I am using LaTeX with

\usepackage[super, square, comma]{natbib}

I want to get the citation call-outs in the form of

AA^{1, 6}

But right now I am getting


i.e. without space after the comma. If I add the space option while loading natbib like this -- \usepackage[super, square, comma, space]{natbib} -- then my document can't be compiled.

Your write-up isn't entirely clear since the code fragment you've posted appears to attempt to load the mutually incompatible cite and natbib packages. However, since you've also set the natbib tag, I will assume that you're really looking for a natbib-based solution.

If this assumption is correct, all you need to do is replace

\usepackage[super, square, comma]{natbib}



Feel free to adjust the amount of kerning to meet your aesthetic preferences.
