    I read an article written by Jim Carey, the comedian, that was in a magazine in a herb shop about how he was tortured by depression. Doctors put him on 500mg L tyrosine and 500mg L tryptophan a day, taken on a empty stomach,and it changed his life. It saved my life from excessive grieving, feeling afraid,being uncomfortable with existence, not being able to get started doing anything, including br ... Show Full Comment

    For the past 6-8 months I have been getting bouts of minor depression that were seemingly spontaneous. 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

    Comment:
    My husband has been suffering with depression, mood swings, social anxiety, ADHD, irritability, weight gain, etc. for the past 8 years. At first we thought it was hypothyroidism, but his levels didn't register high enough on his blood chem test to alarm the doctor enough to give him an Rx (even though he has the tell-tale sign of thinned eyebrows). Recently, we came across an article about the ... Show Full Comment

    Hating that gut-awful feeling as soon as I wake in the morning (depression) I decided to do something about it. My daughter is a nurse at a retirement home for the disabled and she told me doctors were giving this to patients who had problems with depression in lieu of drugs. Ha! It works! I still have some depression but not as bad as it was. I take one each morning and it lasts all day.

    I took 1000 mg Tyrosine daily for several months. I gradually developed significant pain in my elbows and knees. I had less discomfort in my ankles and big toe joints. When I stopped Tyrosine, the discomfort decreased. After about a week off Tyrosine, I have far less discomfort. This, of course, is anecdotal; however I am convinced there was a relationship. (It was beneficial regarding depres ... Show Full Comment
