Dear Shaan,
I really appreciate your concern for your friend..He needs immediate help from a psychiatrist or both his physical or mental health would be affected. you could take him to institute of mental health at erragadda or the closest hospital to you..all hospitals have emergency and from there on a psychiatrist can take on this case..Doctors might want to know how this started or if your friend in on any drugs or under any stress..
Wish you and your friend all the best

Also substituted L-tryptophan for the 5htp and sometimes interchange the melatonin with valerian root. He does not take any prescripts. That what put him in this mess to start with....

I am 66 and my scalp is itchy, but only on the crown at top and back, my hair is falling out more than it ever has before. I am an insomniac, who only sleeps three hours per night. If I retire at 10.pm, it takes an hour to go to sleep and I wake at precisely 2.pm. Whatever the hour is when I doze off I still only get three hours. It almost seems as if my Cicardian Rythms have been programmed to sleep for three hours only. Is my loss of hair related to my insomnia?
