Dlpa supplement interaction I would like to ask a question and I intend to consult with my psychiatrist first but would like a second opinion. I am on lamictal, paxil, lithium and Adderall for ADHD and a bipolarii. My mood disorder isn't my biggest burden

Hello,: Hello, there seems to be variable input on this issue. Phenylalanine is an essential Amino Acid which is converted into tyrosine. Tyrosine is then used to produce Dopamine and norepinephrine. Of course, both of these neurotransmitters are impacted by a number of psychotropic medications. Dpla is contraindicated with monoamine oxidase inhibitors and reportedly should not be used with atypical antipsychotics. The majority of sites recommended that d.L. Phenylalanine not be used concurrently with standard antidepressant medications. Several sites recommended that dlpa not be used with Paxil (paroxetine) or with stimulants. Use of dlpa can be associated with insomnia, headaches and increased blood pressure due to overstimulation of the central nervous system. I could not find any literature that addressed using dlpa with lithium. It should be noted that the fda does not regulate supplements and that dosages of the active ingredients are often not standardized. ...Read more

Took 15mg of Adderall and supplemented it with 25 mg of ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate). Will I get the same effect?

Took 15mg of Adderall and supplemented it with 25 mg of ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate). Will I get the same effect?

No, and you shouldn't: Be playing doctor (or pharmacist). Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) has been removed from the American market for some time because it has a great potential to increase pulse and blood pressure, and was associated with a number of severe adverse events in patients taking them, as was phenylpropylamine. What you are doing is abuse, and is not helping your ADHD. Discuss with your psychiatrist if you are having problems. ...Read more

Each: Each psychiatrist has different thoughts regarding this. I recommend that you talk to your psychiatrist about your request for a shorter acting stimulant on some days. Some psychiatrists may wish to keep your medications as uniform as possible (i.e., not changing dose of the basic medication on different days). It is not uncommon to have mixes of stimulants. For instance: a patient uses a long acting stimulant to get him through his workday. The stimulant choice is perfect and starts wearing off at the end of his workday. However, he also goes to night school two days per week. The stimulant has worn off by the time he gets to class. So, a short acting stimulant can be taken in the afternoon to get him through class two days per week. And because it is short acting, it allows him to go to sleep later. None of the doctors here will be able to answer this question because it is one that you and your psychiatrist will need to address together. ...Read more

Is it safe to take Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and workout whilst using nitric oxide supplements?

Is it safe to take Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and workout whilst using nitric oxide supplements?

No: I wouldn't think it's safe to take Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) during workouts. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is an amphetamine which can function like adrenalin. Your blood pressure and heart rate could go up too high. Probably even dangerously high, depending on the dose, potentially causing a stroke or heart attack. Why risk it? ...Read more

Could I get a brain supplement instead of taking so much adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). What do you suggest?

None: There are no "brain supplements" that have been shown to be as effective or safe as a stimulant for treating adhd. If they work, they have a stimulant of some sort, probably one with much less research behind it than either methylphenidate or amphetamine. If they don't have a stimulant, they don't work. ...Read more
