Can children take 5-HTP

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Is it safe for children to take 5-HTP? If so, how is the dosage different from an adult's dosage? (This would be used to treat anxiety attacks.)

TIA!

There is no medical reason why a child couldn't take 5-HTP. Theanine is supposed to be good too. I would say a good dose would be 50mg of 5-HTP and 100mg of Theanine. Certainly check with your doctor of course.
