Doctor

A:   5HTP (5-hydroxytrptophan) is usually used for weight reduction, though it has shown to be useful in conditions like depression, sleeplessness, etc. Niacin is a vitamin, which is metabolized to 5HTP. Many researches have shown no side effects with either of drugs, but also shown no specific advantage with the combination of drugs as one drug get metabolized to other. Niacin is safe drug in gouty arthritis
