Zara,

You should stop both Asunra and IP6 until the child is well again. Once his stomach is well, you can start Asunra at half a dose for a few days to see if his tummy can handle it.

All we are saying is give thals a chance.

Thanks for ur replies ANDY and lokhi maa.
I have stopped both medicines but ANDY he is taking asunra for almost 6 months and he hadn't got any problem with that. I was asking about ip6 that can it cause stomach problems?

Zara,

I began giving my son IP6 when he was 8 or 9 years old. He didn't have any stomach associated problems with it.  If your child is not tolerating it well then you can stop it.  As with anything you should start at a minimal dose with anything, including IP6.  I would give him a break and at a later time reintroduce it in very small quantity and slowly over several weeks give your child the full dose.

Thanks a lot for your replies.
Yes I have stopped giving him ip6 and I think I will not give it to him until he is 2 1/2 or 3 years old. He is just too small to tolerate both asunra and ip6. In foreign countries Dr's don't recommend giving asunra before a child is 2 years. But I gave my son asunra when he was just 16 months old. I am glad that he hadn't got any big problem with that except of high ALT and I hope it will also lower down IN SHA ALLAH.

I got milk thistle from a big medical shop in rawalpindi. But we haven't got natural vitamin E capsules till yet. I haven't been able to go to GNC.

Thanks alot umair.
I want to ask ANDY that can we cut the soft gel capsules and give it to our baby and what is the dose for 2 year old baby? Which ones are the best mixed tocopherol or other one?
And if we buy the liquid or oil form is it still same good bcz most ppl use the syrup or oil for using on the skin for beauty purposes? I am really confused about vitamin E but want to give it to my son as soon as possible.

Zara, you can cut the E capsules and squeeze the liquid out of them. It has a slightly nutty taste (I have taken it this way). Mixed tocopherols are best, but the main thing is that it is d-alpha and not dl-alpha tocopherols.

What will be the dose for a 2 year old baby? And what do you say about liquid vitamin E oil or syrup? We have to give that with drops.

The dose should be 100 IU daily for a young child. If you can find quality vitamin E liquid, that is fine as well. Compare prices and use what makes sense.

Hello everyone
My son is almost 2 and a half year now and he is taking asunra since last 9 months. Last month we noticed that he started blinking his eyes rapidly almost all the time. We took him to the eye specialist and he said that maybe it's happening bcz of asunra and his eyesight is just a little bit weak with a very minor no. We don't give glasses to normal children but you should use glasses for him. His haemotologist said that we should stop asunra for 2 weeks and see if there is a difference. We stopped it for a week and his eyes became better and he stopped blinking so we again started asunra. Now from last 3,4 days I can see that he is rapidly blinking his eyes again and especially at times when he watches TV or mobile. He blinks and rubs his eyes. Yesterday he was blinking so much like 2 blinks per sec. I have again stopped asunra and today his eyes were better. What do you say Andy Battaglia? Is asunra affecting on his eyes or something else?
What should we do now?
