MSB+ = Zombie???
Reply with quote

I'm a big skeptic regarding these various supplements. Even more so after talking with Oliver's geneticist ("don't waste your money" he advised.) And my sister, the dietitian/nutrition Ph.D. scientist/researcher/professor/dept. chair. ("There is zero research into their claims. Just give Oliver a multivitamin and Omega 3 supplement" she says.)

However, I kept reading all of the stories on here and the apparent amazing effect MSB+ has had on your children. So, hmmm, I became very intrigued and decided to give it a go. Ordered the samples and I've been trying it, off and on, for a couple of months now.

But what I find is, it turns Oliver into a bizarre clingy zombie!!!!

What I mean by that is, when I give him the MSB+, all he wants to do is sit on me and be held. And won't interact with me. Won't talk to me. He just seems so sullen and sad and out of it. His personality and energy disappear.

I don't think it upsets him stomach. He doesn't tell me his stomach hurts. He doesn't throw up or get diarrhea. No constipation. (But huge pees?!) He just seems totally different!

So, I try it for a couple of days, then he gets into his zombie mode. I take him off of it for a couple of weeks. Then try it again and the same thing happens again. So I think I'm done trying the MSB+. Sad to say, we didn't have all the miraculous improvements that so many of you report.

Anyone else have anything like this???????

we are experiencing the complete opposite, he's full of energy all day running and wanting me be with him every single moment singing and dancing, I'M TIRED! i guess i need to start on msb+ too

i didnt gave it for 3 days because i couldn't find the spoons and guess what? he was the most quiet boy, sleeping too much! even had 4 hour nap

i guess i will keep with MSB+, we haven't had drastic changes, but he's making noises all day, trying to say words, walking better, running faster, trying to jump, counting 1-2-3, and paying attention to some stuff he didn't before

Try reducing the dose.

Perhaps you could call the company and talk to them about it. They may have some insight. Or you could try Nutrivene, as they are good about making custom formulas. They may be able to advise if there is a certain component that should be omitted for Oliver's case.

I wouldn't give up just yet. Good luck!!

Joel had an allergic reaction to Nutrivene, so I too have put supplements on the back burner for now. We are pretty certain it was the papain but I'm not going to customize again until we see an allergist. For the time being, I just put him on plain ole Polyvisol and am going to start Omega 3.

Nutrivene will send you custom samples to try. I was working with someone by the name of Jeanine who is very informative and helpful.

Well, I was quite skeptical to begin with. And I hate what I see when I give it to Oliver. So I am not going to bother with lowering the dosage or customizing it. We're done. I guess I was just curious if anyone else ever experienced a similar thing.
