Hi tresni,

You might want to consider N-acetyl-L-tyrosine, which is more expensive but more bioavailable. www.sourcenaturals.com has a formula with acetyl-l-tyrosine, B6 and folic acid.

As tyrosine converts to thyroid hormones, I would check for low thyroid. You can use the Barnes method of testing underarm temp upon awakening, I know it works from experience.

For ADD you can try DMAE (cheap and safe). It is a mild stimulant. Takes a week or two to make effect. It is a choline precursor. caution if hypertensive.

If tolerance develope you can try rest periods or inositol (ant remember the URL I read)

Also, dl-phenylalanine is reported to help, I am not sure.

I do not know how all these can interact with your medication.

Good luck
