Another option to consider is Metan-X. It's another methylfolate "medical food," but it contains a lower dose of methylfolate, with the addition of pyridoxal 5'-phosphate and methylcobalamin. It's being marketed for diabetes management and vascular health, but my pdoc prescribed it when he suggested (ie: prescribed an OTC substance) I start SAMe, to normalize homocysteine levels. I've taken it for some time now, and can't say whether it helps or not, but it certainly hasn't hurt.
The other benefit is that it is much less expensive than Deplin, and may be a more accessible choice for those without prescription drug coverage.
Hope that helps someone out there.
