Acidic/Alkaline foods: how they effect my medication
This is my first post. I am really glad to finally find a website like this. I have never received answers when posting on other sites.

I take Adderall for school (finishing up degree). Originally it was the best decision I had ever made. My tolerance level started building up after a couple of months, and now (after 6 mo.) I can fall asleep studying after a dose. My doctor has increased the dosage as far as he says he can.

I have tirelessly searched the web for info to reduce my tolerance level again. I've discovered that 'acidic' foods hinder Adderall by passing it through my system quicker. I also heard (a little tid-bit of info) that Vitamin C hinders it. Though I could use your knowledge on this.

I have gone on an alkaline diet (over the past couple of weeks) and am taking a green powder (detox)from Y.S. Organic Bee Farms.
It has 'Spirulina, Chlorella, Barley & Wheat Grass with BEE POLLEN.

1. IS THIS PRODUCT CAUSING MY ADDERALL TO PASS THROUGH EVEN MORE QUICKLY? It seems that medication being acidic might push through quicker with a detox (in my system), I dont know? I have been doing a detox because I thought it might aid the tolerance level (cleaning out toxins).

2. WHAT CAN I DO TO LOWER MY TOLERANCE LEVEL? Suppliments like Magnesium, or any herbs? Diet?

Thank you so much, maybe I can finally get some answers, since I have been so diligent (and hardworking) searching for a answer to this huge dilemma.

Adderall is a combination of several stimulants usually given for ADHD or other hyperactive disorders.  People will often build up a tolerance to the dosage, but once you have reached the maximum dose, you can do nothing other than change medications.  After a year or so you may attempt a return to the med, but the tolerance will return after a short time. Changing your diet will not help lower or reverse your tolerance.  The supplements you are taking may be affecting the absorbtion of the drug. You can check with your local pharmacist about drug/supplement interaction.  Make sure you tell him/her about all the meds or supplements you are taking for a correct evaluation.  This service is free at any pharmacy.  good luck
