For children, we recommend that you consult with a healthcare provider prior to administering 5-HTP capsules or any dietary supplement. Your qualified healthcare provider should be able to determine whether the product is safe and appropriate for a child to take, and should also be able to advise as to whether adjustments need to be made in the dosage of the product.*
