how much is too much tryptophan???

Hey everybody,

Needing some help here. Have been on various supplements for two years while in withdrawal from Effexor still. My question is when do I know how much is too much tryptophan??? I have been taking 2500 mg for over a year now as prescribed by my homeopath but I don't see her anymore...trying to save $$$. I just don't want to be doing my body and more harm than good right now. And sometimes I wonder if my symptoms are still withdrawal related or taking too much tryptophan??

Also I've read that tryptophan creates niacin and too much niacin could be a bad thing??

I appreciate any helpful comments please.
