5 Htp Warnings And Recalls
Is there contraindication or any interactions from taking 5 mg bystolic (nebivolol) (bb) @ 3 pm and 5 mg amlodipine (ccb) at 9 pm every day.
Beta blocker CCB OK: There are no problems if these were prescribed by a physician. Each works differently and the only concern i would have would be potential low blood pressure effect of two medications that work to reduce hypertension. As long as you report to your doctor the resulting BP preferably taken at home at random times, you will help your doctor fine tune the dosing. ...Read more

Interaction Risk Etc: Multiple interactions possible and though the side effects are usually mild they can become severe. Risks include Serotonin Syndrome (see Wikipedia), fluid accumulation, and even seizures. Your combination of activating, antidepressant, and sedating/tranquilizing meds is worth a close review. For e.g. clonazepam 3 mg daily is quite high in combo with the others. In psychotherapy too hopefully? ...Read more

Lexapro or other ssri's are often combined with wellbutrin (bupropion) to help people who have combination of atypical depressive symptoms ; typical depressive sxs or anxiety disorders. This is usually a well tolerated combination. I would not recommend coming off of this type of medication without discussing with the provider. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
Like all therapeutic agents 5-HTP can have a variety of side effects including nausea, fatigue, dizziness, diarrhea, low blood pressure etc. Such side effects are more likely to occur if you don't need it.
It can help anxiety and may boost effectiveness of Prozac but should be used with caution in those on anti-depressants as it could raise serotonin too much. See

Not recommended: This is an intermediate substance in the conversion of tryptophan to serotonin and melatonin. Studies have been inconclusive regarding safety and efficacy, and may serotonin-increasing meds are already widely used, such as prozac, paxil, (paroxetine) zoloft, etc, and these drugs have an enormous amount of usage success. See your doctor for further evaluation of mood disturbance. ...Read more
I have been taking Effexore XR 75 for about ten years now and I am going through a difficult time in my life now; have no drive. Can I take 5 HTP too?
Need professional Rx: 5HTP has side effects, some of which are serious. If you are not scurrectly seeing a mental health professional, you need a referral to see one. Whether cognitive therapy or new medicines or a combination is needed, management needs to be directed by a physician experienced in the area ...Read more
Probably safe but...: There's no research on this but it's probably safe to take these together, in fact I'd expect a synergistic benefit. SAMe appears to increase serotonin levels; 5-HTP does that too so theoretically one might raise serotonin too much, but this is unlikely unless very high doses are taken. I would not start both together but take one for at least 3 weeks, then add the other, starting with low doses. ...Read more

I was recently taking 5-HTP, 50mg, 2x a day for about 2 weeks. I stopped 3 days ago and wonder if it would be ok to start again on SSRI this weekend?
Unknown: There has never been a case of serotonergic syndrome in humans reported with combined use. Mice are not so lucky Unfortunately a formal study has not been undertaken in humans. I'd wait another week just to be on the safe side. ...Read more
Depression: This is a precursor to serotonin. Taking 5-htp is a way to try to raise serotonin levels in the brain. Medicines like Prozac and zoloft (sertraline) attempt to do the same thing by stopping the body from breaking down the serotonin that's already there. The medicines work by a "less out" method. 5-htp works by a "more in" method. More scientific evidence is needed to determine how well it works. ...Read more
