I have high blood pressure. It is not well controlled by medications. However, I am under a lot of stress and I believe that is making it worse. Will taking 5-HTP worsen my blood pressure?

Hypertension. Please continue to see your doctor and cooperate. Also see www.relaxationresponse.org for a mind-body way to help. Consider using aged garlic called Kyolic Formula 109. Ask doc about it although he/she is likely not trained in natural medicine. 5 HTP is typically used for mild to moderate depression. How is your diet and exercise level?
