Metanx

Anyone ever hear of Metanx? My Dr. prescribed it for nerve damage in my leg/back, but the website says it's for diabetics. I'm not diabetic, shoulds I even be taking this stuff? Years ago, she gave me Vioxx, I read the warning leaflet and threw the pills in the trash. I was right, they were pulled off the market later on. I'm not sure about this either...

That's what I have, just the diabetic part kind of freaked me out.She said they were vitamins but the website glorifies it into something more. I guess I'll give them a shot, then..thanks!...cat...=)

I don't know about that specific drug but I was put on glucophage (a diabetic med) for my PCOS so I always had to make it clear if I was seeing another dr or something I was not diabetic. So I am guessing they may know what they are doing! It did help me by the way.

I have taken metanx for two years for neuropathy in my feet and legs.  Metanx is for anyone with neuropathy which is nerve damage.  Nerve damage can be caused by not only diabetes, but surgery as well as vitamin deficiencies. Metanx is vitamin b with niacin.  Since being on this medication, I have no problems with neuropathy since being on this medication.
