This is Dr. David

Zenphorol contains 5HTP (303mg) which is a precursor to serotonin, Chamomile (300mg) - treat generalised anxiety disorder, Lemon Balm and other herbal agents.

Cipralan is Cibenzoline a new anti-arrhythmia drug to help with heart arhythmias.

the interactions between these herbal agents and conventional medications are not well known.

let his doctor who is prescribing the Cipralan know that he is taking this alternative herbal agent with 5HTP in it.

taking both agents should not cause a problem.

but his doctors should know everything he is taking

let me know if you have questions.
