Hi,

 

Can someone explain the difference between GABA and Ashwaganda to me. Is it basically the same?

 

Doc has us starting GABA 500mg. 2x daily...possible getting up to 1000mg in AM and 2000 in PM if needed.

 

I also suggested the Ashwaganda for sleep so she said to take 500 mg. 2x day. Said it has alot of other good properties which I did read about.

 

I'm confused though, if i want it mainly for sleep shouldn't I just give at night? Although I've read where some people find it energizes them and some said it makes them sleepy.

 

I did give 1 pill last night and I don't think it did anything yet I do think the GABA help calm him during the day.

 

Also can I give both at the same time?

 

Did get his Cunningham test back, the results:

 

Dopamine D1: 8,000

Diopamine D2: results not back yet

Lysoganglioside: 640

Tublin: 4000

CaM Kinase II: 98

 

So high in everything except the CaM Kinase.....does this mean he's Pandas?

 

thanks for any info

We just got back similar results (6 weeks after ivig):

 

Dopamine D1: 8000 (normal 500-2000)

Dopamine D2: results not back yet

Lysoganglioslide: 1280 (normal 80-320)

Tubulin 8000 (normal 250-1000)

Cam K: 95

 

We ran this study back in 2009 when it was part of the research study. Dd's Cam K was 136, drawn after a steroid burst. D1, Lyso and Tubulin were lower. Anyone have any input on these other anti-neuronal antibody titers?

 

edit- has anyone else had Anti-tubulin at 8000?
