Yes, definitely complicated and I agree that in your case it's probably best to put this trial off a little while. I'll e-mail joe@dancesafe and see what he has to say. I'll post the response here.

> Note my other post where I found a posting at that DanceSafe site (and it was also from "Joe" as I recall) that specifically refers to DLPA combination making anxiety worse! So which is it? My response - just in taking it a couple days - was that there was some increase in anxiety for sure. Would it have gone away after a few days, well, don't know. With Xanax and Neurontin controlling the anxiety - and not having that much depression - not sure that messing with the DLPA combo right now is the best thing for me right now.....

> But mainly I don't see a definitive answer with this question... does it cause more anxiety or lessen it? Also, I have found that there's a more active form of depression (similar to psychotic depression) that can very easily be confused with anxiety. So maybe people with an anxious form of depression benefitted from DLPA combo while thinking it was helping with an anxiety problem?????

I did some more research on this and found examples of both cases. In the information that said it could be good for anxiety, they also cautioned that it's not to be used by those with panic attacks. Maybe that's because it is initially stimulating and could worsen panic disorder - but that after it's taken a while, it can help with anxiety, as is often the case with SSRIs. I was also surprised to see warnings about not taking DLPA if you're already on an antidepressant. That would make sense if the antidepressants are noradrenergic or dopaminergic - but why couldn't you take it with an SSRI?

Do not eat anything for 45-60 minutes after taking. DLPA works by naturally increasing levels of the neurotransmitters dopamine and phenethylamine and by blocking the breakdown of endorphins and enkaphalins (endogenous opiate-like substances). DLPA is the most potent anti-depressant and anxiolytic (anxiety reducer/reliever) I have ever encoutered. There are virtually no negative side effects, the side effects that there are tend to be positive such as increased sex-drive, decreased appetite and mild weight loss. Try it for 30 days. If it doesn't work then it doesn't work (it will work), but what do you have to lose? I cannot emphasize enough how potent this little amino acid is, it literally changed my life. If I had the resources to give this stuff away for free I would. TRY IT! I will personally slap anyone who says anything negative about DLPA or that it lacks "FDA approval". The FDA has no power to regulate amino-acids, which is what DLPA is. Anyone with any negative comments can go to hell, because all you're doing is discouraging people from trying this incredible substance. If you haven't tried it, keep your Goddamn mouth shut about "it doesn't work" or "if it works it would be prescribed". Anyone who wants more information can email me (joe@dancesafe.org)"
