Hi, judith! 5-htp works by increasing serotonin levels slightly so it shouldn't CAUSE depression/anxiety but, rather, help to RELIEVE them.
Are you taking any other medications?
It would probably be best to talk with your doctor as it may be an underlying problem ~ or if you are taking the 5-htp for depression it certainly isn't working.
Best wishes, WCV
