    I started out taking 500mg L Tyrosine and 500mg L Tryptophan but still had slight symptoms. Because I had read an article that said you need to find a balance,( take just the amount you need )Since my brand only comes in 500mg capsules, nothing smaller, I cut back by taking 500mg every other day.

Doctors put him on 500mg L tyrosine and 500mg L tryptophan a day, taken on a empty stomach,and it changed his life.

Having a bad mood, negative thoughts, being quiet, no excitement, etc...I do a google search and read something about epinephrine which leads me to tyrosine, something my gym-going brother keeps in the kitchen cabinet. I take about 300-500mg only one time and I just felt like my normal self after ... Show Full Comment
