L-Tyrosine stimulant holidays for tolerance

You can take stimulant holidays for about a week when you notice you are developing tolerance. Also anything acidic like fruit juice, colas, reduce absorption/increase rate of excretion, so I would avoid drinking anything but water for 6 hours after you take your Adderall.

I haven't tried this yet, but I think I am only going to take my Dextrostat (D-amphetamine) Mon-Friday & skip the weekend doses in order to prevent tolerance. I think this might work well but i've never heard of anyone taking 'every weekend stimulant holidays' or it mentioned in medical literature.

I am going to start taking a small dose of l-tyrosine (either 500 or 750 mg) because amphetamines such as Dexedrine, Dextrostat, Adderall constantly release & deplete your brain's dopamine supply & l-tyrosine may help replenish that supply. I searched through all the literature on l-phenylalanine & although it provides a short lived PEA (your body's endogenous amphetamine) high, phenylalanine actually lowers dopamine & norepinephrine levels, which is a shame because it crosses the blood brain barrier while l-tyrosine does not & can only cross via a specific carrier.

The recommended dose range for l-tyrosine is 500 to 1500 mg but I don't know if the higher dose is good for you despite what the people trying to sell the stuff to you say. Any excess protein or amino acids your body doesn't use are converted into stuff like urea which is bad for your kidneys.
L-tyrosine must be taken on an empty stomach with water & Vitamin B6 & Vitamin C help increase absorption. I found Twinlab makes quality amino acid products. It should be taken 4 hours or more prior to your first dose of amphetamine.
