Answer to your Health Question


Good morning!

I have been told I can take L-tyrosine (500 mg twice a day) to lose weight.

I have hypothyroidism and I am under medication but I am unable to lose weight.

My blood works are OK but based on my basal body temperature I am not burning enough calories.

I am 55 years old; my height is 5'6" and my weight 192 pounds.

I have never been so obese. It makes me to feel bad and I am afraid.

My doctor has prescribed me Mirtazapine 30 mg for depression and
Clonazepan 4 drops at night.

Can I take these medications with L-Tyrosine?

Thanks for the answer


Weight gain is a side effect of Mirtazapine.

Depressed mood and weight changes are, among others, important side effects of Clonazepam.

L Tyrosine may help some people in their fight against depression.

Some experts recommend taking L Tyrosine to people with hypothyroidism and some L-Tyrosine manufacturers put a warning in the label for hypothyroidism.
