TMG .vs DMG & dosage questions

Hey, first post, so I'll get right to it.

My daughter is 7 years old, diagnosed last year with High Functioning Austism (not Asperger's) currently taking:

Celexa 10mg (for her anxiety) and it has worked
Intuniv 3mg (for ADHD) we've seen varying results


She is VERY healthy, rarely sick, no intestinal issues, skin conditions, never been on antibiotics, and taller than almost every boy/girl in her grade.

Her main issues seem to be concentration, social skills, outbursts of cursing, meltdowns when she doesn't get what she wants, varying sleep patterns.

Which brings us to my idea of at least trying DMG that a family member gave to use and some reading about it.

DMG dosage for children seems to be 1-4 tablets per day - 125mg tablet
TMG - I can't find the dosage and tablets per day recommendation

So my other questions are:

1 - should I start with DMG OR TMG first ?
2 - if DGM, what other vitamins and their dosage should go with it?
3 - if TMG, what other vitamins and their dosage should go with it?

I see that TMG has an extra methyl molecule, so it's like DMG with an added benefit, but have anyone here used or known someone first hand with any good/bad/indifferent results?

Also, can you take DMG/TMG with Celexa (SSRI) & Intuniv (non stimulant ADHD)

Thanks for your help

Re: TMG .vs DMG & dosage questions

Before giving your child anything like that, you really need to consult her PED. Do not give her anything regardless of how safe the bottle says. If you really want to do that make sure your child is under a DR. care.
