Low/No Sugar medication help

My 1 yr old daughter is currently being treated for a brain tumor with chemotherapy.  Unfortunately, things are not progressing as we had hoped.  As an alternative with chemo I would like to begin a low/no sugar diet for her to see if this helps with treatment.  I have some ideas for diet changes and recipes, however I want to start a vitamin to supplement some nutritional loss from the chemo.  Does anyone know if there is a vitamin that exists that is low/no sugar added and how to get it?  I am also interested in knowing if there are over the counter medications like tylenol that are no sugar too.  I appreciate and look forward to all of the suggestions.  Thank you!!

Here is a list of sugar free products.  Read the disclaimer warning at the top.  

You can always ask your pharmacist, too.  They can sometimes special order products if they aren't commonly available or stocked in the average pharmacy.

Dear Kelly123,
     i'm afraid that i can't be of more help, but if you are going to ue a low sugar diet, i don't think it is possible to avoid all sugar, but if there is sugar in a vitamin it would be negligable same as with medications like tylenol. i would also suggest talking it over with a doctor before starting this. Sorry i couldn't be more help. bret
