Hi Cathy -

I just googled:  tyrosine + "high blood pressure".

Just about all the headlines say tyrosine is a no-no with hbp (even the sights trying to sell tyrosine).

Go to:  www.biblelife.org/blood.htm

About 1/4 to 1/3 down the page, read "Avoid Harmful Food Additives".

Unfortunately, most pick-me-ups increase both bp and heart rate.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news...

Thank you.  I checked too.   Pity the girl didn't do it before she bought and paid for it - right!!

I will find a dear friend who might need it and one that doesn't have  high bp

Once again thank you for your information.

Great web site - once again thank you.   I definitely will have to give this to someone who can take it.

I got carried away with all the people that were taking it and felt like a million dollars.  
You know how it is with we souls on Thyroid meds who feel so fatigued.

I had no problem with 300 mg of Tyro, then I doubled it in hopes of increasing dopamine. 600 mg was enough to send my BP through the roof. Unfortunately, I had been also doing Isometrics and Chi Kung so I can't blame the Tyro with objective confidence. Non the less, it was a frightful experience and I vowed never to take a double dose of Tyro again.

Found that stretching exercises were the antidote (the polar opposite of long duration Isometrics). Still, had I not been in decent shape (low carb), I wonder how much worse my cardiovascular sys would have fared... Thus, with Tyro (IMHO) a larger dose is NOT necessarily better. I think such a warning on the label would be wise. Lawyers await teeth knashing...
