Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome: Q-Gel CoQ10 and L-Carnitine – Can they help?

Coenzyme Q10
The use of CoQ10 has not yet been clinically studied for those with CVS but, personal experiences of patients seem to indicate potential benefits of using CoQ10 in reducing the severity and/or frequency of attacks.

L-Carnitine:
L-carnitine is an amino acid-like compound that helps fatty acids to pass into the mitochondria of cells to be converted into energy. It is currently being used by some practitioners in the treatment plan for mitochondrial disorders/dysfunctions and in pediatric cardiomyopathy. In 2002, Van Calcar, Harding, and Wolff, published an article about the use of l-carnitine administration with 6 CVS patients. They reported that the “average time between episodes was 1.7 months before carnitine administration and increased to 1.1 years after carnitine administration,” concluding that “oral carnitine may be useful to control the symptoms in patients with cyclic vomiting syndrome” (Van Calcar, Harding, & Wolff, 2002).

Listed below are a few of our CoQ10 and L-Carnitine products. Please discuss their use with your local health care professional.

Children’s CoQ10 Dosages:

Normally healthy children should NOT need to supplement their diet with CoQ10. Dosages for children with mitochondrial diseases, CVS and other conditions that could be helped with Q-Gel CoQ10 should be discussed with your child’s Doctor. Per our senior scientist, a starting point you may want to discuss would be 3 mg. per pound of the child’s body weight. For example, if the child weighs 20 pounds, start with 20 X 3 mg = 60 mg per day in divided doses, i.e. 20 mg 3 times daily.
