Dr. Ward Dean answered:

Is 5-htp and l-tyrosine the same or different?

Different

Adrenaline
5HTP is a precursor of Serotonin, an inhibitory neurotransmitter. L-tyrosine is a precursor of the dopaminergic neurotransmitters epinephrine and norepinephrine, which are stimulatory neurotransmitters. Although both 5HTP and L-tyrosine may act as anti-depressants, they act in completely different ways. 5HTP is best taken at bedtime; L-tyrosine should be taken in the AM or during the day.

Dr. Umesh Patel answered:

I fainted twice during 2 min for a few sec. I take 5-htp and L-Tyrosine. Could these be cause of fainting? I have MVP and Discircul. Encephalopathy.

Dysautonomia - MVP

Open-uri20140129-32560-7e6oik
If your doctors have not found any cause of the symptoms, you may have dysautonomia which is associated with mitral valve prolapse syndrome - neither are usually life threatening but both cause patients anxiety about their symptoms. Perhaps a cardiologist can help you. Read Dr. Richard Hoffman's book on MVP on Amazon.com. Increase fluid and salt intake, try magnesium supplements.
