Ritalin absorption & PH/ acidity level?
Blahblah posted a topic in CNS Stimulants - Warped & WiredHow can I optimize the absorption of my Ritalin? After 4 years, effects are inconsistent and usually it's like I've taken nothing. I have tried varying dosage, changing breakfast, taking it without food, more protein or less, etc. I don't drink juice or any soda, eat very healthy diet. I've taken long med breaks. Often after lunch, i take a dose and feel very drowsy. It used to make me feel energetic, productive and allow me to get through the day without napping. Now I just zone out & feel lethargic. I know that med absorption is highly dependent on a persons PH level. (I believe my level is very acidic, because i drink coffee everyday, eat a lot of fruit, have gas). My dentist said my tooth enamel is worn down (and it's often due to high body acidity) Will taking Sodium bicarbonate (which reduces body acidity) maybe help? Or will this further reduce absorption?
