    I just tried the one from Spectrum Supplements and a box popped up that said: "Pteridin-4 (2.5mg) - 60 capsules (formerly BH4 - TetrahydroBiopterin) is not for sale" It is cheaper, but I'm not sure why they're not selling it right now.

    They have been running out on and off lately, I think due to increased demand or perhaps less supply from the manufacturer, Ecological Formulas/Cardiovascular Research.

    Funny you should ask. I'm about to place an order with Schircks Laboratories in Switzerland on behalf of a group of CFSers from BACFS. We're each pitching in at $200 for half a gram. It's a lot of money, but cheaper, more reliable, and fresher than the domestic brand. I find I need about 15 mg/day and more if I'm sick or particularly stressed, but I'm telling newbies to start low and go slow - maybe 5 mg or less if you have MCS. My MCS friend started at about a quarter of a miligram and worked up to 15 mg. She said it really helped her MCS and energy overall. Message me if you are interested in getting a share.

    @Mimi
    Is it possible to give us an update on your order to Schircks? Did it work? How much did you get for which price? And especially, which item did you buy? There are several different forms of BH4 shown in their pricelist and I would not know which is the appropriate one or which is recommended ;-(

    I used the BH4 from Exological Formulas for a while and it had a fantastic effect (my brain is like new, seriously, no other treatment or supplement came close to it, but of course I prepared my body for over a year before I dared to try it the first time). Unfortunately this product is out of stock for a while now and my ADHS symptoms start to come back. So I am looking for an alternative (and maybe cheaper option).

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Well, thats a long list. Basically everything mentioned here in the forum and more like:
    Adressing all relevant SNPs in methylation cycle first (based on this forum and RichVK, Amy Yasko and many others)
    treating severe digestion issues (e.g. change to Paleo diet & safe starches, probiotics ...)
    getting theeth and jaw fixed (removal of: very toxic root canal treated tooth [tested by orotox.de], mercury fillings, gold fillings and especially NICO [tested by CAVITAT])
    various detox with liver flush, castor-oil, herbs, enema, DMSA (lead, mercury ...), DMPS
    lots of supplements
    doing lots of testing to find out weaknesses and deficits (tests: digestion, organic acids, heavy metals, genetics, hormones, neurotransmitter, blood, liver detox capabilities ...)
