So the Strattera worked for me some but not spectacularly. I am now trying Vyvanse and as warned, my blood pressure is going up. I had gotten it to go down to a pre hypertension level with Vitamin D. I had my colonoscopy on Friday and the stuff I took had gobs of sodium in it and my BP was way high. I couldn’t be on Vitamin D for the four days before the procedure and then on Monday I started the Vyvanse. My last reading was 160/90!!! I am goin to go down and get on the bike to do some cardio and then retake it. I feel sleepy even though I slept last night.
I took some notes on calcium citrate & magnesium and they are as follows:
Take one citracal one time @ bedtime. I need 1200 mg a day. Calcium citrate is supposed to make you sleepy. I’ll take one in the a.m. I will eat yogurt and drink milk to get calcium in that way.
1 Citracel = 400 mg
Taking magnesium with calcium helps avoid constipation. If I do get constipated I should take a stool softner.
Calcium with Vitamin D is a must for absorbtion. Citracal has Vitamin D in it
