You can get some sulfate strips these ones http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw.... You want to get your urine sulfates down to at least 800 preferably 400 before adding in methylfolate and methylb12. ..more
ME/CFS patients are notoriously very sensitive to medicines and supplements. It’s common to have adverse reactions, or to only be able to tolerate small doses.
Newbies are especially prone to taking too large of doses or going too fast. The following explains how to manage such sensitivity.

MAO-A (Monoamine oxidase A) is a critical enzyme involved in breaking down important neurotransmitters such as serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine. While a homozygous (+/+) mutation is very common, prolonged periods of stress, violence, or trauma can lead to epigenetic changes that further decrease enzyme activity. On the table above, males only have one allele since the gene is inherited through from their mother since it is located on the X chromosome.
Males are more likely to have this mutation, represented on the table as homozygous (+). Only females can be heterozygous (+/-) for this mutation.
When a (+/+) MAO-A mutation is combined with a ... ..more

It's a kind of a big balancing act. But once you start finding the right balance and getting better you will start to see the positives. The big ones I use for cbs is b6 active form p5p and molybdenum to balance copper and zinc and help break down excess sulfates. You ... ..more
