Methylene Blue Capsules, Compounded at Town & Country Compounding
We can compound various strengths for your patients.
Quality of compounded methylene blue capsules is important.
Methylene blue is prescribed in various dosage forms for different conditions in medicine, yet when practitioners want to prescribe capsules, patients have a hard time finding them. The capsule form of methylene blue isn’t commercially manufactured by a drug company, therefore, it won’t be found at standard “big box” retail pharmacies. Methylene blue should be compounded at a high-quality compounding pharmacy, one that is PCAB certified.
It is important to use a pharmacy that is experienced in compounding and uses the highest quality chemicals in compounding, meaning you should verify they are using methylene blue, USP grade, not another technical grade of methylene blue. At Town & Country Compounding, we compound methylene blue on a regular basis, 50-mg capsules are common, but other strengths may be prescribed.
Methylene Blue: Lyme Disease and Bartonella
The bacteria that causes Lyme disease is Borrelia burgdorferi, yet an infection that often accompanies Lyme disease and can cause more distressing symptoms for the patient is Bartonella. This co-infection is difficult to diagnose and very hard to eradicate. While Lyme disease is transmitted mainly by a tick, Bartonella has many vectors.

Methylene Blue: Alzheimer’s Disease
As our bodies age, we have chronic weakening in our circulatory system. This decreases the blood flow (therefore, oxygen supply) to the brain. Crucial to this process is cytochrome oxidase (CO), a mitochondrial enzyme that catalyzes a cell reaction vital to aerobic energy production.
As of now, there are nearly 50 million people living with dementia with a prediction of 75 million by 2030. There is an enormous need for new disease-modifying therapies to tackle this Alzheimer’s Disease (AD).

Methylene Blue Preserves Cytochrome Oxidase Activity and Prevents Neurodegeneration and Memory Impairment in Rats with Chronic Cerebral Hypoperfusion
“Chronic cerebral hypoperfusion in neurocognitive disorders diminishes cytochrome oxidase activity leading to neurodegenerative effects and impairment of learning and memory. Methylene blue at low doses stimulates cytochrome oxidase activity and may thus counteract the adverse effects of cerebral hypoperfusion…”
