Attacking a midlife ADHD diagnosis

Cognitive Enhancement 512 Updated: 2016-06-23 ADD@45
This is the evolving combination of prescription medication, vitamins, and supplements I'm using to manage a recent mid-life ADHD diagnosis. Finally having a name for a lifelong problem is a powerful thing. It's knowing what you are fighting and finding allies in the same fight.

Potential Interactions
There is some evidence that magnesium may enhance calcium absorption.
Refrences
  • Briscoe AM, Ragan C. Effect of magnesium on calcium metabolism in man. Am J Clin Nutr 1966;19:296-306.
Vitamin D’s most important role is maintaining blood levels of calcium. Therefore, many doctors recommend that those supplementing with calcium also supplement with 400–1,200 IU of vitamin D per day.
Refrences
  • Norman AW. Intestinal calcium absorption: a vitamin D-hormone-mediated adaptive response. Am J Clin Nutr 1990;51:290-300.
Zinc competes for absorption with calcium. A multimineral supplement will help prevent mineral imbalances.
Refrences
  • Argiratos V, Samman S. The effect of calcium carbonate and calcium citrate on the absorption of zinc in healthy female subjects. Eur J Clin Nutr 1994;48:198-204.

Supplementing with folic acid in amounts as little as 300 to 800 mcg per day may increase vitamin B12 requirements. Therefore, it would be prudent for people taking folic acid to supplement with vitamin B12.

Supplementation with vitamin B12, even in relatively small amounts, can increase folic acid requirements, For that reason, people taking vitamin B12 supplements should also consider taking folic acid.

In addition, supplementing with folic acid can mask the laboratory diagnosis of vitamin B12 deficiency. Failure to identify and treat vitamin B12 deficiency in a timely manner can lead to permanent neurological damage. The relatively small amount of vitamin B12 present in most supplements is not sufficient to prevent or correct vitamin B12 deficiency in people who have pernicious anemia (a condition caused by vitamin B12 malabsorption). For that reason, people should tell their doctor if they are taking folic acid supplements, so that the doctor will order alternative laboratory tests if vitamin B12 deficiency is suspected.

  • Steiner I,Melamed E. Folic acid and the nervous system. Neurology. 1983 Dec;33(12):1634
In a study of healthy men, supplementation with a large amount of zinc (142 mg per day) decreased magnesium absorption. Magnesium supplementation should therefore be considered for people taking large amounts of zinc, and possibly for those taking lower amounts.
