Tryptophan will make you ill

about two weeks ago i was having trouble sleeping and a so called know it all
person gave me a bottle of Tryptophan. I thought it was similar to melatonan and knew nothing about it. I was told that it was a natural ingredient in your body. So i took it at night thinking that it was an all natural relaxer. i was being bothered also by chronic arthritis pain. I started having dry mouth and feeling nausia, and it was getting worse.

I finally looked up Tryptophan AKA: Other Names: L-tryptophn

I was shocked to find out that i was given a controlled substance that requires a prescription. I was puzzled why someone would give me this substance, I would advice all of you to avoid this producet unless you first speak to a medical doctor. My doctor told me that it was illegal to distribute this product without a prescription.

I learned a valuable lesson about trust.

What side effects should I watch for?

Major Side Effects

In the early 1990s, the FDA withdrew tryptophan from the U.S. market due to a rare but definite association with fatal or disabling eosinophilia-myalgia syndrome. This condition may cause symptoms that include fatigue, fever, muscle and joint pain, rash, and swelling in the face, arms, or legs. Some individuals may be more likely to experience problems, but who might be affected is impossible to determine before symptoms develop. The severity of the possible results is also unpredictable.

Less Severe Side Effects

Oral tryptophan has also been associated with less serious side effects that include:

* Blurry vision
* Daytime drowsiness
* Dry mouth
* Headaches
* Muscle incoordination
* Nausea

Not all of the risks, side effects, or interactions associated with the use of herbal products are known because few reliable studies of their use in humans have been done.
