I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Lexapro is a SSRI and increases the serotonin level in the body.
Nucynta also increases the risk of serotonin syndrome with lexapro and 5 HTP supplement both.
So you are at increased risk of serotonin syndrome by adding 100 mg daily 5 HTP supplement.
I will advise against it if possible.
Ive been on 5 htp for 9 days. Can I stop without weaning off?thank you
