What Should I Avoid When Taking Crave-away?
Although most people do not experience any adverse side effects, please consider the following and do not take Crave-Away if you have or take:
- Phenylketonuria (PKU), as DL-phenylalanine may cause symptoms of PKU to worsen. People with PKU may develop mental retardation, high blood pressure, stroke, and other serious issues if they consume Phenylalanine.

- Levodopa (a medication used to treat Parkinson's Disease) can make symptoms of Parkinson's Disease worsen.
- Medications for depression (MAOIs) as they may interact with Phenylalanine. Phenylalanine can increase a chemical in the body called tyramine. Large amounts of tyramine can cause high blood pressure. Some medications used for depression stop the body from breaking down tyramine, which can cause an increase in tyramine in the body, leading to dangerously high blood pressure.
- Some of these medications used for depression include phenelzine (Nardil), tranylcypromine (Parnate), and others.
- Medications for mental conditions (Antipsychotic drugs) may interact with Phenylalanine. Some medications for mental conditions might increase the risk of jerky muscle movements.
