Enhancement Of Recovery From Psychiatric Illness By Methylfolate
Notes for this study:
||Clinician scoring of 4 (little to no improvement) to 1 (symptom-free): From 2.1 to 1.6 in 6 months with methylfolate vs. 2.5 to 2.6 placebo.
|Number of Subjects
In subjects who used supplemental methylfolate at 15mg for six months, supplementation was associated with improvements in social recovery for both depressive and schizophrenic patients; overall benefits to these two conditions appeared to be better than placebo after six months. Of note is that subjects did not have optimal folate levels in their blood at the start of the study.
