Has anyone experienced 5htp withdrawal/discontinuation syndrome?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello everyone,

I have been taking pm amino acids for sleep for the last 4 months as recommended by my naturopath while coming off another drug. We have decided that it is time to taper off my pm aminos and let my body regulate its own seretonin levels. etc. I have been taking 2 capsules of PM aminos everynight (200mg of 5htp)

Has anyone experienced any sort of withdrawal while tapering off 5 htp, if so what were your symptoms and how long did they last?

Thank you for your help.

    Hi, I take 5HTP 200 mgs at night to help me, haven't tried stopping but not taken sometimes didn't notice anything bad, but I'm sure it helps me sleep, being on it maybe 2 years or more, might try not taking it and see what happens.
