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!!

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.

I am taking l tyrosine and l glutamine supplement want to know is it safe?

I am taking l tyrosine and l glutamine supplement want to know is it safe?

Forget this garbage.: Unless advised to take extra amino acids by a professional doctor, for a genetic lack of them or for a proven deficiency, save your money & lower risk from chronic use. These are 2 amino acids, present in most protein. The last thing anybody in the US needs is any more protein! If you get adequate protein from food which happens, unless you are starving, extra protein only increases your risk.

Is the supplement l-tyrosine safe to take and have the health benefits reported for this amino acid been experimentally validated?

Is the supplement l-tyrosine safe to take and have the health benefits reported for this amino acid been experimentally validated?

Unknown and no: As is true for most supplements, there are no good studies that demonstrate any true health benefits to l-tyrosine or other amino acids. Since there are no studies, we also do not know anything about their safety. The best thing is to eat a well balanced diet, avoid excess alcohol or other vices, and exercise.

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.

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.
