What is Metanx?

Metanx is a prescription vitamin combination taken orally in the form of a tablet. This drug is a nutritional diet supplement and is used by those who have diabetic peripheral neuropathy and hyperhomocysteinemia. Diabetic peripheral neuropathy is a complication of diabetes that causes nerve damage in the extremities due to lack of blood flow in the peripheral blood vessels. In hyperhomocysteinemia, unusually large amounts of a certain substance in the blood causes vitamin deficiencies. Metanx provides specific nutritional requirements, which address the condition that causes damaged blood vessels associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy and replenishes deficient vitamins. This drug is also known by the generic name L-methylfolate with vitamins B6 and B12.
