Hi docs, would the l-tyrosine and other ingredients heal my thyroid?

Hi docs, would the l-tyrosine and other ingredients heal my thyroid?

No: No. Sorry. L-tyrosine, the amino acid the thyroid clans uses to make thyroid hormone, is not in limiting supply. If your thyroid needs "healing", I'm guessing you mean you're hypothyroid. No treatment we have in medicine will heal hypothyroidism. We treat hypothyroidism with thyroid hormone replacement...cheap, easy, & perfect! To your health!

With hypothyroidism, does l-tyrosine raise or lower thyroid levels if your at a stable level? (on synthroid) I want to use it for mood support. Thanks

L-tyrosine: It should not harm you but before you take it please contact your thyroid doctor. Regarding mood - if the doctor says no do not take it. In that case, if you still have mood issues a consult with a psychologist would be helpful.

How long will it take to effects of l-tyrosine?

How long will it take to effects of l-tyrosine?

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. My professional opinion is that it is highly unlikely one would get a marked effect, ever.

Is it safe to take n-acetyl l-tyrosine while on prozac (fluoxetine)?

Is it safe to take n-acetyl l-tyrosine while on prozac (fluoxetine)?

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.

HI, I'm wondering if a natural tan tablets containing copper 4mg, l-tyrosine 400mg, and PABA 400mg are safe to take while breastfeeding?

HI, I'm wondering if a natural tan tablets containing copper 4mg, l-tyrosine 400mg, and PABA 400mg are safe to take while breastfeeding?

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. Why are you taking these dietary supplements?? Just eat a good diet of various fruits and vegeis and you'll get what you'll need!!

2 weeks: Most individuals should not take it for more than 2 weeks for the recommended use to recover from stressful situations and no more than 1, 500 mg per day.
