Can minoxidil topical for hairloss cause palpitations? Can i use 5-htp, valerian and melatonin along with it?(interactions?)

How long does it take 5 htp to get out of your system?

Well...: since it is normally present, it won't get out of the body. The body would make more. Assuming you've actually found some and the label is correct and taken it and it has gotten in in amounts that are noticeably higher than normally present.... it is cleared fairly rapidly like an amino acid and likely not even one day. ...Read more
