If l- tyrosine is taken at night can it keep awake or cause insomnia?

If l- tyrosine is taken at night can it keep awake or cause insomnia?

Possibly: I don't believe there is much research on this, but l-tyrosine can be converted to the neurotransmitters Dopamine & norepinephrine which are stimulating. It may also result in lower serotonin levels (important for sleep). I always advise my patients who take it to take it in the morning or early afternoon. If you took it and can't sleep this should pass within a few hours. Try some exercise! ...Read more

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

Will "5-HTP" and "L-Tyrosine" help and improve my medication "vyvanse"? Thank You

Will "5-HTP" and "L-Tyrosine" help and improve my medication "vyvanse"? Thank You

Interesting question: There is no evidence that it would hurt. J Psychiatry Neurosci suggests: L-Tyrosine does not seem to enhance the release of catecholamines when neurons are firing at their basal rates, but it does when firing rates are increased by stress. The main effects of L-tyrosine that have been reported are acute effects in preventing a decline in cognitive function in response to physical stress. ...Read more

Can you tell me how I could convert the amino acid tyrosine to dopamine chemically?

Sure: Just eat some. Your body does it automatically. If you mean OUTSIDE the body - why would you want to? You don't really need to consume tyrosine to make dopamine, though; your body converts some of the phenylalanine you consume into all the tyrosine your body needs. Tyrosine is NOT an essential amino acid. If you consume tyrosine, all your body does is need less phenylalanine. ...Read more

If taking tyrosine helps generate melatonin and darken hair, what medication has the opposite effect?

If taking tyrosine helps generate melatonin and darken hair, what medication has the opposite effect?

Wrong premise: Tyrosine is a Dopamine precursor and it does not go to melatonin in the body.

In balanced dosing with tryptophan and 5 hydroxy tryptophan, the serotonin goes to melatonin.

Unbalanced it can make a patient sicker. ...Read more

I'm on Levothy 100mcg-Liothy 50mcg. In addition, my DR wants me to start taking:Tyrosine 500mg, iThroid 6.25mg, selenium 200mcg, zinc 30mg. Is this ok?

I'm on Levothy 100mcg-Liothy 50mcg. In addition, my DR wants me to start taking:Tyrosine 500mg, iThroid 6.25mg, selenium 200mcg, zinc 30mg. Is this ok?

Weird stuff: I don't know what your doctor is treating, but I can say that these are very unusual treatments. The mineral supplements are probably harmless, although ineffective (and expensive; is your doctor selling them?); the levo/lioth combo is probably making you hyperthyroid, which will hurt you in the long run, and make you addicted to a daily thyroid rush. See a reputable endocrinologist. ...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

Is 5-htp and l-tyrosine the same or different?

Is 5-htp and l-tyrosine the same or different?

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

Can l tyrosine cause prolactin levels to increase?

Can l tyrosine cause prolactin levels to increase?

Should not: If it has any effect at all, tyrosine should decrease prolactin. It is the immediate precursor for dopamine, which is released from the hypothalamus onto the pituitary and, among other things, affects prolacting release; however, the effect of increased Dopamine would be to decrease prolactin. Drugs that block Dopamine receptors (antipsychotics) can cause marked increases in prolactin levels. ...Read more
