Which one is better for depression, paxil or 5htp? I was on paxil 2 years ago for depression and used it for 6 months. I have to repeat the therapy because some symptoms have occurred again. I was prescribed with 5htp. What is the difference and is 5htp better or stronger than paxil?

Paxil is selective serotonine reuptake inhibitor which means that it increases concentration of serotonine in brain. Serotonine is same thing as 5htp, 5 hydroxytriptamine. So, 5htp is generic name of paxil, made by GSK. Paxil is the most potent serotonin reuptake inhibitor and has powerful antidepression effect. So, it is not possible to say that one of them is better or worse. They are both excellent in treatment of depression.
