Ok so a month ago, I discovered 5-HTP and had tremendous success with it. I got off of it within 2 weeks bc I was getting serotonin syndrome. I felt fine off of it. Then, my PMS started and I was cranky but able to deal. After about 3-4 days into my actual period, I started to get anxiety and depression. I'm on the 6th day of my period. I took 5-HTP last night and it worked great. I took it today, did nothing for me. I just bought Tryptophan, Tyrosine, and St. Johns Wort. I have an appt. with my ND on the 25th and she has my saliva test results. I know my hormones aren't stable, that my thyroid is a bit low, and that I most likely have adrenal exhaustion.
I thought I was halfway cured with the 5-HTP, I felt the best I'd ever felt on it. Now I'm totally depressed, no appetite(this is bad bc I'm very underweight) and just sick of this.
Encouragement and thoughts are welcome.
