Which natural food or vitamin works like Adderall or ritalin (methylphenidate)?

Which natural food or vitamin works like Adderall or ritalin (methylphenidate)?

Caffeine & xanthines: Caffeine & xanthines are naturally occuring stimulants & widely available in many products. They are weaker than Adderall or Ritalin (methylphenidate) and shorter acting but have similar effects overall. There is no evidence that any vitamins have stimulant activity. Stimulants are among the best-studied and safest medications we have, when used appropriate. "natural" doesn't mean safe: hemlock is natural. ...Read more

I want to drink 18 shake luxury meal replacement, it has ascorbic acid vitamin c 18 mg 30 % day value, I take the instant release Adderall two times a day, will this protein 18 shake with vitamins especially c make my adderrall less effective?

Gastrointestinal: Acidifying agents like ascorbic acid decrease the absorption, &, therefore, the blood level & clinical effect of Adderall, Adderall XR & Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). See www. Drugs. Com/cdi/adderall-xr-extended-release-capsules. Html. Always tell your doctor before taking new medications, herbs, vitamins & supplements. Long-acting Adderall XR or Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) are easier to dose/ titrate & generally have less "rebound" effect. ...Read more

Can I drink Advocate spark energy drink mix which contains vitamin and amino acid supplement with being on Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)?

Can I drink Advocate spark energy drink mix which contains vitamin and amino acid supplement with being on Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)?

Caffeine caution: From what I found, there is 120 mg of caffeine in an 8 oz. Spark energy drink, which is similar to amount in 8 oz of coffee. Too much caffeine can increase heart rate, raise blood pressure, anxiety and cause insomnia. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) has similar side effects. Monitor your caffeine content especially while taking Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). I hope this helps. Best wishes. ...Read more

Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) & adderall r: Both stimulants used to treat ADHD, and may both b prescribed to the same pt though its more common to see only 1 stimulant type used in a single pt. vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is a derivative of Dexedrine, while adderall is amphetamine salt.

They could be but...: There are many different "pill" vitamins and many different gummy vitamins, so it is impossible to make a blanket statement. Just as some pills are better than others, some gummies are better.

FDA does not approve: The fda does not "approve" vitamins though the fda does regulate vitamins- see http://www. Fda. Gov/aboutfda/transparency/basics/ucm194344.Htm
this does not mean they are not good. Over 100, 000 people die in the us each year from taking properly prescribed fda-approved drugs. There are no known deaths reported from vitamins in recent years. Fda approval does not mean something is safe! ...Read more

Vitamins that actually work are expensive. Are the common vitamins in pharmacies any good?

Not as good: In general the brands of vitamins sold in most pharmacies are inferior to those sold at health food stores as they tend to have toxic additives like artificial colors & much more likely to have synthetic E (which is hazradous) as opposed to natural E, etc.
You can find a quality Men's Multiple like Adam from NOW for about $10 a month on sites like amazon, so quality multis can be affordable. ...Read more

Can I take B-12 supplment or any multi-vitamin pills or drinks? Are they good for you, and do they even work?

Vitamins: A good multivitamin is a good idea. It's like an insurance policy for when we don't eat right, don't sleep well, or are especially stressed. Go to a good store or get some guidance because the popular brands are typically very week and not helpful. B12 (sublingual is best) is good for vegetarians, nerve health, energy. ...Read more

None, but...: There aren't any otc herbs, vitamins, or supplements that treat lupus, but that may be a good thing. Once a person has lupus, she has an autoimmune disease. Her immune system is no longer working right. However, it would be quite frightening if companies were selling over-the-counter herbs, vitamins, or supplements that were strong enough to alter the function of people's immune systems. ...Read more
