Abstract

Summary: Patients with cyclic vomiting syndrome suffer from recurring episodes of severe nausea and vomiting. This paper presents 6 patients who responded to l-carnitine administration. Average time between episodes was 1.7 months before carnitine administration and increased to 1.1 years after carnitine administration. Average dose of carnitine administered was 50 mg/kg. Oral carnitine may be useful to control the symptoms in patients with cyclic vomiting syndrome. Clin Pediatr. 2002;41:171-174
