Stop the caffeine: If the anxiety is caused by caffeine, it is best to stop using it. 5 htp is not a quick onset supplement for anxiety. It has to be taken daily and will gradually build up to a therapeutic level in your body which can take weeks. If you are prone to anxiety, it is best just to stay away from the caffeine. If you are having serious physical symptoms from the caffeine. You should see a doctor.
