The Great Vitamin Search is On

I'm starting to seriously look for a multi-vitamin with the super-high (or closer to the super high) quantities of many of the recommended vitamins for autistic kids. It's DAN! (Defeat Autism Now) protocol to give super high amounts of vitamins. I'm not sure I want to go that high with Nathan being so low end of the spectrum, but I do want a better multi-vitamin than a Flintstones chewable.

I'll keep you posted on what I find. And if you know of one, drop me an email or leave me a comment. I'd love to look at as many as I can. I'm finding the hardest part at the moment is finding a place to get a super-multi-vitamin.
I'll let you know what we discover. In the meantime, we'll keep using our current multi-vitamin and supplementing the things he needs most.

  1. Hi Robyn! I used to work with Renee and you guys borrowed my pack in play on one of your trips down here. Renee was telling me about your blog and also told me about your vitamin search. My mother in law found out earlier in the year that she was very vitamin D deficient. Her doctor perscribed her with a compounded vitamin for her to take, 50,000 mg a month and then gradually lowered that over several months. If you can find a compounded pharmacy in your area, they will be able to compound any kind of vitamin that you need for Nathan. Chase was diagnosed with PDD-NOS last May so I know your challenges and frustration. God Bless!!
