Tyrosine supplementation didn't make me more aggressive, at least I wasn't aware of any changes. However it is clear that tyrosine supplementation can cause increased aggression in some people. Perhaps this is due to tyrosine competing with tryptophan to cross the blood brain barrier. The result of increased tyrosine in the diet can be less tryptophan gets to the brain. Tryptophan is the amino acid precursor to serotonin. Decreased trytophan has been associated with increased aggression.

Mark (or anyone else for that matter), can you tell me why some people with bipolar don't take mood stabilizers. Is it that they don't work for all bipolars or the side effects or what. Does being bipolar mean that your ADs won't work normally unless you are taking mood stabilizers. For example, how common is it that a person with bipolar will have AD poop out or have the AD induced mania becuase they aren' also taking a mood stabilizer.
