Hi Guys: I was wondering how many of you with Lyme have low levels of seratonin? My appt yesterday was very disappointing but they did find very low seratonin and I was wondering if that is in any way related to Lyme Disease. Anyone know?? Thanks  D

Yes I have that too. My doc had me purchase 5HTP - 100 mg -twice a day on empty stomach.

Thanks Lisa, did he think the low level  was related to Lyme in some way? They gave me l-tryptophan to  take apparently your body needs that to make seratonin. Were you low just in seratonin? What does 5HTP do and is it a prescription?? Thanks for your help, I do not have an LLMD so I am trying to figure all of this out..  Dowa

Hi Dowa - My LLMD didn't say if this was Lyme related. 5HTP is not a prescription - but I'm not sure how it increases seratonin.
