I have really bad anxiety when my levels are high. I am extremely sensitive to my PHE levels. The doctor has me on 100g of formula protein based on the theory that the other aminos in the formula block PHE from being used over other aminos. Seems strange but there is this thing called Large Nutural Amino Acid Suplementation that is based on the idea that if you have lots of other aminos other than PHE these will prevent the PHE from being used over the other aminos.
