Does l-tyrosine help in any way if you go off adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)?

Does l-tyrosine help in any way if you go off adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)?

For Some People: Tyrosine is helpful for some people as far as improving focus and attention. However, it is likley to be a more gradual, subtle benefit, so you should not expect to see the kind of rapid benefit that we often see with adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). Also, for some people tyrosine will simply not be helpful enough.

Is it safe to take n-acetyl tyrosine with Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) to help with meds instead of increasing the dosage?

Is it safe to take n-acetyl tyrosine with Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) to help with meds instead of increasing the dosage?

Not really: Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is a fda approved prescription medication that is tightly controlled is a stimulant. And nam is a dietary supplement that has is not sufficiently regulated. Both are stimulatory and I really could not recommend taking them both together.

Are tyrosine supp. Helpful to replenish dopamine after Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) use on days I don't eat enough protein (dietary sources of tyrosine/phenylalanine)?

Are tyrosine supp. Helpful to replenish dopamine after Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) use on days I don't eat enough protein (dietary sources of tyrosine/phenylalanine)?

No.: Trouble with protein supps is we are hoping the body converts them the way we need them to be. Also very few things cross the blood-brain barrier when doping is created so it is doubtful that that tyrosine supps will either.

Sounds like your: Mind is racing like a machine gun through all these stimulating supplements that will not relax you, until you understand what is important with ADHD. What activity eases your mind? Meditation? Walking? Contemplation? Do more of these things, rather than ingest more supplements initially. See if these alone can help your mind from racing through thoughts. Then, when you add one thing at a time.

What foods are highest in tyrosine?

What foods are highest in tyrosine?

Precursor for neuro: Tyrosine is an Amino Acid precursor of two neurotransmitters, norepinephrine and dopamine. Some patients take it to increase their energy, alertness, and improve their mood. However, it can raise blood pressure. It is found in dairy, soy, meats, fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans, and grains. I believe it is highest in seaweed and soy protein.

Can you od on l. Tyrosine?

Can you od on l. Tyrosine?

Yes but rare: L- tyrosine is an amino acid (building blocks of protein), that is not considered essential because the body can make it from other Amino Acids like phenylalanine. It is part of the production chain of many neurotransmiter (substances that transmit the message from nerve cell) and also important in the production of melanin which gives us our. Od rarely reported but should not be taken in large am.

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.

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.

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

Different: These are Amino Acids that the body uises in ver specific ways. Unbalanced use of these Amino Acid have the ability to do far more harm than good. They really should only be managed by physicians who are fully aware of how to use them properly.

Sometime tics can be precipitated and those can also go away once medication is started. Occasionally they can be long term if medication is continued.
