I've been on 5-HTP for a while, and the doctor prescribed me Tramadol. I realized that taking these two could be potentially fatal since they both act on serotonin.
I know that serotonin converts into melatonin, so I have a basic question.
If I were to take Melatonin, would it be safe to take with Tramadol? I assume that since Melatonin is the final step in the Tryptophan>5-HTP>Serotonin>Melatonin stage, that taking a melatonin pill should have nothing to do with actual serotonin in your brain.
Would taking Tramadol and Melatonin at night pose a possible risk for Serotonin Syndrome, or are they safe to take together?
Don't mean to be rude, but I need someone with actual knowlege in this type of field to answer as I need a 100% positive answer.
Thank you in advance.
