Common Questions and Answers about Synthroid and l tyrosine

synthroid

I was taking l-tyrosine and 5-htp for some anxiety issues i have.It was working great but then i found out i'm hypo and have hashimoto's disease.My thyroid levels are back to normal with the right levorothroxine dosage but still feel like crap.Is it possible to start back up on l-tyrosine and 5-htp?I take my thyroid meds at night so i'd figure i could go with the l-tyrosine in the morning time.
I am on synthroid and cytomel. I take some other vitamins 6 to 8 hours later. I would like to take a calcium supplement. I know I have to wait at least 4 hours after the synthroid and cytomel, but does introducing calcium supplementation change thyroid levels. Should I get retested in 6 weeks. I thought I read somewhere that calcium stay in th e blood an could change thyroid levels regardless of when you take it. Also, anyone try Maca or l-tyrosine?
Following is the description by some manufacturers N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine is a more rapidly absorbed and bioavailable form of the amino acid L-tyrosine and is less prone to urinary excretion. L-Tyrosine is converted in the body to key biologic compounds, including epinephrine, dopamine, L-dopa, CoQ10, thyroid hormones and melanin. The B vitamins pyridoxine (B-6) and folic acid are provided to assist in the conversion process.
I'm taking 90mg of Armour and 1500mg of L-Tyrosine. In addition a good age appropriate multi, additional D-3, C and Forskolin.
After weaning off the thyroid meds and supplementing with the Kelp, Selenium and L-Tyrosine, Calcium/Mag/zinc, I feel like a new women again (like myself.) I'd lost who I was for 10 years and settled for that lifestyle because my famous Endocrinologist said my levels were normal and had me taking .150 then recently dropped it down to .137 since the cancer is gone. I have new zest for living, I'm happy, energetic my libido is back, my hair looks great.
I'm also taking Champix to quit smoking, and aside from ordinary vitamins and supplements (which I space at least 4 hours from the synthroid) I'm also taking kelp and L-tyrosine. Any ideas anyone?
I frequent another board where the role of iron in the metabolism of thyroid hormone is discussed. Along with selenium, iodine, L-tyrosine, zinc and other vitamins/minerals/amino acids, iron plays an important role in the conversion of the less inactive T4 form of thyroid hormone to the more bio-active T3 form. I've seen iron discussed a bit on this board but not so much about ferritin . I thought you might be interested in what I found.

Ferritin levels often begin dropping before serum iron levels become critically low or before full-blown anemia becomes apparent.
I too have a shedding problem and take biotin in addition to a multi, Super B complex, and recently I have added magnesium and a Thyroid support containing lots of iodine and L-Tyrosine. This helped a little, but I still don't see anywhere near the results I should for the way I'm working out. Would like to hear how/if the Synthroid helped.
I am taking 112 mg of synthroid and also take L-tyrosine with my synthroid in the morning. Does anyone know if the L-tyrosine still aid with the synthroid even without a thyroid.
I am taking iodine/bovine tissues and supplements of selenium, copper, L-tyrosine, kelp,Irish Moss, Ashwagandha. My plan is to go back to MD and be tested in 30 days. Has anyone gotten their levels down naturally without going on Synthroid?
Hello- I'm 33/female and I've had hypothyroidism since age 26. I'm taking Synthroid and Cytomel and my endo checks my levels every 6 months. I'm usually midly elevated and my dr tried a couple times to lower my dosage but it always resulted in me feeling awful and him reverting to my original dose. The reason why I'm writing here is because I've been feeling extremely depressed lately.
I know before medication there alot of supplements out there you can take to hopefully treat hypothyroidism, but I always forget or get confused what supplements you can take and will benefit from after you are on synthroid L-tyrosine--will benefit or not matter once on medication Evening primrose?? Benefit or not--I heard great for hairloss, but not sure if you can take on synthroid Iodine or kelp?? good or bad once on synthroid Iron?? Good or bad once on synthroid Vitamin A??
Talked to my endo about it but for obvious reasons he said there's no such thing and to get back on Synthroid. I searched the web and found the leading cause of Hypo is Hashimoto's, now, there are natural teas and food to help with that. Just wondering how do I know what's causing my Hypo? Is it somewhere in the test results or what?
currently i take supplements such as the b-complex and l-tyrosine. could l-tyrosine help balance out my TSH levels? are there any other options for me? also, if i do take synthroid, don't i need to continue taking it for the rest of my life? only symptom i'm dealing with now is fatigue, which is really becoming a bother. i really would like to achieve health more naturally and would welcome any suggestions. thank you.
5-HTP; L-Tyrosine; DL-Phenylalanine; Mucuna Pruiens, L-DOPA and SAMe. The 5-HTP is really helping my sleep and mood considerably! When I wake up in the morning now I feel refreshed and not tired and achy all over like I used to when I woke up. I recommend anyone reading this post to do some Internet research on OTC herbs and supplements but please make sure they don't interact with your prescription medications or with other herbs and OTC supplements.
Is there a minimal number of carbohydrates needed to make synthroid do its job? What if TSH #'s are good, taking synthroid & cytomel - but energy at times lacks in am and/or pm, and if one works hard at a gym several days - is it rough on the adrenals? What about supplementing with potassium?
orange brown fluid seeped up from under and top layer of skin came off. I stopped taking the thyroid supplement and took just Vit. A and D and after a week the finger is healing.Can hot water cause bumps under skin? They dont hurt, my finger did itch badly,and I found any place I touched itched.I thought maybe a reaction to thyroid supplement or dose was too high.I followed directions on bottle,two a day.
i hope you've already started on the L-tyrosine, b6, zink, magnesium, and manganese. it really makes a difference when you are trying to kick. gwh: was able to get the old computer to work enough to try to post yesterday... get halfway through a post, only to have the thing take a **** and die on me. i do data comm. for a living and this old computer started feeling as hopeless as work... so that's where i've been. i won't be posting from home much till irish rose gets back with the lap top!
btw, I was having trouble sleeping as well, and tried melatonin, l-theanine, L-5-HTP, all natural remedies, and the VERY BEST thing I've found for sleep is taking a 400 mg Magnesium Citrate caplet right before bed. It works Amazing!! And it will also help with anxiety and headaches as well (I don't have those, but others say it is a charm). I highly recommend.... I have been told it is perfectly safe to take up to around 1000 mg/day, but I just take the 400mg.
You can also add kelp, this is natural iodine and good for the thyroid, whether it be high or low. L-Tyrosine, an amino acid is good for thyroid support too. Why are you are Zocor, this is for high cholesterol.

The low sodium typically means that you are retaining water, not that you need to eat more salt. And eating more salt likely had little to do with the TSH. You are right about having subclinical hypothyroidism. There is no consensus that all patients in your situation need treatment. I usually treat if there are symptoms, high cholesterol, ?heart disease?, or if the TSH is >10.
Vitamin B6, folic acid, and copper are necessary for conversion of L-tyrosine into neurotransmitters . Certain medications may interact with L-tyrosine. long-term use of L-tyrosine should be monitored by a doctor if you take it in pill form. Dairy products, meats, fish, wheat, oats, and most other protein-containing foods contain tyrosine. Glucomannan may help weight loss by occupying space in the stomach, thereby making a person feel full.

Additionally, if anyone has had any experience with any vitamin/herbal supplements that have been beneficial to support thyroid function I would like to know what they are. I know of bladderwrack, l-tyrosine, coleus forskolin, guggul, and a good balance of all vitamins and minerals especially a good balance of zinc/copper, and selennium.
fwiw, I was also recently diagnosed with borderline hypo, and my doc prescribed some meds (first synthroid and then a bio-identical T3), but I haven't filled them. Not because I feel funny about it per se, it's because I believe other issues are causing my thyroid to be sluggish. My doc even said the meds wouldn't improve most of my symptoms, and other specialists have confirmed to stay away from hormonal meds for now.
