Precaution of use
Taking Griffonia with Plants or Supplements
The effects of simultaneous use of 5-HTP and St. John's wort or other natural antidepressants are not fully known. This combination should only be taken under the supervision of a health professional.
Taking Griffonia with medication
The effects of simultaneous administration of antidepressant drugs of any type (SSRIs, tricyclics or atypical drugs) and 5-HTP may theoretically increase serotonin levels in the brain. An excess of serotonin may result in serotonin syndrome (nausea, agitation, tremors, tachycardia, etc.) or Call-Fleming, a vasoconstriction of the cerebral arteries that causes, among other symptoms, severe headache ("thunderclap" headaches) and neurological disorders. Although no cases have been reported, it is best to take this combination under medical supervision.
The effects of simultaneous administration of 5-HTP and certain analgesics (dextrometorphan, meperidine, pentazocine, tramadol) could theoretically cause serotonin syndrome.
The simultaneous use of Carbidopa and 5-HTP significantly increases the level of 5-HTP in the blood. This combination may also cause scleroderma.
Serotonin antagonists. These drugs (methygerside, cyproheptadine) can inhibit the effects of 5-HTP.

Our expert advice in pharmacy
Serotonin is one of the major brain neurotransmitters. It intervenes in particular for sleep, as a precursor of melatonin, and for the management of stress. With age, serotonin production declines. In addition, the stress that is experienced on a daily basis (following cessation of tobacco or the one encountered as part of a slimming diet) can also reduce the rate, resulting in depressed mood, fatigue, anxiety and insomnia.
L-5-HTP found in Griffonia Simplicifolia is the same amino acid our body produces naturally. Essential to the regular replenishment of serotonin, it reduces anxiety and depressive states. Without the side effects, Griffonia is as effective as anxiolytics and synthetic antidepressants.
L-5-HTP also acts as an appetite suppressant and can facilitate the pursuit of dieting, as serotonin is involved in appetite inhibition for high-calorie, carbohydrate foods.
