I used the NOW brand but thought this one was a better bargain. It's cheaper, yes, and inferior. I'll be going back to NOW.
Not what I expected
Posted by Reviewer3122150 on Jul 30, 2012
I started taking these because I was hoping to improve my mood that my husband claimed was bad all the time. These, unfortunately, made it very hard to get out of bed in the morning and once I did, I felt like I was in a fog most of the day. I decided to take them earlier in the day, before dinner, but the sleepiness and fogginess did not improve. I think this is probably a supplement for people who are really stressed out and that's not me.

Gave me diarrhea. I took I capsule per day and after a week of surprise diarrhea attacks decided to quit. Could be the serotonin effect....
Better to take Natrol's Time Release

I've had a sleep disorder (poor-time generation!) for the longest time and found that Melatonin+5 HTP as a combo did me the trick. I was on Natrol's 5HTP time release before I tried this as I figured I'd save monies by buying this instead. Sad thing was, I then realised that this does NOT work for me. I didn't sleep as deep as I would before and had this tiring mornings as if I had a hangover and have been in the worse mood this year. I'm switching back to Natrol TR Melatonin and Natrol TR 5-HTP. Consult your doctor before you take anything!
