Good question... I dunno what is the answer. I'll do some research and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could help you..
Thanks I will try to do more.
,but has anyone on here felt as they absorb things faster/.
Most Adderal comes in an extended release form. This will not work with a GBS patient. You also cannot take anything with an enteric coating. If either is the case, ask your provider to make a change. It also may be you need more than the recommended dose - that is true of many patients who have NOT had GBS. This can be a problem with drug coverage, but a drs note will usually be able to override their limits...
Forgot to mention you can find out info about doses and types of delivery systems for any prescription med in the Physician's Desk Reference. Most libraries have a copy in their reference section...
I can tell you that Extended Release versions of meds are sometimes avoided in GBS patients. Sometimes, dosing is stretched out to give your body a chance to asorb it..
However, if you are on the standard.
(non-ER) , it generally peaks in your system after 3 hours. Some patients are prescribed.
Twice per day with the maximum dosage around 40mg/day (but occasionally higher - I've heard of 60mg-80mg per day). Many people do not like taking it later in the day because it can interfere with.
It often takes a while to find the optimal dosage of.
- that's why doctors start low and titrate up until an optimal level is reached. Your body will quickly tell you if you're taking too much..
Also, over time you will build a tolerance. This may require periodic increases in dosage - but be advised that there is a maximum dosage beyond which doctors will not go. When this happens,.
Can often be combined with other meds. You really need to explain the situation to the prescribing doctor - regardless of the cause (GBS or otherwise), it sounds like your dosage may need to be increased or perhaps timed differently. I wouldn't worry too much about the WHY but rather on the WHAT to do about it..
Thanks everyone for your replies. I just need to clarify somethingSo we do absorb medication faster than someone who has not had GBS..
GBP patients can't use time released medicines. It has to be multiple doses of short-acting medicine because of the new way our body absorbs things...
