Hey guys. I have a few questions. I’ve been doing some research(this site rocks by the way) and I decided to give 5-HTP, valerian and chamomile tea a shot. I do suffer from anxiety(I feel like im having a heart attack out of nowhere) and slight depression( I feel emotional once in a while for no reason). My question is, can these be mixed together and are there any side effects. Im currently taking St. Johns wort and I must say it does work, but only temporarily. I was prescribed lexapro(worst drug on earth stay away) and had the most terrible results after only two pills, I was also given Xanax and it was a God send, but because of its addictive nature my doc wouldn’t refill my prescription. So I decided to try the "natural" route. Please Help!!!!!

I have anxiety and i'm really really not into meds
st.johs messes with like 90% of stuff so I wouldn't mix it with anything just incase. 5htp is good with alot of things I took it for a while but I found it ineffective, its quiet mild, there shouldn't be a problem mixing it with chamomile or valerian. so should ask you doc about low dose melatonine

good luck
