    I'm taking 1.6 mg of folate twice a day and 1mg of methylb12 daily. I was fine for awhile and now I'm having itching episodes all over. I don't show a rash or anything it's just really itchy. I have read through multiple methlyation documents and have searched on this board and have tried:

    Increasing folate intake (donut hole folate)
    Increasing potassium citrate intake

    those seem to be the most frequent suggestions based on symptoms but I'm still itchy. I have also read it might be an indication of high histamines but I think taking an anti-histamine is just covering up the symptom and not treating it, I must be taking too much or too little of something. Anyone have a suggestion I could give a try? It's not terrible just annoying at this point.

    For whatever reason the itchyness has gone away. I think I was taking too much methylb12.
