Breastfeeding and dr: L-tyrosine is an amino acid so that is fine but why not just eat food. PABA is the active ingredient of mothballs and is NOT recommended for human consumption or for moths for that matter. Copper is known as a micro-nutrient and is OK.

How much time does it take L-Tyrosine to begin to have an effect taking it everyday? Does it takes a while like an antidepressant?
Depends: It needs to be absorbed. It needs to be converted by Tyrosine Hydorxylase to L-Dopa.

Unknown: Assuming it has any effect on adhd, which is not established, it could take weeks or months to have any notable effect, since you are trying to build up brain supplies in the right areas high enough to overcome a presumed deficit in Dopamine or norepinephrine.

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.

Its probably safe to take with l-tyrosine and 5-htp. ...Read more
