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
