How to cope with serious withdrawal from 5htp?

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hey guys

i hope all is well.

i am 26 year old guy and have been taking 5htp to overcome awful side effects of blood thinners im taking.

i started last week with 100mg and saw instant improvement in mood and function, however on the fourth say began experiencing numbness and twitching.

after speaking with a GP for advice they said i should not take it the next day which i did and then reduced it to 50mg the next day. as such, i have been getting severe withdrawal and dont know what to do.

should i stick with the 50mg for a few days and is this just a temporary effect from the jump?
