It's not really my area of knowledge as my son does not have epilepsy, but I can look something out. Just a precaution, which I'm sure you would take anyway, is to mention to your daughter's epilepsy specialist whatever it is you want to do. You may get a response along the lines of 'it won't do any harm, but there's no evidence for it working' as I have on occassion. I've never let it put me off.
Obviously you need to do a lot of reading. I've done B6 (which needs magnesium to be effective) for my son and it now forms part of the supplementing we do. In fact if you sign up to the DAN! webcast Bernard Rimland is talking about B6 there, but I haven't looked at it yet.
Only ever try one thing at a time. You can buy Kirkman's products (developed with Bernard Rimland specifically for autism) from the Nutricentre website and collect Tesco clubcard points (top tip!).

Just ran this in the background while I was clearing up. If you can get past the Jon Pangborn presentation (too technical) to Bernard Rimland (the chap with the Fidel Castro beard) you will get a good feel for it.

I tried all the other things like mag B6 etc before hand from Kirkman and mine hated the taste and we ended up throwing them away.
This seems to go really well and we also supplent my sons diet with a vanilla flavoured Fish oils which we add into a yoghurt or fruit puree so he cant taste it either!
If you need any more info plse pm me!
