has shown promise in correcting abnormal metabolite excretion from a tryptophan load test.
Autism Asperger syndrome given B6 have shown significant improvement overall, with true
B6 deficiency present. This alternative treatment for autism may have some minor side
effects of irritability, sound sensitivity and bed wetting, however, these can be resolved by
giving magnesium in conjunction with B6.
If B complex in addition to magnesium is given, better eye contact, less self-stimulating
behavior, increased interest in surrounding environment, fewer tantrums and increased speech
