    Stimulant Equivalent Alternative

    I was recently diagnosed with ADD and my doctor put me on vyvanse to start. After finding that, due to my gastric bypass surgery, I metabolized the medication more rapidly than most. My doctor upped the mgs for the vyvanse and added an adderall IR script.

    The medications are effective, but I'm wondering if there's some combination of vitamins and supplements that could replace one of my stimulant meds but keep the same level of focus.

    Open to any and all suggestions :)

    RE: Stimulant Equivalent Alternative

    Hey there! I have inattentive type and I have found that the combination of Rhodiola, 500-1500 mg of L-tyrosine 3 times a day (30 min before meal, 1 hour after) epa fish oil. 30 min aerobic exercise and stay away from high glycemic foods. Other info can be found in daniel amens healing add. The medical community refers to him as a quack but the supplements and information definitely helped.
