NEW STUDY! Parasym Plus™ for Multiple Sclerosis › Forums › PrettyIll.com Discussion › POTS › Parasym Plus dosage for 7 year old
Hi, my 7 year old daughter who is almost 50 lbs has been diagnosed with POTS. I also suspect hypermoblie EDS but that hasn’t been diagnosed yet. I am wanting to try Parasym Plus on her but didn’t know how much to give a child. She has been mostly wheelchair bound for the past few weeks and in addition to the rapid heart rate changes due to Pots, she also has vestibular migraines, chronic joint pain in every joint of her body and stomach pain. Thank you.
I’m so sorry to hear that your child is suffering. I know how awful that can be. 🙁 If your child is experiencing symptoms of low acetylcholine release (fatigue, constipation, dry eyes, fast heart rate, etc), I would try 1-2 capsules first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. The chance of getting too much is very slim, but should that happen, your child’s eyes may be very moist, resting heart rate will slow, etc. Please keep us posted, and know that you are superwoman when you can get your child to take necessary pills! lol This is what allowed our young son to start to absorb nutrients again, recover from POTS and fatigue, and heal from severe osteoporosis.
