    Both are a form of an SSRI, so, I would be careful about taking them together. Here is a little info on the Phenylalanine.



    Phenylalanine is an essentialEssential hypertension

    Essential tremor amino acid (building block for proteins in the body). It is essentialEssential hypertension

It is available in three chemical forms, including L-phenylalanine (the natural form of phenylalanine found in proteins throughout the body), D-phenylalanine (a mirror image of L-phenylalanine that is synthesized in a laboratory), and DL-phenylalanine, a combination of the previous two forms.

    The body converts phenylalanine into tyrosine, another amino acid essentialEssential hypertension

    On the other hand, a rare metabolic disorder called phenylketonuria (PKU) occurs in people who are missing an enzyme that is needed to properly metabolize phenylalanine, causing high levels of phenylalanine in the body. Symptoms of PKU, which tend to appear between 3 and 6 months of age, include eczema, developmental delay, an abnormally small head, and hyperactivity. If it is not treated before 3 weeks of age, PKU can cause severe, irreversible mental retardation. In the United States, newborns are tested for PKU during the first 48 - 72 hours of life.

    People with PKU must eat a phenylalanine-restricted, tyrosine-supplemented diet to have optimum brain development and growth.

    I have taken DL Phenylalanine, for me, it really did not do a thing, but it helps a lot of folks, it is pretty popular.

    call whoever gave you the perscription and ask them. Or some hospitals have a 24 nurse line that will answer questions. Try calling the pharmacy where you got the pills. Read the instructions that come with the pills. Is that enough?

    no. it all depends on the person u should really talk to a doctor before u start mixing drugs, especialy trying to get over an addiction of another drug u shuldnt start taking other meds u will prob just get dependent on them instead.
