My Sam doesn't take Juven, but does take l-arginine. We use the Nitrate 3 Fuel Shot by Twin Labs, but it is no longer available. Luckily I stocked up. He takes 3tsp per day, which is 3000mg (3g). He's 6 and is 40lbs. He's been on this same does for over 2 years now.

Very interesting to read these improvements for your son. I'm so glad to hear it! Our son, Jake, was just diagnosed last year. He's been on Deflazacort, a multi-vitamin, calcium, CO Q-10 and vitamin D. I'm wondering if we need to add anything else to his regimen. I'd love to hear any recommendations. I'm thinking we would probably need to go with L-arginine if it is less likely to cause weight gain than juven. A while back, he was slightly above his growth curve for weight gain. Anyone know if L-arginine is supposed to be as effective as juven? Also, any ideas on how I would find out the dosage amount? He is four-years-old and weighs about 31 lbs. I appreciate any recommendations!
