Is it safe to take sport supplements such as jack3d or compound 20 , while on prescription ritalin (methylphenidate) 20mg? If not ; why?

Never mix this with any other type of stimulant - you could cause a very serious heart or neurologic problem! your body is a temple - don't fill it full of dynamite! ...Read more

Evidence sketchy: Tyrosine is the precurser for making Dopamine and norepinephrine, both thought to have a role in adhd.
