In reply to how much help from dl-phenylalanine or l-tyrosine?, posted by hok on January 31, 2003, at 14:55:36
I have had a great effect in a short amount of time from DLPA + low dose Deprenyl. See my post here...
Just be sure never to combine any Opiate (Demerol, Vicodin) with the Deprenyl. I put a little card next to my driver's license and I think I'm going to get a ID bracelet too.
You should stop the SSRI for a few weeks before starting Deprenyl or any MAOI. But in my opinion, SSRI's don't do s**t anyway ;) Especially if you're the kind of person that's helped out by a stimulant, which I am.
DLPA has to be taken on an empty stomach. I take 400 mg upon awakening and more later if I feel I need it. Deprenyl (pill form) has to be taken with food, so I take 2.5 - 5 mg with breakfast. I'm still experimenting with the dosage. Some days I feel I need more and some days less but I've taken up to 5 mg with breakfast + 2.5 mg with lunch with no ill effects.
