> Hey everyone, Im still taking the tryptophan and its working great, except that im experiencing some shaking and sweating. Does anyone know anything about this or if there are any tests to determine the amount of serotonin in your system? thanks!
Stop taking the tryptophan. Those symptoms are serotonergic, at least in character. If stopping the tryptophan causes them to remit over a couple days, you've been taking too much. If you're using tryptophan with a serotonergic antidepressant, you have to be very cautious.
