Re: Diminishing tryptophan hydroxylase

Okay so looks like Fenclonine would do exactly that. I know someone here has had to have tried it by now. Unfortunately, this doesn’t necessarily mean it wouldn’t work because the way in which it is tried, for how long, etc. are also factors that we are just shooting in the dark on. Man, this is SUC...

Diminishing tryptophan hydroxylase

Tryptophan hydroxylase is the enzyme which catalyzes conversion of tryptophan to 5htp. Are there any ways to block this enzyme from functioning properly and potentially deplete serotonin without depleting other neurotransmitters? Has anything like this been tried?

Re: Are there recovery stories after several years?

Imagine how many people return to their doctor with these symptoms, are consistently told it’s depression/anxiety and simply try other antidepressants. I imagin...
