my psychiatrist prescribed ENLYTE for depression.

Posted by georgette12 @georgette12, Dec 5, 2017

Out of desperation, my psychiatrist finally decided to try a different tactic. I have been taking ENLYTE for unrelenting symptoms not helped by any meds. or ECT treatments. Please call up the website. It is used for many things…but is actually more super doses of vitamin Bs and Ds and folic acid. I will be away from my computer for several hours but I wanted to start this discussion now. Will check back later.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Depression & Anxiety group.

Enlyte is an UNAPPROVED drug for treatment of homocysteine metabolism problems and contains other vitamins, etc to treat anemia. It's allowed to be used by physicians because there are no comparable FDA APPROVED drugs. Glad it's helping some of you!

I thanks for your reply.
What I am puzzled about is: If it is only the l-methylfolate that is not metabolized by the body of people in this condition, why buy a $52 bottle of Enlyte if I can buy a $15 bottle of plain l-methylfolate on Amazon. And in fact I can get a 90tablet bottle for about $25?

Buy the n-methylfolate alone, but Google the manufacturer. You the absolute BEST manufacturer making your supplements, or they can be "sugar pills", since they are not regulated by FDA.

Thank you for your prompt reply. How can I investigate food supplements manufacturers? I always buy mine at the local supermarket and often get the supermarket’s brand.
Other Brands I use are Nature Made or Nature’s Truth. But that’s just because that’s what my supermarket carries.

Just Google: "best supplement manufacturers".
