Fredd, Iam a little confused about what you are doing with the folic acid. I have not been on this site for a while and I just happend to read your thought about paradoxical folate deficency on anther site. About a month ago Dr. who works at a good health food store by me recormended FolaPro to me. I just started taking it and have not noticed anything different yet. Are you still taking B-right? Should I stop taking that while Iam taking Folapro? Also I ran out of ad b12 (country life) so I have not been taking that. Iam still taking mehtly b12 and l-carnatine fumarate. I have never noticed a difference with the carnitine, and I was taking 6 at a time by jarrow. He also told me to take biotine and gft with it but I see no difference. I get weak muscles from just little or normal exercise. I also had a low vit. D at 10 and I was iron deficent my satutation is about 12%. Its been about 3 years now since I have been taking the methly b12 and while it helped at first, as far as brain fog nothing has helped the pure exhustion I feel.

You also might be low on Potassium. That might be an "and" or an "or". Also, currently I am suggesting Source Naturals Dibencozide without any folic acid in it.
