When hundreds of thousands of people start taking a supplement that has not had adequate long-term testing, there may be some individuals who have a biochemical abnormality in metabolizing the nutrient that was previously not known.If used at all it is probably best that it be done under medical supervision and only for brief periods and in dosages of 10 to 50 mg depending on weight.Emails I have been giving my 8-year old son 50 mg 5-HTP for the past year.5 HTP was introduced to the over the counter market in 1994 as a FDA approved dietary supplement.We don't know as much as we should about the long term benefits and risks of chronic 5-HTP use.

Other people may have depression, anxiety, and other symptoms that may appear to be due to serotonin deficiency, but may actually be from other causes -- whether an imbalance in brain chemicals, hormones, a high amount of inflammatory substances in the brain and body, abnormal neural connections, etc.

There's really no easy way -- for instance blood studies in a doctor's office -- to tell whether someone is deficient in serotonin, and if they are, whether a 5HTP supplement would help treat their depression or other health problems.
