    No it will be interesting to see if it helps. Have you had any of the testing done that I know Susan had for her girls? I can't remember the lab. I am going to ask the peds on Thursday to do some of it for Jacob to see if it turns anything up.

    When is your dev. peds appt?

    Default Savanna takes

    3 750 mg capsules 2x a day. I think it helps over time. With Savanna it's kind of hard to tell since her seizure medicine is so messed up right now, but she is taking the GABA for her impulsive behavior and I have noticed that this is much better. Much less feet in my face!

    Go for it and see how it works I say. I also highly recommend the testing too.

    Default It's an amino acid

    That helps support a clam mood. It does something to neurotransmitters that carry information between cells and nerves (or so the bottle says, lol).

    Default You can get it at the health food store

    I get Natural Source or something like that. Anything at the healthfood store should be OK.
