5 Htp And L Tyrosine Together
Can one take propranolol and 5-htp and l-tyrosine together? Are there any interactions between them one should be aware of?
Different: 5htp is a precursor of serotonin, an inhibitory neurotransmitter. L-tyrosine is a precursor of the dopaminergic neurotransmitters Epinephrine and norepinephrine, which are stimulatory neurotransmitters. Although both 5htp and l-tyrosine may act as anti-depressants, they act in completely different ways. 5htp is best taken at bedtime; l-tyrosine should be taken in the am or during the day. ...Read more
Different: These are Amino Acids that the body uises in ver specific ways. Unbalanced use of these Amino Acid have the ability to do far more harm than good. They really should only be managed by physicians who are fully aware of how to use them properly. ...Read more
Interesting question: There is no evidence that it would hurt. J Psychiatry Neurosci suggests: L-Tyrosine does not seem to enhance the release of catecholamines when neurons are firing at their basal rates, but it does when firing rates are increased by stress. The main effects of L-tyrosine that have been reported are acute effects in preventing a decline in cognitive function in response to physical stress. ...Read more

Do the supplements 5-HTP and L-TYROSINE affect the birth control pill? I am on levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) ED. I'm taking the supplements due to my anxiety and depression.
Ask your OB: I don't see these meds on the contraindication list for this combination pill, but I think the prescribing doctor should have explained what to avoid if you told them what medications you are currently taking. Just to make sure, ask the prescribing OB GYN if this is alright ...Read more

Probably not: This has been studied, and 5-htp, the precursor for serotonin, is sold in healthfood stores for this purpose. The idea is to flood the body and brain with precursor to increase serotonin (or with tyrosine, norepinephrine), having the same effect as getting an antidepressant. Problem is, you flood the whole body, not just specific parts of the brain, so lots of se not much specific benefits. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am taking L-tyrosine during the day and 5-HTP at night. Are these two supplements addictive? Or any serious side effects? Thank You Very Much!!!
Prescribed Vicodin 5/500 for once monthly menstrual use. Taking l-tyrosine and 5-htp daily- safe to take at same time as 1 Vicodin? Pharmacy unsure.
Vicodin?!: Vicodin is a powerful Narcotic--and very addicting. Its used for pain after major surgery like a hysterectomy or open heart surgery. Personally, I would never prescribe it for menstrual pain because you are almost certain to become addicted to it. If your pain is so bad that you need Vicodin, you need a 2nd opinion. Its probably safe to take with l-tyrosine and 5-htp. ...Read more
Im taking: acetyl-l-carnitine with alpha lipoic acid 400mg x2 day l-tyrosine 500mg day 5-htp 50-100mg day how do I balance this combo?
Balance what?: I'm not sure what you are trying to balance. You are taking supplements that have no true clinical studies that demonstrate any benefit. The vitamin/supplement industry is based on faith and placebo effect. You are best off eating a healthy diet and exercising to maintain a good "balance". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
