[Vitamin A's] RDA is 5000 IU (2500 IU 1-4 years). Supplements usually are 10,000-50,000 IU per capsule.
Fish-liver oils may contain over 180,000 IU/g. [!]
Acute toxicity effects include headache, nausea, vomiting, drowsiness and/or desquamation after 24 hours.
Chronic toxicity affects the skin and mucous membranes, the musculoskeletal and neurological systems. Skin and mucous membrane effects include erythema, eczema, pruritus, dry and cracked skin, conjunctivitis, palmar and plantar peeling and alopecia.
Musculoskeletal effects include pain and tenderness, particularly over the long bones of the upper and lower extremities, which may be exacerbated by exercise.
Epiphyseal capping and premature epiphyseal closure may occur in children.
Neurological effects include frontal headache and blurred vision.
Findings also include papilledema, hepatomegaly, ascites, erythematous dermatitis or bulging fontanelle in infants.
: Hi There,
: Dr Megson doses the CLO based on a child's weight. There is a protocol
: by Dr. Woody McGinnis based on Dr. Megson's research. For children
: 2-5 years old it is suggested that 2500 IU CLO be given in 2 divided doses.
: That would be 1250 IU twice a day. I have found this too high for my 3 and 1/2
: year old and have dropped to 625 IU twice a day. You may want to visit Dr.
: Megson's website at www.megson.com. CLO must be given for 2 months
: then Urecholine must first be given in the DR's office as there can be a problem
: with bronchospasm or bronchil constriction at which case , atropine would be given
: immediately. They use a small dose of Urecholine in a liquid form. I called Dr. Megson's
: office and asked, but you can take a copy of her study to an MD and when it is time
: for the Urecholine it can be given in the Dr's office.Then they give you instructions for
: at home dosing.
: Hope this helps,
