> I have to add that the effect I have after the first 25mg capsule of Anafranil isn’t the effect I have after several months on 75mg. I think that one pill of Anafranil can improve my ADHD dramatically (I can watch an entire film not being disturbed by my mental associations) but only after several month the anti-OCD effect kicks in.

> Anafranil after several months of use was wonderful from the cognitive point of view: I was a studying machine. I owe to his inventor my PHD-scholarship and all the books I managed to red but I don’t want to live anymore trapped in my house masturbating about the differencies between the first and second edition of the Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason. Above all Kant sucks ;-)

So you would say that, off-meds, you fit which of these categories?

1) inattention alone
2) inattention plus hyperactivity

Then on Anafranil, for the first several weeks, the inattention is replaced by overfocus and a smattering of symptoms from social phobia and oppositional-defiant disorder? But then the overfocus goes away after several weeks, but not the SP/ODD stuff? And you gain weight?

>There a lot of people who say that tyramine’s problem has been a lot exaggerated. What do you think about it ?

I can't say.

> Ok, you have definitively convinced me. I want to try L-tyrosine. Today I will ask for it to the nutritional store. Supposing I manage to get it what dosage you suggest to start with ? How much do you have to wait for the effects ?

Take tyrosine on an empty stomach at least thirty minutes before a meal. I feel it coming in about an hour or so. Yesterday I missed the evening dose and could definately feel the difference. I mentally fatigue easily, *particularly* on mundane tasks strangely enough.

I would go for 1000 mg and see if you notice a difference within an hour or two.

If it helps try out a plan with just tyrosine and see if overfocus/SP/ODD comes back like with the meds. If it does, then start adding 5-HTP.

Never even heard of Acutil. What is it?
