A closer look at the various shades of methylene blue.

Methylene blue comes up in discussions about colors and pharmaceuticals. It isn’t new. In fact, it is on the World Health Organization’s list of essential medicines. Let’s look at what makes methylene blue so fascinating.

Basics of Methylene Blue

  • What it is: Methylene blue, also known as methylthioninium chloride, is a chemical with a long history in dyeing and medicine.
  • Origins: Created by Heinrich Caro in 1876, it was the first totally synthetic drug.
  • Current Applications: It blues diagnostic tests and combats diseases such as methemoglobinemia, malaria, and cyanide poisoning.

Safety first.

  • Generally safe: Small doses are suitable for the majority of people.
  • Exceptions: Avoid if you are using certain antidepressants, pregnant, or have a G6PD deficiency.

Methylene Blue has an impressive range for aging. Improves skin health by increasing mitochondrial function and decreasing oxidative stress. Also helps with psoriasis and collagen production.

  • Against Depression: Works as a powerful antidepressant by preventing neurotransmitter breakdown.
  • Lyme Disease Fighter: Provides an option for those who do not respond to antibiotics.
  • Cognitive Enhancer: Enhances memory and brain function.
  • Neuroprotection: Reduces brain cell damage, potentially protecting against Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
  • Methemoglobinemia: The FDA has approved a treatment for this rare blood disorder.
  • Malaria: Has potent anti-malarial properties.
  • Ifosfamide-induced Encephalopathy: Helps treat brain disorders after chemotherapy.
  • Shock therapy is an effective way to elevate blood pressure.
  • Nail Fungus: Treats fungal infections, particularly when combined with a red LED light

Administering Methylene Blue

  • Prescription: Injectable or intravenous forms from a healthcare provider.
  • Oral Supplements: Troscriptions and Health Natura are advised.

Use With Caution.

This compound, while beneficial for various medical conditions, comes with specific considerations that limit its use among certain groups due to potential risks:

  • Newborns: Healthcare providers caution against using methylene blue in newborns due to their increased sensitivity to the substance.
  • Newborns have immature enzyme systems, making them more susceptible to methylene blue’s effects, which can lead to complications such as methemoglobinemia at a higher rate than in adults.
  • Pregnant Women: Doctors advise against using methylene blue during pregnancy due to its potential to cross the placenta and affect the fetus. The concern here is the risk of inducing fetal abnormalities or oxidative stress on the fetal blood cells, which can lead to methemoglobinemia in the fetus.
  • Nursing Mothers: It can pass into breast milk and may affect a breastfeeding infant.
  • Given the potential for adverse effects on the infant, including the risk of methemoglobinemia, healthcare providers discourage its use in breastfeeding women.
  • People with G6PD Deficiency: Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is a genetic disorder that affects red blood cell viability. Individuals with this condition are at an increased risk of hemolytic anemia when exposed to certain substances, including this compound. Methylene blue can exacerbate oxidative stress in red blood cells, leading to their premature destruction in people with G6PD deficiency.
  • Contraindication with Certain Antidepressants: Methylene blue is known to interact with certain types of antidepressants, raising the risk of serotonin syndrome. This condition is caused by excessive levels of serotonin in the brain and can be life-threatening. Symptoms include confusion, rapid heart rate, high blood pressure, dilated pupils, loss of muscle coordination, and in severe cases, death. The risk is particularly high with antidepressants that increase serotonin levels, such as SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors), SNRIs (Serotonin and Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors), and MAOIs (Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors). One should avoid or closely monitor the combination of these medications with methylene blue.

Given these considerations, the prescription of methylene blue requires a careful assessment of your overall health, existing conditions, and current medications to avoid potential adverse effects and interactions.
