Will Adensylcobalamin with methylfoalte create deficiency?

    FYI taking 100 methylfolate and about one mg ADB12. Not sure how much I'm getting because it dissolves so fast being from a ten mg sublingual tab.

    It might cause a deficiency of other B vitamins. Taking a low dose B complex with B9 and B12 is a good idea. You will find threads on the subject here.

    When I started taking B vitamins, I was taking a B complex with folic acid (ugh!) and Adenosyl-B12 (~800mcg).
    At the time I was also trying methyl-B12 but it was too strong for me so I kept going with the B complex for a while and it helped anyways. Eventually I was able to introduce a bit of methyl-B12 and gradually build it up to a full 1mg dose. Took me almost 1 year to get there.

    As Little Bluestem said, taking a B complex is usually best since all vitamins in the group work together.

    Thanks. Yes I am taking 1/4 tab 2x day of Bcomplex by country life that has no folate or B12. I wish it had a little bit of methylB12 so I could acclimate myself to it, but I don't want the folate from a B complex, esp. right now. I am keeping dose of B complex low as warned by Fred. I also take an extra few mg's of B1 with K supplements because it helps my heart rhythm- I think unless it is just psychological.

    Good news that you were eventually able to tolerate mB12 @PeterPositive .

    Any supplement with any niacin in it at all gives me problems. I wound up taking all my B vitamins piece-meal, in their most active forms, because I couldn't find a b complex with no form of niacin in it whatsoever.

    Taking piece-meal turned out to be very effective. And now I'm fairly stabilized I don't seem to need much of the B's besides what I get in my food. Except for the B12's and methylfolate, of course, and I'm still reducing my doses of those to what I hope will be low dose for lifetime maintenance. I do drink milk and eat Ezekiel bread, though, which I know some people can't do. Those are good food sources of B's, and they may help me.

    So, if your're scared of your B-complex, you might consider trying piecemeal. It's a little more expensive, and there is a little bit of a learning curve (figuring out what the most active forms are, what might be best for you to try, etc.), but I found it worth it.

    Good luck, Adly!
