I would appreciate advice on a drug regimen that will restore Serotonin while dealing with short-term anxiety symptoms?
38 Year old male, have lived in a high stress environment for 2 years and began to exhibit psychosomatic symptoms in late July 2016. Began a regimen of 10mg Lexapro and Lorazapam as needed needed for anxiety. Dosage eventually upped to 20 mg Lexapro with Betalol and Livotril.
20 mg Lexapro caused severe sexual side effects so medication was changed to Deanxit 2x daily after breakfast and lunch plus Lexapro 10 mg and Rivotril 2 mg at bedtime.
Anxiety symptoms have returned. I live in Thailand and have seen 5 medication changes between 3 different doctors. I would appreciate advice on a drug regimen that will restore Serotonin while dealing with short-term anxiety symptoms.
Serotonin can be increased through tryptophan (which is found in protein, protein powder nutritional supplements or as an amino acid supplement) and/or 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), an amino acid that is extracted from a bean from Africa.
