will taking l tyrosine and 5 htp together eliminate the chances of serotonin syndrome, dopamine/serotonin deficiency and be safe to use?

Probably not: Hi Those are not known to be effective treatments of serotonin syndrome. Prevention of serotonin syndrome is unstudied in medical literature so it is impossible to say whether taking those supplements will help. However, I would say that I'm very skeptical that this will help. Please be careful
