Would I need to take B2 always with B12 or just take B2 to boost levels, then take B12 again without B2?If you are taking a complex, then you will need to isolate the offending vitamin. I just realized that one of mine contains PABA which irritates my system (makes me worse).
Keep in mind that b vitamins can suppress other b vitamins, you might have a need for say B2 as the other poster suggested. Taking B12 may be suppressing B2 etc.

If I take a B complex activated or not, I can very irritable over everything, and can become very anxious. If I take methyl B12 I get headaches and fatigue, I also get like this with a combo of Adeno and hydroxy B12
Glad you found out about this issue from a simple saliva test!I keep feeling extra ill - the day after taking methyl folic acid of B12. Insomnia in particular
I thought maybe because artificial vitamins aren't good so I took pills containing dessicated liver instead. They are natural source of all B vitamins.
I strangely feel bad after that too, but no way as terrible as methyl folate acid.
Thank You @bertiedog I am now self diagnosed with COMPT.
I bet these genetic problems are more common in CFS patients than the regular population. They should be standard screening in all moderately affected patients.
I had to ask my doctors to give me the MTHFR test, after I self diagnosed myself with it. I am homozygous MTHFR. I didn't know about the COMPT thing.
I wish there was an easy cheap test for COMPT instead of the mumbo jumbo people do on Phoenix Rising, like interpreting test results or paying a fortune.... or Dante Labs taking an eternity to do it. It sounds like a horrible exhausting project.
