> So basically the pharmaciticl industry is taking over supplements or making them in high doses that require a script? BTW how high was the deplina as say 15mg if the right dose per Susan Whalin on meds from the drug company Deplin. I tried it noticed nothing at 7.5mg Deplin that is. Phillipa

Well, I wouldn't say that Big Pharma is taking over supplements, but with l-methylfolate they managed to reclass it as a medical food and make it script only, and jack the price in the process. Merck owns the patent to Metafolin, which is still sold as an OTC supplement, but I think it is going to be script only soon also. It's pricey to try to recreate the Deplin dosage with Metafolin, and I didn't even get close to 7.5, let alone 15 mg, which is supposedly superior for a lot of people.
