i didnt really have any major benefits, i take prozac at max dose, i've been on it years so body for used to it, but the only thing is if you take long enough it can build up in serotonin levels, then having an overdose of serotonin in the brain. Think of like taking prozac and tramadol together, they build up in serotonin after time. Serotonin syndrome is not fun....flushing, somteimes siezures. But you said you take low dose of effexor, that should not really cause it. But if you take a large dose of 5-HTP yes, say like 200-300mg. But i did notice a little effect but it was not really benefit, it's more to help sleep becauser serotonin is envoolved in sleep cycle, just like melatonin. I'm not advising anything because not a doctor but that's just my view or research i found
