Hey Steve - As of this moment - no blood, no mucus whatsoever, no pain, solid stool, once per day... perfectly normal.... plus I gained ummm 5 lbs over the last week, which is pretty unheard of for me.
Had a turkey sandwhich and chocoalte milk last night to experiment again, and toast with my eggs this morning. Zero effect so far.
As far as what to take: I'd suggest just picking up the phone and calling Dr. Stein. I highly doubt you'll be able to tease it out on your own. But you never know. Remember though and I can't stress this enough, one dose for me things were semi-good, the next dose things went waaaaaaaaaaaay bad and the next, wham, perfect.
So I'd say your risking a lot and a potential BIG flare that you may not get out of if you don't do it through the doctor. When things went bad you have no idea how close I was to calling the doc and literally begging for a huge dose of Pred... It got that bad as time went on.
As far as tyrosine - I'm at 6000mg daily split between two doses.
Soooo... I would say why not just jump in a give it a shot the proper way. Really I can't see anything to loose at this point - and potentially everything to gain.
My concern is people will mess around on their own with 5HTP and the others etc and perhaps end up in a giant flare... with nowhere to turn to.
Maybe give it some thought before you jump in and start trying tyrosine... then again I can't help but admit I'm curious as to what would happen! haha... Still though, seems like to BIG of a risk to me.
