Some people taking large amounts of 5-HTP may experience nausea or, less often, headache, sleepiness, muscle pain, or anxiety. 5-HTP should not be taken with antidepressants, weight-control drugs, other serotonin modifying agents, or substances known to cause liver damage. Individuals with liver disease or autoimmune diseases may not be able to adequately regulate 5-HTP or may be more sensitive to the supplement. If you believe that you are experiencing any adverse reactions, please see your healthcare professional immediately. Each individual may react differently to any product or supplement. We always recommend that you consult with your healthcare professional prior to considering the use of 5-HTP Extended Release or any supplement.*
