This brief video breaks down an essential difference between amphetamine [AMP] and methylphenidate [MPH] stimulants. In 4 min and 50 sec I break down the serious metabolic details for those important medication matters. Think: CYP 450 2D6.
I've discussed these interactions in hundreds of presentations since 1996 when I first discovered how these challenges impede metabolism and create significant ADHD Medication problems. It's encouraging to see that others in the genotyping community now support the measurement of these important variables.
AMP and MPH both have different pathways. AMP is a substrate of 2D6, while MPH blocks 2D6. AMPs are very significantly effected by some antidepressants – so one must pay careful attention.
You can also find even more details here in my [early discount] book New ADHD Medication Rules on this important metabolic subject. And watch for my next video on Prozac, Paxil and amphetamine stimulants, coming tomorrow. It shows specifically why CYP 250 2D6 is so important.
Please do drop a comment if you think this kind of information is helpful for your medical care. And like it ↓ if you think your friends/colleagues should know about this important science.
