Can L Tyrosine Be Used With Prozac
Avoid: Not sure about how well n-acetyl-l-tyrosine is absorbed and metablized in the body. However, the base component, tyrosine is an Amino Acid that is in the precursor pathway for Dopamine production. Dopamine is an important neurotransmitter in certain parts of the brain. Prozac (fluoxetine) and ssris have been shown to impact Dopamine levels. So, I am not sure what effect they would have in combination. ...Read more
Fluoxetine (brand prozac) is an antidepressant in the class known as serotonin selective reuptake inhibitors aka ssris. Fda approved in 1987 for the treatment of major depressive disorder. Subsequently approved for obsessive compulsive disorder, bulimia nervosa, panic disorder, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder. Significantly safer and much better ...Read more
Is it safe to take l-tyrosine and Prozac (fluoxetine) at the same time? If yes, what should be the maximum dosage of both?
Tyrosine can interact with a class of antidepressants known as maois. Prozac (fluoxetine) is in a different class of antidepressants, known as ssris, which are not known to interact with tyrosine.

Are there any dangers in taking l-tyrosine supplements or acetyl-l-tyrosine supplements along with Prozac (fluoxetine) 40mg daily?
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. ...Read more
Not optimal: It is not a standard treatment and falls in the category of alternative medicine, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but not necessarily a good thing either. It can increase anxiety. If your depression is severe enough to affect your functioning (work, relationships. Etc.) or cause significant distress, see a mental health professional for an assessment and develop a meaningful treatment plan. ...Read more
May a product containing l-tyrosine, zinc and b-6 be used in combination with one another containing magnesium as an additional ingredient?
Yes but rare: L- tyrosine is an amino acid (building blocks of protein), that is not considered essential because the body can make it from other Amino Acids like phenylalanine. It is part of the production chain of many neurotransmiter (substances that transmit the message from nerve cell) and also important in the production of melanin which gives us our. Od rarely reported but should not be taken in large am. ...Read more
Yes, if deficient: Our bodies produce thyroid hormone by combining tyrosine with iodine. Thus, if one is deficient in tyrosine it might cause hypothyroidism. Our body synthesizes tyrosine from phenylalanine, so that deficiency (which is not unusual) can also cause hypothyroidism. If low in tyrosine then supplementing should help: http://ezinearticles.

Just started taking l-tyrosine 500mg every three days. Is it effective in fighting against depression?
Probably not: Tyrosine is a naturally occuring Amino Acid and a precursor for several brain chemicals including dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine. However, pushing the dose of tyrosine mostly affects the body, not the brain, and no convincing studies suggest it has a major benefit for depression. ...Read more
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. If you have iron deficiency the enzyme Tyrosine Hydroxylase may not work (iron is a co-factor for this enzyme) This is how Iron deficiency leads to Restless Leg Syndrome (Its called Ekbom Syndrome if due to iron deficiency) Another couple of enzymes have to come into play to produce nor-epinephrine and / or 5HT. ...Read more

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
