I just started taking L-Tyrosine (500mgs x1 per day) and had a very odd experience. First day felt a sense of euphoria, similar to SSRI for a brief period. 2nd day – zero. Third successive day, horrible headache, anger/aggressiveness and completely exhausted/zoned out. I stopped taking after that and switched over to L-phenylalanine.
I think Tyrosine could probably be fine once a week or every 3rd day, but it completely made me edgy and paranoid 3 days in a row. As an aside, I take ZERO other supplements/medications other than Valarian to sleep at night.
I have taken N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine for years, off and on, as needed. I have not taken it every day. Only when I need a little boost. Sometimes taking amino acids gives me muscle cramps (calf or foot) at night so that is why I don’t take them everyday. I have a noticeable improvement in mood. So when bad things happen, to not stay in a depressed mood, I take NALT to help me have the extra humf to resolve the problem and go on with life. I just recently took it to help me deal with the loss of a relationship. You still have to grieve your losses but it helps me to be able to think about what I need to do and move on in life. I don’t get stuck in a low spot as much.
