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.......
Thanks sweet pea.. I SHOULD probably cut out the coffee in the morning too... ya THINK!?!!?!??
You mentioned that post withdrawl period x's a few months... ????? soooo seeing as I'm only day 33 hear in NORCO FREE LAND... do ya think I should continue to take take the L-Tyrosine or not?
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.
