Namaste,

If you take too much 5-HTP, you may develop a dangerous group of symptoms known as serotonin syndrome. This condition may cause hallucinations, difficulty walking, and muscle spasms. Treatment for a 5-HTP overdose will typically involve supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose.

If your daughter displays any of these symptoms, you should seek medical attention immediately. Regardless, however, I would have your daughter seen my a qaulified healthcare provider to determine if there is an underlying cause for her behavior.
