Thanks for your reply. I am using the 5 HTP myself.
Do not know how much to give of 5 HTP to replace Zoloft and afraid to mess with my son's med's. We had an incident last month. Drug interaction or shall I say one Drug cancelled the other out. (All meds prescribed by same doctor, grrr) As a result he got into some serious trouble because of self control issues. He trying to get thru his last year of High School. After this incident the dr doubled his dosage??? I cut it back by 25mg's because he was doing fine until they mixed the prescriptions with one another.

My son is autistic, he is high functional. His anxiety and depression gets realy worst, when he takes pressure for little things. I usually give him magnesium to calm his anxiety with calcium. Than try to give him cod liver oil. B6 vitamins are excellent too.
I have also tried 5HTP, start with the least dose and see whats good for your son.
