What are the risks of taking Metanx?

There may be a risk of allergy when taking Metanx. Stop taking Metanx and contact your doctor immediately if you have symptoms of an allergic reaction. Symptoms of an allergy often include rash, hives, itching, trouble breathing, closing of the throat, or swelling of the face, mouth, lips or tongue. Also, there are vitamins and folic acid in Metanx. Tell your doctor if you take any other vitamins or supplements that contain vitamins or folic acid. It is possible to overdose on certain vitamins. Also, an excess of folic acid can hide a B12 deficiency. It is recommended not to drink alcohol or smoke tobacco while on this medication.
