I have depression and anxiety, no medications ever helped me, so I decided to try such natural remedies and bought this product, I took one capsule daily, didn't notice any difference, now taking two before bed and still the same results, I haven't notice any improvement in mood but I sleep longer now, I don't think I will try it again.

My Experience with 5htp. Honestly worst experience of my life, I'll start with the Negatives. First week 100mg for 2 days, WOW knocked me out, felt like I was on drugs, so drowsy & grogy, YUCK! Day 3 50mg still drowsy & in fairy land. DEPRESSED & crying spells like never before. Day 4-8 25mg. I took this at night on an empty stomach before bed. Day 4 worst Abdominal pain in my life, My stomach bloated, making me look 6 months pregnant. The cramps were unbearable, So so painful! Unfortunately the only positves for myself were it helped my bowel movements, I slept like a baby & dreams were so Vivid. 5 Htp is going straight in the bin were in belongs!

I muscle test nightly for these, along with some other supplements. I regularly take this product, and it helps me have a longer, deeper sleep between toilet wakeups.
