hello. I realise I am late on this one ....

Anyhow, Canadian gal here who has been prescribed 1 gram of Tryptan (canadian pharmaceutical version of of L-tryptophan) a day. I do remember reading that for bipolar (which i am) up to 8 grams a day can be taken.

And I have been told to take it with food to prevent stomach upset.

I hope this helps.

> How much of this stuff can I take and still be safe? I want as much of it is possible in me throughout the day, to increase its effects.
> When I first take it, bam! Instant fix. So I thought if I could just pop some in throughout the day just to keep things going smoothly, it'd be great.
> Its found naturally in many types of food, but I'm not sure how much. I don't want to overdose, if it could be hazardous.
> This is odd. Not enough room on the bus, so don't try getting it from food.
> Wait... didn't someone say there was something that should be taken on an empty stomach to prevent competition with other amino acids? Doh! I need to stop taking it with breakfast. Then I'll get more to my brain.
> I'm thinking I can take a bit more and see what happens. I'm reading that link now, and it has some good information.
