Yes, but not if you're taking an ssri or other med that affects serotonin. Lorazepam works on GABA primarily, whereas 5-HTP is a metabolite of tryptophan that is what the body naturally uses to manufacture serotonin.
I should add, though, that if you need lorazepam the 5-HTP isn't doing what you want it to by itself. Natural remedies are usually used in combination, not singly. For example, in natural medicine the thing to add would be passionflower and hops or kava or something like that, which if they work will do what lorazepam does without the addiction problem. There would also be dietary and exercise and meditation changes involved, a whole body approach as opposed to a one remedy cures all approach.
So to get a good night sleep, I am taking just Kavinace right now along with Adrenotone, and am not sleeping well if at all, I think it is a twilight sleep. No REM for sure
I fall aleep pretty easily at first then wake 3-4 times during the night and either just get up or lie there till morning, not much energy during the day and tire easily. Doc gave me Lorazapam but want to try natural first.
I looked at adding Travacor - would that be overkill? or just take the 5htp with the Kavinace and the Adrenatone?
Just want to add that I added sjw as well as the 5htp and kavinace. I am going to be taking a very long flight shortly and want to take lorazepam to make certain I sleep. How soon before my flight should I stop taking the supplements?
