I'm on an antidepressant. Can I still take the multivitamin powder you recommend?

Published: October 18, 2012

If one is on an antidepressant, should they take the multivitamin powder you recommend, since it contains l-trytophan? Especially if one is highly sensitive to medicines? If not, what other way can I get all the multivitamins without taking a pill (I have malabsorption issues)?

Thank you.



The amounts of tryptophan and arginine were both kept very low in the multivitamin powder specifically, so the powder is very good even if one is on antidepressant medications. As vitamins both in the pure form and as a powder result in helping absorption, this form is especially good for people with absorption problems.
