In brief: None found effective

Over the past three decades a variety of researchers have tried to treat autism with a variety of supplements.
Since most gradually improve with age, it has been hard for researchers to prove reliably that improvement was due to the supplements. At presennt megavitamins appears to lack any proven benefit. Since some vitamin products can have toxic efects if used in excess, caution is appropriate.

In brief: After Years ... NO

Megavitamins were proposed years ago as a tool to treat autism.
Unfortunately, no evidence of any kind suggesting that this works.
