    I used levomefolate to alleviate my Schizoaffective Disorder symptoms. It worked very well for one year with no side effects. Now, I am having migraines and exhaustion, but I am not 100% sure if it is from the levomefolate.

    The methylfolate, which is this "medicinal food" was very effective for my depression. I have the MTFR mutation, and can't turn folate into methylfolate (or activate folate as the pharmaceutical company says). Methylfolate is available in Health food stores for a lot less, and combined with niacin and B12 to make it easier to absorb.

I recently told my doctor that in addition to being overwhelmed with devastating family health issues, I had been becoming more and more fearful of losing my career because I couldn't seem to remember even the simplest of tasks.
