Success with Inositol

Hi, Everyone.

Just wanted to let you know that I've had some great success taking Inositol. I think I read about it here (?).

I noticed it worked within a couple of days (maybe sooner). I'm taking 730 mg twice a day (with food) and the tics are much reduced. I'm finding I don't need to take the clonazepam/Klonopin. I'm going to start taking it 3x a day, as recommended and see how much it might help.

I also take a super B-complex, time-release. Not sure if that works with the Inositol....I take a bunch of other vitamins, minerals too.

Hope it works for others!

Re: Success with Inositol

Thank you very much for your information. I am so interested in what you did. I think my daughter needs to try it. Could you please let me know what kind of tics that the inositol can works (motor tic or vocal tic? my daughter has blinking tics for about 2 months). and how much a 26Kg child can take per day? Hope to hear from you again and provide us with more detail information about your experience.
Your help is highly appreciated.

Re: Success with Inositol


Just tried to post and was an error (ugh). Hope this one goes through.

Motor tics. Not sure about the vocal tics since mine are infrequent, when I'm nervous and I don't often even notice. My motor tics are mild to medium, definitely a lot more infrequent since taking the inositol.

I can't recommend a dose for a child since I'm not qualified. I suggest you ask for advice from a specialist in a health store. Also, see an Alternative Medicine specialist, preferably an MD.

Keep in mind too what works for some doesn't work for everyone. It's a bit of trial and error huh? A bit frustrating but hopefully you will find the right combo for your daughter. I've learned to never stop researching (over time). Something new always pops up.

Good luck!
