Yes, you can: Yes, you can take 5 methylfolate (folic acid) with warfarin. In fact, in your case it would be a good idea because long-term warfarin can impair your folate (folic acid) status. http://dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailymed/lookup.cfm?setid=2ebbba9c-9451-4b87-87b0-31546c37cef6.

Metafolin: Look for a supplement called homocysteine factors. It is a quality product that will help your mthfr 677 polymorphism as well as supply you with quality folate (folic acid). For 1298, limit phenylalanine intake, and avoid excessive animal protein.
