... prescribed Deplin. 15 mg. Is there a generic maker for Deplin? Why is the L methyl folate in Deplin different then the folic acid could get from the pharmacy? I certainly seem to be feeling better well I'm taking it but it is way beyond my cost allowance
Folic Acid Deficiency - I have some mutation in a gene MTHF5 I think that's it. The doctor?

I'm sorry I don't have an answer to your question, but I can tell you that your actual gene deficiency is in "MTHFR," which is an enzyme responsible for catalyzing the conversion of folic acid to methylfolate. Methylfolate is a precursor to serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine synthesis. On my Genecept Assay report, next to MTHFR, it also says "C677T" but I don't know what that means. It also says "C/C" which I'm assuming means "calcium channel."
I hope this helps a little bit, if you want to do a little more research into the genetic enzyme itself. :0)
