Can a low parathyroid gland effect my medication for adhd?

In brief: U mean low thyroid?

Low parathyroid hormone is a rare condition, usually caused by removal of too much parathyroid tissue during surgery to treat a parathyroid adenoma.
It has no symptoms except the resulting low calcium levels in the blood. Low thyroid is very common and should be treated. It has many psychiatric consequences, including decreased attention and concentration. Your adhd meds will be less effective.
