Can anyone help?
My LLMD wants me to get more sleep. I thought I was, but she feels I need more, so she is suggesting tryptophan.
I looked it up and read a study on using prozac and tryptophan together. The study showed an increase in benefits by using the two together.
I also found an article talking about
the pharma (Lilly) who produced prozac in the 80's. Because tryptophan produced some of the same results, the FDA pulled it from the shelves to help Lilly out. Once Lilly's claim on the product was up the FDA immediately put tryptophan back on the shelves. (Ya just have to chuckle).
Now onto my question: I read that tryptophan and prozac should not be taken together, according to the FDA. I am wondering if this is more of the same from the FDA and should I just not worry about
What do you guys think?
