Can 5HTP be taken safely with SSRI antidepressants?

Best Answer
Why should antidepressants be taken with any Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors? I'd definitely take them instead of SSRI. As numerous studies show, SSRI are known for countless side effects while their scope of impact is slightly higher than a placebo. As 5HTP origin is natural and an immanent element of dopamine metabolism, with as much as non significant side effects, it seems the first choice supplement, that was banished by the pharma mafia in early 80's.
