Have tried Metanx for 2 weeks...fist cap a day and then 2 and find it gives me insomnia. even after stopping it I am unable to sleep. Feeling of nervousness like using caffiene. I do not use any caffience. Too bad I have bought 90 days supply of it. Have used it in the past and have had the same side effects!!
