Despite Our Losses, People with ME/CFS Want More
We've been cheated by ME/CFS and we all know it. That's a no-brainer, if you'll pardon the cognitive pun. And loss didn't just result from the bad things that befell us. It also encompasses the good things that just ... never came. The absence of bounty. Of wholeness. Of peace.

How to reduce high dose methylfolate?

    I've been following Freddd's protocol with quite some success. Generally I feel much better and am pretty satisfied with my health. There is still lots to improve, but I feel great compared to before. I am thinking of going travelling for some time, and actually want to reduce my supplement intake to a bare minimum. Now when I tried to reduce my supplement intake slowly, I ended up with a paradoxical folate deficiency and had to go back to my 'normal' dose of 15mg methylfolate a day to avoid a sudden hard shut down.

    Can anyone here share their experience on how to reduce high dose methylfolate without ending up with deficiency symptoms? I want to avoid having to take a backpack of supplements with me while travelling.

    Vit B2 helps recycle methylfolate and supplementing with it may help reduce methylfolate dosage, but then you would need to carry a B2 supplement instead.

    Alternatively, you could carry high dose forms of methylfolate such as the 5 mg ones from Life Extension and Now if you're not already doing so.
