Deplin is an oral prescription medication that contains L-methylfolate, a folate that occurs naturally in many foods and has high levels of B vitamins. It is used to improve the production of red blood cells to prevent anemia and other medical problems, particularly in patients with certain diseases or on medications that cause lower levels of folate, and it is prescribed to people with folate deficiency, major depressive disorder, or schizophrenia. Deplin may be prescribed for additional purposes not listed here as deemed appropriate by a physician.
