took away that nagging desire to eat! And helped with my anxiety and depression. I've actually been able to focus and organize for the first time in ages. I've been on assorted meds for the past 15 years, and nothing has worked this well. I've been off all prescriptions for a month now, and I feel great. I feel like me again thanks to 5-htp, combined with rhodiola. Took some time to experiment with dosages, but I found that about 30mg of the 5-htp is plenty. 100mg made me sleep, a nice dreamy sleep, but I can't sleep all day, too much to do. Even taking it every other day works well. I've tried LOTS of supplements over the past year, nothing has had such a profound effect as this. And this is the 1st time I felt I needed to write a review, please try it!
If you know that you're a 'good dreamer' these would be lovely. If you're a person who knows their dreams are generally not happy and blissful BEWARE, you could wake up screaming. I stopped taking these immediately, so i cannot comment on the effect of taking these long-term.
Mild effect so far in 2 weeks

I purchased this product to help with my migraines and suppress my sweet cravings. As for migraines, effect is mild with using 3 times a day, still have to take migraine medications(about the same amount). With cravings it does a little better, reducing it to about in half, which makes me happy :) I'm only using this product for a couple weeks, so see what happens in a longer run.
Seeing benefits already

These actually put me in a better mood and really help me get a deeper sleep. I just take one 20-30 mins before bed.
Very Happy With it

It happens with my very heavy heartbreaking, anxiety and it makes me sleep well whenever I take it, I'm 34yrs of age n this is my first time ever taking something like this.
Not sure about effects

I want to believe that this is effective, but not sure. It bothers me also that it is recommended taking it on an empty stomach.
