There is a theory out there that Aspergers is sometimes caused by a B6 deficiency. I'd like to warn people to make sure that they consult a doctor before trying it. I learned the hard way.. first time I tried it was amazing, then I took too much over the course of the next couple weeks since it stopped giving the same initial results, and it got to the point that I was in a confused state of mind, still thinking it was working while in reality I could barely follow a conversation. I went to a doctor because I wanted to make sure I got the B6 dosage right and they almost put me in a hospital to make sure I didn't keep taking B6.

I think I stopped in time but it's entirely I did a little long term damage... be extremely careful if giving this to kids as recommended in some places. Initial results may not match results a week down the road.

Keep in mind that if it is a B6 deficiency responsible then it should be detectable via blood test.

Good luck and be safe!

Vitamin B6 Deficiency
Isolated vitamin B6 deficiency is uncommon; inadequate vitamin B6 status is usually associated with low concentrations of other B-complex vitamins, such as vitamin B12 and folic acid [2]. Vitamin B6 deficiency causes biochemical changes that become more obvious as the deficiency progresses [2].
Vitamin B6 deficiency is associated with microcytic anemia, electroencephalographic abnormalities, dermatitis with cheilosis (scaling on the lips and cracks at the corners of the mouth) and glossitis (swollen tongue), depression and confusion, and weakened immune function [1,2]. Individuals with borderline vitamin B6 concentrations or mild deficiency might have no deficiency signs or symptoms for months or even years. In infants, vitamin B6 deficiency causes irritability, abnormally acute hearing, and convulsive seizures [2].
End-stage renal diseases, chronic renal insufficiency, and other kidney diseases can cause vitamin B6 deficiency [3]. In addition, vitamin B6 deficiency can result from malabsorption syndromes, such as celiac disease, Crohn's disease, and ulcerative colitis. Certain genetic diseases, such as homocystinuria, can also cause vitamin B6 deficiency [2]. Some medications, such as antiepileptic drugs, can lead to deficiency over time.

If one nutrient is responsible for complex multi-level neuro changes than there is some serious issues with the DSM.

Aniracetam, Fish Oils, Vitamin B6 and B12, Rolipram, Piracetam -Oxiracetam, dexdrine, GPC-choline, 5-http, Gabba, ETC.

I remember back in the 1990's there was this idea going around that mega-doses of B6 and magnesium could treat/improve/whatever autism. I recall that one possible consequences of too much B6 was peripheral neuropathy.

how I have always viewed nutrition is as follows. Get too much, s**t gets all screwed up, get to little and s**t is all screwed up. Balance is key to say the least.
