Based on personal experience, I am convinced that Metanx acts as a blood thinner, at least for me. It delays coagulation to where a slight cut bleeds profusely. I had a small sty removed from my eyelid and it took considerable time for the surgeon to get the bleeding stopped. The nurses wondered if I was taking a herb of some sort. Some time later, I cut my finger, same result. When I stop Metanx, no problem.
Is Metanx an anti-coagulate?

No, it is a specific B6,9,12 multivitamin where the folate (B9) is the active metabolite of folic acid (l-methyl folate) and is generally prescribed for peripheral neuropathy, especially in diabetics.
Blood coagulation times are a representation of liver function (the liver produces blood clotting factors).
