5-HTP Safety

Does anyone know anything about the safety of 5-HTP? I'm reading conflicting reports.

There seems to be some concern re: high levels of serotonin in the blood and heart problems.

Dave, do you know anything about this?


  • acrylic do you have links to these reports?

    What I've heard is that it should be taken in combination of Tyrosene in a 1:10 ratio (trypto to tyrosene) so that the serotonine increase is balanced by an increase in dopamine. And that the doses should not exceed 300mg and 3g without examining lab results.
