    Darn it! I feel like an airhead. I am weak shaky upset stomach kind of dizzy. Any idea on how to stabilize? I was doing better on the protocol too, but I did not know my tincture bottle and the folinic had been moved :( I have DHFR MTHFS and MTHFD. I hope I will be okay, any thought?

    I think you mean 4 mg?

    You should be okay, but if you get too overstimulated try some B3.

    Don't worry it's not toxic, but yeah it's a bit of a high dose, depending on how much you normally take.

    Well then... you've taken 10 days worth of folinic :)
    Just suspend it for a few days, it will be out of the system soon, with your pee.

    Ride the wave! Mistakes like this are the cost of making progress, learning.

    Okay all, I rode the wave! WHEEEEEEE! What a not so nice ride lol. My 2ndary reynauds came in with a roar and I was pretty dizzy for a few days but better now. Q is, and this is sort of worrisome to me, what to take now? I was told def do NOT use folinic acid (after the fact) any longer as they just found it is not good for folks who have FUT2 enzyme dysfunction. I have have a ton of mtrr mtr snps +/+ and cC677t as well as DHFR. So, should I go get a low dose 5lmthf? Where do I even find those! Crazy, the dosages. I have also heard that high dose folinic can cause Edema in some, hmmmmm
