Pyridoxine and Dietary Supplements


Pyridoxine, the water-soluble essential vitamin B6 , has been used extensively as a pharmacological treatment in Asperger's disorder. In the doses used for autistic disorder, it is not being used as a cofactor for normally regulated enzyme function or as a vitamin; rather, it is used to modulate the function of neurotransmitter enzymes, such as tryptophan hydroxylase and tyrosine hydroxylase. The role of pyridoxine, magnesium, and homeopathic treatments remains to be determined even though they enjoy considerable popularity in the community at large.
