Over excitable horse, ever heard of 5-HTP?

I have an 11 y/o Pony of America gelding, I recently found out I'm giving him too much grain. He's since than been excessively animated and impossible to catch. I read that it was safe to give horses the substance 5-HTP, which can relax and subdue the horse.
Has anyone here tried this? Would like to know results.

Also He gets very upset when I show him a mouth bit, I recently discovered that this is because his upper right tusk is broken in half. I have switched to a bitless bridal,
Though I think his behavior shift is mostly due to the last time I tried to put the bit in his mouth.

Would appreciate any opinions, thanks.

Give the lack of grain time to work. He will settle down. The only thing that truely helps a hyperactice horse is work. Lots and lots of consistant, every day work.
