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

Depends on dose/use: If you are taking Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) to treat adhd, are getting good benefit from it at appropriate dosages, and do not need to keep raising the dose because your losing a "kick" or some other benefit from it, then you are highly unlikely to be addicted however long you take the medication.

I'm on levothy-100mcg and liothy-50mcg. In addition, my DR wants me to take tyrosine 500mg, ithyroid 6.25mg, selenium 200mcg, and zinc 30mg. Is this ok?

It's totally absurd: Hi. Sorry to insult your quack, but taking tyrosine and elemental iodine makes ZERO sense for someone with hypothyroidism. It makes me question the diagnosis in the first place. The l-thyroxine and T3 (liothyronine) doses you're on would make many people HYPERthyroid (that's a high T3 (liothyronine) dose I only used to use temporarily in stages of thyroid cancer treatment...WITHOUT l-thyroxine). Please see an 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.

As a supplement, it is taken from 500mg to 1000mg per day. Supplements may vary by manufacturer so always be careful. ...Read more
