Re: L-Tyrosine supplement for ADD?
I know there are studies proving the efficacy of zinc with stimulants and the lack of efficacy alone. Anecdotally, I experience that with L-Tyrosine. But let's do a little extrapolating. Both L-Tyrosine and Zinc must have some ADHD symptom relief properties, otherwise, why would they assist the stimulants? My conclusion, based on rather scant evidence, is if your ADHD is mild and the damands on your concentration are light, they just might work alone.
I am able to do most everything without meds except my job. Change jobs? And do what? I'm 53 years old. It took me megahours to master my craft of computer programming. I can dig ditches, just dug one on my property, but it doesn't pay enough. But it does demonstrate that demands on our ability to concentrate can make a difference between whether meds or needed or not.
