No, but use w/ care: L-tyrosine and acetyl-l-tyrosine supplements are used to improve mood and memory by some persons. They should not be used in combo w/ maoi's as there is a risk of hypertensive crisis. There shouldn't be any major drug interaction w/ prozac (fluoxetine). Acetyl-l-tyrosine has better absorption ; bioavailability so u may need a lower dose of it compared to l-tyrosine. However, use caution and consult your dr.
