I was hoping to find out if anyone knowledgable to possible dietary interventions that may augment dopamine functioning can help me get off my adderall habit (doctor approved, no worries). The problem is that normally, and even before i ever took adderall, i lack any motivation and save everything to last minute. I also have problems concentrating for more than 30 mins max, as I get very fatigued. When i take a very small dose of adderall (5mg), the change is very subtle, but all that i need. I start to feel focused and able to continue my work. I've experimented with higher doses and rest assured the euphoria that drugs supply is amply there, so i stick with the lower dose. Anyways, what dietary methods should i implement to help get off this?!
Omega 3's have been suggested for children with ADD/ADHD. Neptune Krill Oil is a good source, if you don't eat enough fish. I'd suggest 1000 mg/day & see how you feel after 3 months.
Also make sure you are Vitamin D3 and Magnesium replete.
The fatigue and difficulty concentrating make me think you may be deficient in methylcobalamin (B-12) and/or folate (B-9). You could get tests done, or just supplement with them (make sure to get good brands, like jarrow methyl B-12 lozenges, and solgar folate) and see if you notice a difference.
