Haven't used yet

But I don't see how it could be very different from the 5HTP I'm currently using until the bottle is done. At this price point, it's definitely worth a shot!

Horrible nightmares

Posted by Reviewer2381562 on Mar 04, 2016

Gave me horrible nightmares. Switched to time release version which helps me sleep and relax. I can only take this in daytime now.

Made me suicidal

Took product for 3 days, gave me a gross tingling sensation in my upper body. Felt constipated and a sick feeling in my stomach for hours after taking it.

I have only taken a few pills but my blood pressure has dropped down from 150/90 down to 128/80 and my temper has mellowed. I am throughly impressed with this product and will definitely reorder.
