l-Tyrosine

Has anybody out there in Drug addiction Recovery Land found that L-Tyrosine makes them hyper?

Just wondering as I am at 33 days CLEAN off of an 8-10 Norco habit a day x's 3 years and wanted to know if L-Tyrosine has any effect on there (hyper) mood  ANXIETY LEVEL.????  I most definately am cutting that OUT of my Vitamin cycle tomorrow as I REALLY think it makes me MORE ANXIOUS & NERVOUS  (like I'm not anxious & Nervous enough)  

I know that IBKleen said to "cut out the L-Tyrosine" but I was just curious as to any one else out there that has had a similar hyper... coffee jitters... effect with this...I heard that L-Tyrosine helps with re-establishing your Neuro-transmitters... but I'm thinking that after 33 days I don't need this any more...

Any input or ideas is appreciated...

I had different personal responses at different times to it.......during the post withdrawal period for a few months it was a huge help.......  then I noticed gradually increasing anxiety levels..........  then it got totally out of hand and there was full blown anxiety involved.  Then I stopped the extra L-Tyrosine and coffee and things leveled out a lot.......

Get the book End Your Addiction Now, by Charles Gant.  Chapter 4 has a handful of questionnaires that will help you determine exactly which amino acids you need to atain/restore the neurotransmitter levels necessary for a healthy, happy, "normal" life.

L-Tyro is GREAT if it happens to be what you need, but there's no such thing as a one-size fits-all amino.  Even if L-T is needed, it would be needed in combination with other aminos, not alone.  

The proper combination of aminos and vitimans can make a HUGE difference in healing/reversing the affects of addiction on the brain.
