    My 15 year old (who has Lyme, and likely MCS), recently started taking Methyl B12 Plus from Douglas Labs. This is a lozenge with 400 mcg Metafolin and 1000 mcg Methylcobalamin. She says that after about 1/4 or less has melted in her mouth, she starts to feel nauseous. Then she's been chewing it and swallowing it. This has been going on for several weeks, but I didn't realize it. She says swallowing it does not make the nausea worse. I have her off it for now.

    Is this quick reaction a lifting of the methylation cycle block? Or something else? Does it just mean we need to go slower with starting this, like give her 1/4 or less per day and work up slowly to one lozenge?

    I am fairly new to this stuff. Have not done SNP testing yet. Planning on doing 23andme soon.
