I find that when I take the Catechol, I become so sleepy and drowsy.  I am very laid-back after taking it, which I like, but I am too sleepy to do much.  Is this because of the tyrosine or the other ingredients, I wonder?  I hope its not the tyrosine, because I ordered some powder to take.  It hasn't come yet!

Anyone else had this happen?

perhaps you are pretty stressed and it soothes you being adaptogenic.......

I've found Tyrosine to make me brighter and more awake.

I don't find that it is stimulating or sedating - it makes me more clear-headed and focused.

I take rhodiola and tyrosine; they help me think clearly and keep me from getting too stressed out.  Rhodiola helps to clear catecholamines--the fight or flight stress hormones that Type Os have difficulty clearing.   I'm not sure if they would clear catecholamines so far that a person becomes tired.  Is is possible that an individual is running on stress hormones, takes rhodiola and it clears them, and then the individual gets tired because they've been running on stress hormones for too long and now with them cleared their body says let's relax or sleep?  I'm not sure, I thought that rhodiola was mainly to keep the stress hormone levels from getting too high.  Also, there's some other ingredients in catechol that I don't know much about.

If I remember correctly, in addition to the tyrosine and rhodiola, Catechol has some ingredients to lower homocysteine, such as TMG, folic acid, B12 maybe some B6 too.

I see.  Maybe I should just take one instead of two and that would be better.  I don't really see myself as stressed at all, and I have no problem relaxing, believe me!  But, I do feel a real let-down when I take the Catechol, almost like I used to feel when nursing my boys.  It was a good feeling, but I just am not very productive after that.  

It almost feels like a bit of a "high" feeling!  Can't say that I don't like it!    But, I ran out of the Catechol now anyway, so am going to just try the Tyrosine powder for a while ...
