ilovedogs Posted August 10, 2008 Report Share Posted August 10, 2008 Currently, the supplements we have ds on are working for his OCD, but not for the tics. What I am curious about is whether we will come to a point where it's not safe or effective to be taking this supplement and then where do we go? I have ds on a neuroscience amino acid support product that has B6 and a taurine/4 amino 3 phynelbutyric acid combo. He has been on it for 3 months now and his OCD (mostly disturbing obsessive visions and thoughts) have completely gone away. He still has some situational anxiety and he still tics. So, I guess I'm wondering what my backup plan would be, if needed. Also, is there withdrawl associated with any of the amino acids. I've been reading about the phenylbutric supplement that he is on and many docs/naturos feel that it's not good to take for extended periods of time b/c it's efficacy will diminish. Now, my naturopath doesn't feel this way. She feels that we are healing the broken neurotransmitter bundles and that this is the way to go. I don't want to get carried away with worry but at the same time I want to be safe and I want to make sure I am doing things properly and not just going about this willy nilly. Can anyone else relate? Thanks guys! Bonnie Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
