: Thanks Grandma Peg for the information on Vit. C and E before A! Graham was experiencing sleeplessness, itching/burning puffy eyes and doing alot of side gazing (moving his head from right to left) and was highly excitable and got frustrated easily. I know we had changed some nutrients/supplements and I had started him on the Vit. A. I took him off the vitamin A today to see if there was a difference. He did not have any eye symptoms and no side gazing. He went to sleep at normal time tonight and stayed asleep. He also seemed to be in a calmer, happier demeanor. Yet, when he was taking Vit. A he seemed to be more vocal and exploring him mouth (he is non-verbal and has some movement difference problems with his body). I cant help but believe it is making a deep positive impact but I get alittle unsettled that these other symptoms are surfacing or resurfacing. I had read some past info on (this) board about a parent inquiring as to anyone experiencing their child having burning/itching eyes while on Vit. A and it got me concerned enough to try taking him off it. He is 13 and was on the normal RDA of 5000 IU split into morning/evening 2500 dose. Have you had anyone else have experiences such as this or any advise?? Thanks again, Cheryl

Comment: Some of the adverse reactions to Vit. A are the same as not having enough vit. A. Make sure your vit.A is CLO or pure fish oils, no added boosters. Dr. McGinnis says it's not unusual for standard CLO's to be spiked with the synthetic Vit. A-palmitate- to boost the IU rates. If he stil has a reaction to fine fish oils, you might try the A's made from veggie sources...or animal liver. The Megson-McGinnis protocol calls for fish oils but if your child reacts to it, try another source. Also, try reducig the amount given per day. Perhaps you can work up to the suggested amount. If he stil shows adverse reactions, IMO, I'd go to the other sources and still avoid the palmitate. If he happens to have the same reactions, I'd also see if he reacts to other oil vit.-supplements other than A. Do youhave a DAN dr. to consult with? Grandma Peg
