hi. 5htp and saint john's wort, sam-e, amino acids, etc. can be very potent and have adverse effects in some people.

Personally...I do old school Orthomolecular. Its massive doses c, b3, b-100 complex, etc. etc. etc. I have Bipolar I and it makes the meds more tolerable and I get more mileage out of the meds.

Now..thing about that is...I do well with the vitamins (old school Orthomolecular is all about the vitamins, lol), but I didn't do so well on herbs (kava kava, valerian, saint john's wort) or 5htp. I did take taurine for a while, and that was OK...kinda sedating...but I did it with the mega dosed vitamins, so I think probably prevented any major adverse effects.

I dunno. I'm no kinda expert...I just kinda pieced together my own massive dose Orthomolecular program based on Hoffer's writings...but maybe try to focus more on vitamins, which your body is designed to work with, rather than herbs and amino acids?

Also...again, not an expert, but...the orthomoelcular people say that if you mega dose one vitamin, you should consider ramping up doses of the other. This is definitely true of B-complex vitamins (according to the orthomolecular people, anyway), and I seem to recall reading that its true of some other substances too, such as the various carotenoids.

This is all I can come up with. Good luck!
