The one is Metanx I take for peripheral neuropathy. It is high in B-12 & Folic Acid. Requires a script. the generic is Neurpath-B; it also requires a script! I know the spelling looks odd but is correct. Jereco

Please let me first identify myself as a member of the Metanx brand team.

Neurpath B is not an equivalent to Metanx.

One of the primary ingredients in Metanx is Metafolin (as L-methylfolate calcium), the pure stable crystalline form of folate preferred by the body http://www.metafolin.com/.

Neurpath B features Xolafin, which is supplied from China. This manufacturer is not cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practices) certified by Chinese or U.S. governments.

Independent laboratory testing demonstrates that Xolafin, when incorporated into the same formula as Metanx is unstable, and falls out of specification in the first month.

"Neurpath-B" is currently purported to be the generic equivalent now commonly substituted for "Metanx." Prior to the marketing of Neurpath-B, the generic equivalent substituted for Metanx was known as "Folast." BOTH of these purported substitutes are/were manufactured by Brookstone Pharmaceuticals, now under ownership of Acella Pharmaceuticals.
