanx in order to treat hyperhomocysteinemia and endothelial dysfunction. It is effective in treating diabetic peripheral neuropathy and lower extremity ulcerations including diabetic foot ulcers. Diabetic patients have disruptions in their metabolic processes, resulting in progressive neuropathy. Metanx meets the nutritional requirements of diabetic patients so that metabolic processes can be restored. As a result of this, the body starts producing nitric oxide, a natural vasodilator, so that flow of blood increases in the vessels, carrying oxygen and important nutrients to the nerves.
Your doctor may advise you to take one Metanx tablet two times a day, or two Metanx tablets once a day. Once the desired effects are achieved, your doctor may decrease your dosage to one Metanx tablet a day. You can take the tablets with or without food.
