Hi, thanks for the question. There is no OTC substitute for thus medication. Cerefolin NAC is a combination of
L-methylfolate (Metafolin) 5.6mg, methylcobalamin 2mg, N-acetylcysteine 600mg.
The only thing you can do is try to mimic this combination by buying over the counter folic acid, vitamin b12, and acetylcysteine.
