My 14 yr old son who is takes 40 mg of Vyvanse & 20 mg of Lexapro a day, wants to take a GNC product for weightlifting and the the product if called muscle tech anabolic halo hardcore proseries (post workout) and contains some creatine, caffeine, phenylal

My 14 yr old son who is takes 40 mg of Vyvanse & 20 mg of Lexapro a day, wants to take a GNC product for weightlifting and the the product if called muscle tech anabolic halo hardcore proseries (post workout) and contains some creatine, caffeine, phenylal

Be Careful: Since both vyvanse and Lexapro (escitalopram) have strong effects on the brain's neurotransmitters (norpramine, serotonin, etc) and different requirements for brain enzymes to deal with these drugs I would not take supplements that include creatine and others. Vitamins are generally safe and effective. Stay away from other nutritional products until your doctor can tell you whether they are safe to take.

My wife thinks I should see someone for my caffeine use. Should i?

Depends: Depends on how much caffeine you are using. If you are using up to 4-6 cups a day, that should be ok unless you are having side effects from it. If you are using it because you are excessively sleepy, and especially if you are still sleepy despite the caffeine, you should see a sleep medicine physician for sleepiness.

I quit caffeine use 2.5 weeks ago. I unknowingly had 120 mg of it recently. Will I have to go through the withdrawal process again (being drowsy), etc?

Possibly not: When you use caffeine habitually and then suddenly stop, your body will have withdrawal symptoms. If you've gotten only one dose of it in the last 3 weeks, you may not have the same withdrawal effect again.

Why do doctors tell you not smoke or to use caffeine before a methacholine challenge test?

For unaltered result: Since both caffeine (which can relax the bronchial muscle tone) and smoking - (which can irritate bronchial muscle tone making it more sensitive) - can affect the test - these factors and others are to be avoided ahead of a methacholine test which is trying to guage the patient's baseline bronchial reactivity (often to investigate the presence of asthma).
