Calcium supplement and Adderall XR

I am wondering if taking a calcium supplement will have any effect on my adderall.
Due to IBS I am needing to take a calcium supplement (or half really) with each meal and don't want to have any interactions.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Make sure you take magnesium as well and you should be fine

Unfortunately, magnesium is something I need to avoid. It has the opposite effect of the calcium carbonate. IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) is a lot of work. Ugh.

Well, depending on the calcium supplement you take will determine the possible interaction with Adderall. For example, if you are taking calcium carbonate it can actually potentiate the effects of Adderall.

I would suggest that you call your pharmacist or Dr and ask them about whether or not they think you should take any calcium carbonate with your Adderall.

The calcium suppliment if in the form of either calcium carbonate or dolomite may actually reduce stomach acid and could intensify the effect of the stimulant medication. You do not want to take anything like an antacid at the same time you take stimulant medications as you could end up with a much higher dose of adderall in your blood than intended.

Great, calcium carbonate is the one form of calcium that is supposed to help with the IBS symptoms. I'll definitely talk to my pharmacist and doctor.

I use peppermint oil in a capsule for my IBS. I think the brand is called 'mintek'.

I've found they help me a fair bit but I'm sure it's different for everyone.

Good luck and I understand how much IBS can suck

Re: Calcium supplement and Adderall XR

Hi, looking into calcium supplementation myself- but as for the IBS, you know there is a dietary protocol that can take care of that, right? You would start with taking a LOT of vitamin D once a week, like at least 25,000 IU if not 50 or more, then. Add probiotics in every form (pills, kombucha, sourkrout, Greek yogurts etc) DAILY, then make sure you get magnesium by rubbing magnesium oil on your body and allowing it to absorb for twenty minutes minimum- if you don't do this do Epsom salt baths as often as possible, if not daily. These plus cutting starch and sugars for a while and sticking to a strictly grilled meat and steamed veggies of every kind (initially stick to the lower fiber veggies and do not take a fiber supplement, causes more harm than good when bad bacteria is overbalanced and when your gut is inflamed, later on after you heal your leaky gut prob you can eat an abundance of fibery veggies) for several weeks, eat yogurt daily. Try this for a while and completely abandon all processed foods, stick only to whole produce and meats, oh and bone broth daily is wonderful for the nutrient content, easy slow cooker instructions everywhere online... Once you get your leaky gut under control by not feeding the inflammation and allowing your intestinal inflammation to subside, then you can gradually add back in certain foods that you enjoy while watching carefully for affects. Some you'll have to abandon permanently (my husband healed his leaky gut and is now comfortable with eating pizza occasionally and sandwhiches a few times a week, without living in the restroom. After a severely restricted diet for several months and a lot of grumpiness, his gut is healed and ojs arthritis flare ups are almost gone, and he's back to eating a relatively normal and fairly healthy diet that doesn't make him feel like a prisoner, you can do it).
If you're taking a multivitamin, ditch it, the minerals block absorption and it's pointless. Since you have an inflamed gut you have problems breaking down nutrients, so I know you are b-12 deficient. To correct this you must take not only a b-complex (alive is great, to cover the b1, b6, all the bases) but also take a SUBLINGUAL b12 supplement, in either methylcobalamine or just cobalamine- but NOT cyanacobalamin (crappy form, more harm than good, utilizes many of the nutrients just to put it in a form your body can then use, but uses up too many vitals) Solgar is my fav brand, it's on amazon and at vitamin shoppe- and to boost b-12 absorption take a Folate, not folic acid, along with it.

Just one of a few sources I looked up about leaky gut. I think anything is possible btw just that when i hear heavily promoted supplement treatments I get a little wary.
