My Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) caused high BP symptoms last two days, but BP was 130/90 (not bad.) only thing that changed was the addition of l-tyrosine @ 500 mg. First 5 days were fine. What changed?

My Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) caused high BP symptoms last two days, but BP was 130/90 (not bad.) only thing that changed was the addition of l-tyrosine @ 500 mg. First 5 days were fine. What changed?

Metabolic interactio: 32 yo female using vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) for narcolepsy & depression. I assume you have read the long list of serious potential adverse effects of this drug. If the only thing that changed was the l-tyrosine, then i would advise stopping that. But I am not sure what "high BP symptoms" means if the BP is only 130/90. Pay attention to your pulse/rhythm etc. Talk to your doc if further side effects! ...Read more

My daughters pku came back with elevated tyrosine. A repeat test showed elevated again. We are waiting on plasma & organic urine results. Noone seems alarmed but her father and me. Tyrosinemia is serious to me.  Are there other things that cause elevates

Tyrosinemia: Elevations in tyrosine may be the result of either a temporary process (until the metabolic process matures which takes tyrosine levels into normal range) or more serious metabolic concerns. About 10% babies are born with the temporary metabolic immaturity. No treatment necessary. Depending on the type of tyrosinemia, 1/2000-1/100, 000 are born with it. Treatment is available if babies have this. ...Read more

Is 500 mg of tyrosine dangerous?

Probably not: Remember that all medications and supplements may result in side effects and it is individually dependent. I would recommend taking a new medication at low dosages at first to see if you have any adverse reactions. Tyrosine is not fda studied and is considered a supplement. As a supplement, it is taken from 500mg to 1000mg per day. Supplements may vary by manufacturer so always be careful. ...Read more

Can the body store the extra amount of the tyrosine?

Can the body store the extra amount of the tyrosine?

No: Tyrosine is not stored. The body has a way of making it directly, so it is not an "essential amino acid, " meaning one that you have to get from food. It gets caught up in a number of different systems in the brain and the rest of the body, and what doesn't get used gets metabolized and excreted. ...Read more

Can l-tyrosine help add?

Somewhat: Swedish medical center found some benefit for add with tyrosine, but the benefits lasted only a couple weeks. Also advised using acetyl-l-tyrosine instead of l-tyrosine due to fewer negative side effects & lower dose used. Discuss any supplements with fp before taking them to make sure there are no serious drug interactions with your other meds. ...Read more
