Tyrosine questions

Posted by tresni on May 10, 2001, at 15:40:14

This is my first time posting, and I have really appreciated reading everyone's valuable input and experiences. To avoid the risk
of putting everyone to sleep, I'll try to sum up my situation briefly. I have suffered from mild depression much of my life. (I don't
have the blues, I have the blahs). I self medicated with methamphetamine for 10 years. 6 months ago I quit & decided to seek
professional help instead. I was diagnosed with inattentive type ADD. I was put on (and currently take) Ritalin and Concerta.
They do help. Without them I feel more depressed, disinterested and brain-dead. About a week ago I began taking the amino
acid l-tyrosine (800mg 1 hour before breakfast & lunch) in addition to Concerta & Ritalin. I have already noticed positive
results. I have learned a lot about l-tyrosine so far but still have these unanswered questions:
1. How long does someone have to take l-tyrosine to experience the maximum effectiveness?
2. Is there a limit to how long someone should take l-tyrosine?
3. Does a tolerance develop?
4. What is the most effective daily dosage?
5. Is it O.K. to take l-tyrosine with methylphenidate?
Thank You So Much for any input!!!
