Supplementing with Tyrosine & Citicoline - helping a lot

Recommended Posts

DS 22 had his tonsils out in 2016 and had IVIG in June 2020 (prior IVIGs in 2011). He went off of antibiotics in October 2020 and had a speedy return of many PANDAS symptoms.  I wanted to share with you two things that have helped him the most - 

1.  After reading the Frontiers in Microbiology study of Gut Microbiota in Children Affected by PANDAS (https://bit.ly/39pPmxP), we asked the internist about supplementing with l-tyrosine (https://amzn.to/36k62oH). She agreed that we should try it.

2.  After reading the NIH study on Differential Bindings of Antibodies in PANDAS (https://bit.ly/3lmImnP), we asked the internist about supplementing with citicoline (https://amzn.to/39x2hON).  She agreed to this, as well.

When he takes tyrosine and citicoline daily, he functions at about the 93% level. It was a fast and amazing positive change that seems to be holding nearly a month in.  Hoping this info is of some benefit to others.

That's so good that you are seeing that level of improvement :)

I did just want to mention that anyone who may  also have Tourette Syndrome should be a bit cautious of Tyrosine as, it aids in Dopamine synthesis, and Dopamine seems to markedly increase TS tics....
