In brief: WRONG to selfmedicat

Your knowledge of "5-htp" and "MDMA" is itself worrisome.
It's WRONG to self-medicate. 5-HTP is sometimes taken by MDMA (ecstasy) addicts in a misguided attempt to treat MDMA withdrawal. Side effects include nausea, vomiting, & serotonin syndrome. Promethazine works on the nervous system for these symps, but can make serotonin syndrome & cognitive symps worse. See a psychiatrist STAT. Use HT Prime

In brief: Probably yes

Since 5 http and MDMA are not FDA approved medications, we don't know everything about them. Sometimes you don't even get what you think you're getting when the medicines are not controlled.
Best I can ascertain, you should be able to take promethazine. It is not on the list of meds that interact.
