Does Magnesium Help Reestablish Adderall Tolerance
I've heard that a magnesium and potassium supplement can help with Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) tolerance. Is that true?
See answer: Some users of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) suggest that taking magnesium and potassium supplements along with the medication helps to reduce tolerance. However, I am unaware of any validated or reproducible authoritarian sources or scientific research that support these claims. There is some research suggesting that magnesium supplementation might help to improve ADHD type symptoms in children with the disorder. ...Read more
When one takes a drug, such as heroin or alcohol, repeatedly, 'tolerance' develops because more of the drug is needed to give the same effect on the body/brain; e.g. Liver enzymes r stimulated to metabolize the drug faster and faster.

Hello - I take Adderall and Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) daily. May I take a magnesium oxide/zinc sulfate/calcium carbonate supplement?
Both stimulants: Caffiene and psycho stimulants have similar effects raising heart rate/blood pressure, helping people feel more focused but potentially interfering with sleep. Psychostimulants are prescribed to treat attention deficit disorder with or without hyperactivity. Caffeine + meds are additive. Too much can make people feel irritable, agitated with GI upset (nausea). See how it affects you. ...Read more

I've been on Adderall 20mg XR for a week. The last two days it didn't feel as effective. Has my body already built up a tolerance to it that quickly?
How to approach Dr. That my Adderall tolerance has gone up? Been on 60mg daily for 9.5 yrs. Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) only one compareable and doesn't work!
That's a pretty high: Dose. Talk to your doctor about possibly adding a non-stimulant medication as an adjunct. (S)he may need to make changes in your other psychotropic medications, depending on which non-stimulant is selected. Document the onset & duration of action of your current meds & how/when breakthrough ADHD symptoms impact your daily functioning. Just give your doctor the facts. ...Read more

Depends on person.: According to FDA "Individual patient response to amphetamines varies widely. While toxic symptoms occasionally occur as an idiosyncrasy at doses as low as 2 mg, they are rare with doses of less than 15 mg; 30 mg can produce severe reactions, yet doses of 400 to 500 mg are not necessarily fatal."

I've built up tolerance to my prescribed 60mg daily of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR and I'm a little worried. Should I ask the doc to increase or continue w/ this dose?
Already above max:
It is not unusually higher, but your 60mg is already more than the recommended 40mg/day for adults. Paradoxically, iIt's possible that you could even do better on a lower dose. Read this and ask your provider (psychiatrist, I hope): http://www. Healthboards. Com/boards/4025373-post4.html
Please do not just ask a PCP to increase over recommended doses. It's not fair to either of you. Best! ...Read more
If I'm tolerant to amphetamines like adderall in adhd treatment would the tolerance cross over to ritalin (methylphenidate) if I switched?
Tolerance likely: You say you're "tolerant" to amphetamines rather than they're not helping your ADHD. That is a word most ADD/ADHD patients don't use in my experience. If you mean you're not feeling a buzz or more pleasant mood effect from amphetamines, I would recommend avoiding any medication including Ritalin (methylphenidate) which is potentially addictive. There are other meds for ADHD which are safer for you. ...Read more

I have seen that nootropics have been used to combat Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) tolerance, (memantine - namenda) looking on the internet. Holiday not an option?
