I was taking 5-htp for anxiety just over a year ago but then I had a stomach ulcer and stopped. It's been over a year since having the ulcer. Could I start taking it again?
Why do you think that the 5-htp caused your ulcer? Ulcers are generally caused by Hpylori (hope that the spelling is correct). I have gastritis, and have to take a protease pump inhibitor, (Previcid), lowest dosage daily, and I take a heaping helping bunch of 5-HTP. Are you sure that is your problem? If it helped you, try it again. If your stomach starts getting upset again, go to the doctor, but I see nothing in that supplement that causes ulcers.
