Only thing that has helped me with withdrawal symptoms from marijuana (sleeplessness, anxiety,cravings)
Good thing to know. I was also researching various things that could help ease a person off of MJ, alcohol, etc.
Wow. Alcohol to withdraw from m.j. Your research must be superb. Idiot.
I don’t believe the individual was suggesting the use of alcohol for marijuana withdrawal. I believe they were stating that they were researching ways to ease withdrawal from marijuana AND alcohol AND etc. Correct me if I’m wrong, Kush.
Can I take l-tyrosine with green tea and coconut oils. Kathy
Yes you can. I do, feel great.
Does anyone know if it’s ok to take 5-htp and L-tyrosine at the the same time? I take 5-htp in the evening before bed to help with low mood and have just bought some L-tyrosine which I plan to take in the morning to help me through a stressful work situation. I’m not planning to take these two long term, just for stressful situations. If it’s not advised to take both, I won’t. If anyone can help that would be great.
Yes it’s safe to use these together and it is often recommended to stack 5-HTP with a catecholamine precursor like l-Tyrosine when used over long durations. We have an article on this stack at https://nootriment.com/tyrosine-5-htp/
Both of these supplements destroy (literally) libido. So if you want double destruction of your libido, take them both
Your libido will only be destroyed when overdosing 5-htp (serotonins pre-cursor). I’ve tried and tested this.
My newly married daughter is struggling with her husband having a seemingly low libido. Would this supplement help with that? I have been reading about low dopamine levels as a contributing factor- Also, his testosterone is at a normal level so it’s not that– Thanks
You might look into L-Carnatine. It gives a boost in the gym and the bedroom. Plus the name sounds like a flesh eating dinosaur.
I take 500mg of tyrosine daily, usually in between meals to give it better access to the brain, works great for reducing anxiety and getting out of a “stuck” mood.
I love to take l-tyrosine but today I took some and i got diarrhea is this normal?
Here is the information provided by the Natural Medicines database: “According to secondary sources, in high doses, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, or nervousness have been reported.” It may be recommended to reduce your dosage to prevent diarrhea. Gastrointestinal side effects like diarrhea may also be caused by other additives in the supplement. Do you know what fillers or additives are present in the supplement you are taking?
Can I take L tyrosine 400 mg with 7- keto dhea 50 or 100 mg?
Hi, I have hypertension and am currently taking coversyl hd ( hydrochlorothiazide and perindopril) are you aware of any interactions between this and L-tyrosine?
l-thyrosine increases blood pressure
I was told not to have any protein with L-Tyrosine. How long after I take it, may I have – as example – an Odwalla Protein shake? Taking it to offset the backing off of pain meds from back surgery.
That’s a bit silly since it’s one of the main amino acids in Hemp Protein Powder. I think you need to do your own research.
@Piper – This is not silly, as zlataray has stated. Yes, when using specific amino acids for therapeutic reasons, it is generally advised to take them alone as amino acids are known to “compete” for transport to the brain. When digesting a complete protein containing all 21 amino acids – you are introducing many other competing amino acids and therefore diluting the one that you may be looking to supplement. It is generally suggested to wait about 2 hours after a meal to supplement.
Taking it together with other amino acids found in protein may diminish its uptake due to the competition between amino acids. Best taken an hour or so before protein.
I am taking Parnate along with Xanax for several years. Yesterday, I went to my nutritionist and told her that I was trying to eliminate Xanax. She prescribed L-Tyrosine to take instead. I am leery for some reason. Is it safe to take L-tyrosine with Parnate?
I just saw your post, I hope that you get this… I took xanax for years also. Most doctors do not know how to properly taper this drug; there lack of knowledge can be devastating and dangerous. Be very careful and learn as much as you can. Go to a site like benzobuddies dot com get prepared for what this entails.
Cold turkeying xanax is a recipe for disaster, tyrosine will do little good at all.
You can PM me from there and I will help you if you’d like… My screen name is Buhbyebenzos …
Best of luck,
Hi Brad, I’m trying to taper off Xanax and was also prescribed L-Tyrosine. I am on Benzo Buddies but can’t find your screen name there to PM you. My screen name is Faith2020. Can you PM me? Thank you, Lisa
Can I take l-tyrosine to replace xanex
Thanks for your question! Under FDA guidelines, dietary supplements like L-Tyrosine cannot be promoted as alternatives to prescription medications like Xanax. You should consult with the doctor who prescribed you with Xanax if you are interested in finding out about alternatives.
hey. am not sure that can apply to you but here is what happened to me. i quit xana , fluxtine 2 month ago, yeah its unpleasent. till i found 5-htp this stuff works miracle to my depression , anexity , couldnt feel l-tyrosine many doctors told me it takes like 3 -4 weeks to notice effects ,
if you suffering from depression like me. this one amazed me in very short time and couldnt feel the horrific withdrawal symptoms i read everywhere.
it contains the followings.
.Vitamine B complex [specially b6,b12] the daily value not the regular suplements.
.5-htp 200mg .
wishing you fast and healthy recovery.
Thanks for your feedback. If you happen to have recommendations on which brands of products you used, that would be much appreciated to hear about!
Hi, ive never taken this stuff before and i read the instructions wrong and measured wrong! I ended up taking 5000mg at once.. im scared. Im only small and 46kg female. How long until it leaves my system? Is there anything i can do? Thanks !
Thanks for writing in. If you are experiencing ANY side effects, it is recommended to seek out medical attention. However, there have been research studies in which dosages of up to 10 g of L-Tyrosine have been administered in a single serving without a significant risk of side effects.
Hii!! Do you know if its ok to take L-Tirosyne along with p5p(vitamin b6)
Thanks for your question! L-Tyrosine and P5P are often used together and they may have a synergistic benefit. It’s always best to consult with a doctor before you start taking any new supplement, but there are no known side effects linked to combining L-Tyrosine and P5P.
I am currently taking 5-htp, L-theanine, Taurine, and Orinthine for insomnia purposes. The combo has helped me fall asleep but waking in the middle of the night is still an issue. I am debating adding tyrosine and glutamine to the mix but am concerned that all the different supplements might start to overwhelm my body or take over each other.
Thoughts on what supplements are safe to take together and how to find the right mixture for me are greatly appreciated!
All of the supplements you mentioned are forms of amino acids, which are generally well tolerated when stacked together. In terms of finding the best combination to address your specific health goals, it would be wise to consult with a doctor or Naturopath on what works best.
Glutamine is purported to improve sleep quality, but taking tyrosine late in the day can make it harder to fall asleep for some people.
Melatonin is well-established to improve sleep quality. I hope that information helps! Let me know if you have any further questions based on this.
