Best Supplements for Aspergers Syndrome

My 8-year-old son has mild Asperger's, which often results in "sticky" thoughts and vocal tics. By "sticky" thoughts I mean these obsessive ideas that he just can't get past. For instance, if he forgets to watch a favorite TV show, he will whine, complain, and cry about it for hours afterward. The thought gets "stuck" in his head.

He is very aware of this problem, and when I say, "Is your brain sticky today, Buddy?" he'll say, "Yes, but I can't help it!"

As a result of the anxiety, he also gets mild vocal tics. Sometimes it's a gulping noise, sometimes it's a strange sound we have dubbed the "platypus noise." The tics aren't serious, but they are somewhat worrisome.

I have found that the following combination of supplements works WONDERS for my son's sticky brain. I give them to him every  morning with breakfast, and his tics have stopped almost completely:

Nature's Plus Animal Parade multivitamins (2 chewable tablets a day)
Nature's Plus Orange Juice Jr. (1 chewable tablet, 100 mg)
Source Naturals Attentive Child (1-2 chewable tablets)
Carlson's Fish Oil (1 tsp)



I am not trying to tout these supplements as "wonder drugs" or anything. They just seem to work for my son. If you are having similar problems, do some research and use trial and error to find the right combination for your child. ALWAYS read the labels and don't ever give more than the recommended dose, unless of course your doc says it's OK.

I discovered that this magic formula worked for my son this past summer when I actually stopped giving him all vitamins and supplements. I figured he was home from school and flu season was over, so he didn't need all those extra nutrients. Within a month of being off supplements, he was a different kid. He was throwing fits every day, his brain got stuck on EVERY little thought that entered his head, and his tics came back. I put him back on the supplements, and the symptoms went away.

Feel free to share your own experiences with vitamins and supplements. I'd love to hear from readers about this issue.
