Discussions that mention dopamine

Addiction & Recovery board

Gina, for several years many folks on different message boards have posted positive results with both. From what I have read through the years there seems to have been more posts on L-Tyrosine. Most posters state its doseage level has to be at 2,000-4,000 mg level to be sufficient to cope w/intensities of WD (Thomas Detox Recipe). [L-Tyrosine can cause headaches in some, in which case the dose level is reduced or stopped and should not be taken by anyone on SSRI antidepressants].

In addition to helping with WDs, both L-Tryptophan and L-Tyrosine (amino acids) help the brain keep alert, increase mental concentration and memory recall, and cope with pain and stress; both aide the body's endorphin factory to produce natural dopamine. L-Tyrosine also helps with depression. L-Tryptophan is also natural appetite suppressant and sometimes used as a weightloss aide. Type either into Google and it will produce link options with more information.

As drug WD coping options, L-Tryptophan and L-Tyrosine appeared on various internet message boards beginning as far back as 2001. Both were part of the infamous Thomas Detox Recipe. If you type Thomas Recipe into Google it will produce link options which will include the Thomas Recipe and various discussions regarding L-Tyrosine.
