| | ADD medication and orange juice
For what it's worth, we learned that orange juice and other acidic drinks affect the absorption of adderal and other ADD medications. If I take adderal in the morning with oj or drink it during the day, it completely "erases" the effects of the adderal. Have noticed similar effect with Ritalin and Dexedrine.
If you're trying to find medications that work, pay attention to what you or your kids are drinking. For example, orange juice in a brown bag lunch sounds healthy (except for the sugar load), but if your child takes meds at school, the drink may be interfering with absorption.
Just a little tidbit from our experience, and one that not many doctors or pharmacists are aware of.
