    I am seeing my doctor again soon, and I am hoping to come away with a prescription for ritalin. I have ADD and I've taken it in the past, so I know it does work for me.
    I'm wondering what effect it has on the methylation cycle? I know it is a methyl donor, and it works as a dopamine reuptake inhibitor, and a norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor.

    Should I adjust my supplements whilst taking ritalin?

    I currently take venlafaxine 375mg daily, plus the following supplements -

    Cytoplan Wholefood Multi - Mutivitamin & Mineral containing 6mcg methylcobalamin and 400mcg methylfolate.
    Doctors Best Phosphatidyl serine
    Lecithin
    Opti3 Omega 3 EPA & DHA with added D3
    Lithium Orotate
    L lysine (to help prevent the cold sores)
    Q10
    D ribose
    Magnesium Malate
    Methylfolate 1600mcg
    Methylcobalamin 2000mcg

    Thanks for reading!

    You may find you need to lower the doses when you start, but this approach is similar to what's being done in the Synergy Trial.
