I am new to this forum and have a question regarding Deplin. It was described for me based on some blood tests showing that I have a gene mutation that prevents my body from properly converting folic acid into the body's usable form of l-methylfolate. I started taking Deplin on Wednesday and saw immediate improvements in mood and energy. However, I have also been ravenously hungry since then. At first I didn't make the connection but in doing a search this morning I found one forum where one user said she tried Deplin twice, a year apart, and each time she was incredibly hungry.

It does not make sense to me that it would increase appetite since you are giving your body what it is lacking. So I am wondering if anybody here is taking Deplin and if so, have you noticed an increase in appetite since taking it?

Hi Scooby-Doo,

Sorry no one answered your post this weekend! Anyhow, welcome to the forum. :-)

I don't take Deplin myself, but I've seen some other posts on the subject, so hopefully someone will come along with some input on that soon. I do know that folic acid is important when someone has depression, so I'm glad you're doing what you need to compensate for the lack of folic acid conversion in your body. I hope the Deplin continues to help you, and I hope you will come back and post with us again.
