ADHD Medications Don't Work Predictably… 

– If the fact that your mind inevitably connects to biologically active body challenges that alter medication metabolism is overlooked or simply denied as relevant.

GI variables often seem so mysterious…

Should BM frequency, the ubiquitous #2 – so relevant to ADHD medication metabolism – fly by any comprehensive medical evaluation unaddressed? I don't think so. Download these instructions on Transit Time:

At CorePsych we ask about #2 frequency and other details with every single new patient, no matter how attractive, how professional, how adolescent, how old or how young, they get the questions about bowel function. – Interesting anecdotal point shared by many attractive male and female clients – no one asks. Draw your own conclusions.

    Wow! I knew it! But why didn’t my child’s Dr???? My 8 year old has been prescribed several different stimulants in the past couple of years to help control his ADHD. All 3 that we tried (we did not keep him on any for more then a couple of days) stayed with him for at least twice as long as it was supposed to. On an “8” hour dose of one of the stimulants, he was up for almost two days! My worst nightmare… to put him on a drug and then he has some crazy side effect.

    The only thing he has been on for the past year and a half is Intuniv [ER] 1 mg (the intro dosage) because it does help w/ his hyperactivity. We tried to up the dosage to 2 mg at the Dr’s suggestion because it was the “Active dosage” for his size, but guess what…. that’s right, the poor child was desperately tired… falling asleep at his desk at school. Miserably irritable because of being so tired. I kept him on it for 2 months, because I was soo hoping it would be “the one”. Instead we brought him back down to the 1 mg and that’s where he’s been.

    The first psychiatrist did comment that he definitely metabolized the medication differently then he was supposed to… but why did he not suggest that I go get his GI checked?

    Thank you sooo much for the work that you do and the information. I feel relieved that I finally have a starting point for my child to get the help that he needs. I will be taking him to get his GI checked and anything that goes along w/ it before he sees the psychiatrist again.

    Thank you for confirming my gut feeling (no pun intended).

    • Thanks Nichole,
      Just remember: Most GI docs are focused on life and death not brain function, and think IgG is quackery – in spite of the multiple world experts in the Gluten Summit – accessible on the Home page here at CorePsych.

    My transit time is complicated because due to a deteriorating neuropathic condition I find it necessary to take pain medications. I have settled on one for a while – Butrans weekly patch – but as with any such medications (opiates), constipation is a frequent side effect. Therefore my transit time is probably not reflective of my liver function but has more to do with if I need a laxative. And I’ve tried a number with varying results. Unfortunately prior pain relief also involved opiates. So I cannot really recall when I was without an outside agent having some impact (last 3 years).

    • Brian,
      Don’t mean to sound like him beating the bushes for business, because it’s really busy here, – but you really do need a complete workup from top to bottom with IgG, neurotransmitters, and very importantly trace elements. When you have a chronic mind and body condition the only way to move forward is from the perspective of informed maps, and diminished “maybe-work.” Yes, we can do it long distance, just have to connect with our patient care coordinator at Services:
