Brief Answer:
It is safe

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

First of all I am considering L Theanine rather than mentioned L Theonine in your query.

The L threonine is considered safe upto1 gram a day and there is nothing to worry about the serotonin syndrome when used under guidance of mental health professional.

The recommended dose of the L Theanine is 200 to 400 mg per day and this should be the starting dose rather than 600 mg per day as mentioned in your query.

I hope this answers you.
Feel free to write back to me if you have more questions.
Thanks again.
