I've had on and off depression for 5 years now. It was a little over a year ago that the depression came back along with anxiety and for over a year now I've been having constant depression + anxiety and for anyone that experiences daily 'body low' feelings along with chest tightness, it's unbearable and very stressful on the mind + body. I chose not to go on antidepressants years ago, even when it was highly suggested by doctors that I start taking antidepressants I refused. I decided to give St Johns Wort a try and that did help but I had to stop taking it, due to complications. I decided to give 5-htp a shot and first tried the NOW FOODS brand after hearing / reading so many positive reviews about 5-htp itself and I tried it for over a month and my friend also tried it with me but we both experienced the same effects... up moods followed by comedowns. I didn't want to give up on 5htp as I really wanted to believe that it did work, like it did for many others. I started taking this brand for a month and started to notice the effects after a few weeks. I was able to handle my emotions much better and the anxiety / depression lifted and it was so so relieving to finally feel 'normal' again after dealing with terrible daily anxiety / depression for over a year, untreated. A few weeks ago I started skipping the the 5-htp, due to forgetting and probably feeling too good to realize that I still needed it. Quite unexpectedly, I started to feel anxious again and the depression came back and I was confused and feeling like I did before, a feeling I didn't want to experience again. I started taking the 5-htp immediately and after a few days I lost the anxiety and depression and now I am feeling calm. I don't usually write reviews but from my experience, I really want others to give this product a try if they are wondering whether they should or not. The NOW FOODS brand did absolutely nothing for me, but this works wonders and I can't tell you how good it feels to feel calm and to have a positive outlook. If this brand doesn't work for you, try another brand. But I can say that this brand is excellent, and works for ME. Life changing.
I have been taking Jarrow Formulas 5HTP for about 3 years. It helps me sleep and raises the seratonin level in my brain which wards away depression. I recommend this product for anyone wanting a good nights sleep all the way to severe depression.

After months of extreme anxiety I am feeling a lot more balanced and significantly less anxious. I use this in conjunction with Melatonin Sustain. Jarrow Formulas is fast becoming my preferred brand.

Not per expectations

I ordered this product after seeing the rave reviews of this brand. However I am really disappointed that this has not helped me at all like some other brands. Stopped using it after 5 days of use
Didn't make a difference.

5-HTP for depression/anger
Posted by 5125438981759784856 on Jun 29, 2015
I've been taking this, after a few months consideration, for 5 days now. I take it on an empty stomach first thing in the morning and it has considerably altered my severe mood swings. I refused to take prescription medication for my anxiety/depression and am a long time sufferer. After much research I decided to try this and I wish I didn't wait so long. I can function like a normal human being again. I definitely recommend this for anyone that is looking for relief that does not want to take prescriptions.
