    Is this right? (Vitamins for MTHFR)

    I was just told today I have the MTHFR and under average for Protein S. The doctor wants me to take 2mg folic acid, 100mg B6, 250mcg B12 and one baby asprin a day. After reading through some of the posts, these amounts seem a bit low. Anyone have any advie? They alright or should I call and tell the man I need to up these?

    Thanks,
    Heaven

    If you only have one copy of the MTHFR mutation, then that sounds about right. It would be much easier if your dr. would prescribe Folard/Foltex/Metanx (one of these), so you don't have to take so many pills. Do you know how many copies and which one(s) you have?

    That sounds about right if you only have one mthfr mutation. I was on about the same thing for my cycle (successful) and will stay on it for life. I am hetero mthfr. Good luck!!!

    I have the c667t mutation. I asked him about Folgard and he said it was fine with him. Have been taking that and the baby aspirin since Sunday. Thanks for your help!
