I’ve had anxiety for almost 20 years and my symptoms match with low serotonin – constipation, lack of focus, constant worry, fatigue, etc.I started taking 5htp last week and already feel improved – mainly the constipation has improved, which has given me a much-needed energy boost. But the anxiety hasn’t quite gone away, especially at work.My GP prescribed 10 mg Prozac, but I’m anxious (of course) about starting it. I’m reading that 5htp isn’t sustainable, but it\’s been working so I’m afraid to abandon my current life raft. Should I make the leap?
