Interesting. If I have ever had Phenylketonuria, I have never been made aware of it. Using a Tyrosine supplement for me has been at least as effective as using Adderall.

My son kinda blew out on his adderall, his current regimen was making him very tired and very straight-line, so until he could get back to the doctor for another med check, I tried him on the L-tyrosine, and I can tell a noticeable difference in his mood. He's such a terrible self-reporter though, he can't tell me how it is focus-wise. He actually had a sense of humor yesterday, and I missed that very much it was sooo nice to see him back.

PKU testing is now routinely done on infants soon after birth in the US. :=)

Interestingly enough, I find taking L-Tyrosine has had the most effect on my OCD tendencies. In combination with GABA and 5 HTP, I'm off all other scrips. :)
