Some new questions re: DLPA and L-tyrosine

If you folks are still out there in cyberspace please consider this question:

( 1 ) how much of Vitamins B6 and C should I ingest with my morning dose of L-Phenylalanine?

( 2 )So far, I have been taking the L-Phenylalanine on an empty stomach along with Dexedrine
and Effexor. Am I right in assuming that taking this amino along with an amphetamine and an SSNRI is a safe plan?

( 3 ) I used DLPA for about a month to augment the treatment of my ADHD. At first I found it produced a nice calming affect. Eventually this petered out.

Upon consulting the "all-in-one-guide to natural remedies and supplements (a reference which I recommend) I learnt that this is a predictable effect for DLPA - if one has used it for a period longer than one month. Has anyone else experience this effect? If so, have you found a way to overcome the tolerance issues and resume using it?

( 4 ) I used the L-tyrosine in conjunction with the DLPA for a week. (Again, to augment the treatment of ADHD). During that time I experienced a sharp rise in my anxiety level and a breakthrough of hyperactivity (I say a breakthrough because, owing to my use of Dexedrine it had vanished).

The appearance of anxiety symptoms was not altogether unanticipated because I have a diagnosed case of OCD and a probable case of Generalized Anxiety disorder ( both of which I treat with 37mg of Effexor, taken 4X daily). Still it was disappointing as I had very much wanted to find some (any!) alternative to dexedrine.

Can you folks guesstimate why the L-tyrosine bothered me and how to possibly avoid that effect in the future?

BTW, As far as online suppliers of aminos go I recommended checking out Swanson s (a supplier of natural supplemented based in NJ). They often have excellent discounts on offer.
Those of you who, like me, live in Canada, may be happy to hear that they ship to this country.

Many thanks,
