Multivitamins and Other Supplements

I've been taking a multivitamin at night to avoid it having an impact on my Adderall absorption; it contains vitamin c and citric acid as an inactive ingredient. The problem is, I believe, that it makes my insomnia worse given that I haven't been sleeping well. I also supplement with Magnesium glycinate and riboflavin (vitamin b2) in the evening as well to help prevent tension headaches.

I guess, I can never win in life; I spend way too much time thinking about these things and whether or not my medication is working properly. Whatevs.

What time do you folks take you multivitamins? The brand I take is the Kirkland brand from Costco in the gummy form.

I could just discontinue use, but vitamins are crucial neurotransmitter production and process.

Re: Multivitamins and Other Supplements

I would always recommend taking a multi vitamin in the morning. The nutrients are there to help you get through your day, you're giving your body unnecessary fuel at night.


Try to avoid eating anything past the evening time as well, you should notice steady improvements to your sleep cycles after several days.

Very good point; thank you. Would you say itís better to take it maybe a couple hours after my first adderall dose? Wouldnít the vitamin c and Citric acid cancel out the Adderall?
