Suggested use: Take1-2 tablets before breakfast, dinner and bedtime on an empty stomach or as directed by a health care practitioner. Keep out of reach of children.
Note: If you are taking MAO inhibitors, SSRIs (Prozac, Luvox, Paxil, Effexor, Zoloft) and/or the tricyclic antidepressants (Elavil, Tofranil, Pamelor) or St. John's wort, do not take 5-HTP without discussing it with your health care provider. 5-HTP can be used to wean off antidepressants. Discuss any medication changes with your health care provider.
If you wish to wean off your antidepressant medication using SMILE, advise your doctor that you want a prescription for progressively lower doses of your antidepressant medication. Let your doctor know you are going to use SMILE 5-HTP as a replacement. You can start weaning off your medication over a 4 week period. During week one, take 100 mg of SMILE in the morning and at bedtime. In week two, lower your dose of antidepressant medication and take 100 mg of SMILE at morning, dinner and bedtime. Then in week three, your dosage of antidepressant medication should be lowered again and you can take 100 mg of SMILE at breakfast, 100 mg before dinner and 200 mg at bedtime. In week four, you will be on a very low dose of antidepressant medication and will need to take 200 mg of SMILE before breakfast, dinner and bedtime. In week five, you are no longer on antidepressant medication and now you can stay on SMILE. Take one scoop of MAGsmart at bedtime during this process to ensure that you do not experience side effects from withdrawal of the antidepressant medication.
Reduced Anxiety and Better Sleep
My son has been suffering with social anxiety at school so much so that he was skipping out. I started him on SMILE as you suggested and it has only been 2 weeks and his anxiety has improved dramatically and he is sleeping better. Thank you again. It was painful watching my child suffer. - CH, SK
