I read that 1500 mcg/day l-methylfolate (5-mthf/levomefolic acid) can reduce depression. Any brand you'd recommend? (i also take effexor/wellbutrin).

In brief: Pharmaceutical

L-methylfolate is an effective treatment of mood disorders if the patient cannot metabolize folic acid, a b vitamin, properly.
I suggest you find a pharmaceutical grade. You may need to ask your doctor for a prescription.
