Can too much manganese lead to increased and uncontrolled anger in a 10-yr-old with adhd?

Can too much manganese lead to increased and uncontrolled anger in a 10-yr-old with adhd?

Unlikely: I'm not sure what extremely high levels of manganese would do to a person, but i doubt it would cause only increased anger. If you know why it's elevated, stop the cause and see what happens. If you don't know, find a physician to help figure it out. Anger is not uncommon with adhd. If it is new, looking for what has changed is worthwhile; if chronic, work with a professional on that issue. ...Read more

I suffer menieres & bad vertigo. Would b100 vitamins & manganese benefit me? A pharmacist suggested these. Side effects?Thanks

Anecdotal advice: There is no compelling evidence to suggest that manganese and vitamin B complex can help with Meniere's - patients may experience the placebo effect. Important not to overdose on these OTC products. Are you taking acetazolamide and/or on a low-salt diet? See your neurologist or ENT physician for further discussion. http://www.utmb.edu/otoref/grnds/Menieres_061213/Menieres-slides_061213.pdf ...Read more
