Question
My 13 year old son is on 36 mg/day of concerta to help with ADD. Are there vitamins that concerta will deplete or would you recommend anything to help support organ systems while he is on the medication?

Answer
Hi Tricia,
There are no reported deficiencies caused by concerta, however there have been some possible correlations with B12 and Vitamin D deficiency.  You may want to speak to your pediatrician about having these levels checked and then supplement if deficient.
To your best health,
Dr.R
