Type O and Prozac


Hi. I am taking 20mg of Prozac, pre- natals,as well as 112mcg synthroid, and breastfeeding my 8 week old son. I just started the type O diet. Can I take the amino acids tyrosine and arginine, along with bladder wrack? (I have battled bulemia for many years~ the prozac is for that). Thank You!!!


The tyrosine and arginine are after all major components of the protein in our diet, so they should not be a problem. The Fucus (bladderwarck), I am less I am less sure about, because it has some mild effects on the thyroid, although its predominant sugar, fucose, is found in highest concentration in human milk over other mammalian species.

The Ask Dr. D'Adamo internet advice column ran from 1996 to 2009, at which time Dr. D'Adamo's teaching and programming responsibilities no longer allowed him to devote time and resources to directly answering visitor questions. However we've recently reorganized this treasure-trove of material and made it again available to his readership. He occasionally posts new entries. These are marked with a NEW tag.
