L Tyrosine Safe For 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!! ...Read more

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
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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
Is it safe to take 50 mg of 5HTP and 500 mg L tyrosine everyday? Will L Tyrosine Balance out 5 HTP to where 5 HTP doesn't cause serotonin syndrome?
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. ...Read more

Those are not known to be effective treatments of serotonin syndrome.

However, I would say that I'm very skeptical that this will help. Please be careful ...Read more
Is it safe to take a supplement containing 300 mg of l-tyrosine when I'm already treating my graves' disease with levothyroxine and methimazole?
Graves medications: L-tyrosine is an Amino Acid and also a precursor to thyroid hormone, l-thyroxine. It could stimulate further the hyperthyroidism of your graves. Not a good idea. Are you using the levothyroxine and Methimazole as directed by your endocrinologist? That combination is unusual, although not unheard of. One suppresses the thyroid, the other increases thyroid levels. ...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

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.
