Caution Interaction: Calcium is not a problem with Concerta (it can be for Ritalin (methylphenidate) la) since Concerta is not ph sensitive, as far as i know. There is no contraindication to the use of vitamin b-12.

Caution: There are no harmful interactions with Vitamin B12. However Calcium can reduce the time release properties of Concerta, by breaking down the barriers in the beads. You might want to avoid the calcium in the morning, when you take Conerta, and take the calcium at night, after the Concerta has worn off.
