After much research, I discovered that a combination of 5-HTP and Inositol creates an anti-anxiety effect, similar to that of Prozac (but of course without all of the nasty drug side effects anti-depressants cause). I am the mother of two children under four, and I take one of each in the morning and I find that I am less easily stressed, respond in a much calmer manner and am generally a less anxious person as a result.
SAVED MY LIFE

I was having panic attacks-couldn't rest, couldn't sleep, fear of dying-horrible. The doctor wanted to put me on Zoloft-which I did not want to do. Started taking the Inositol which has been a Godsend! Checked with my doctor, who said it wouldn't interfere with my blood pressure meds. I take 4-5 daily and Goodbye panic-hello normal life!! Thank you-Thank you-Thank you.
Helps with Sleep

I began taking extra Inositol after reading The Edge Effect by Dr. Braverman. After taking the inventory, I read the chapters and recommendations for my primary neurotransmitter type and my symptoms which included not sleeping well through the night. So I added Inositol and 5-HTP to the melatonin that I was already taking. I am not one to take prescription sleep aids and these natural products really help.

I use Inositol to keep me calm throughout the day. It is an excellent tranquilizer.

I take 500 mg of Inositol and .25 mg of Melatonin and get the best sleep I've gotten in years. I like NOW products; good quality and prices.
Inositol 500mg Capsules

I recently ordered Inositol. It was recommended for my 6yr old son by Pfeiffer Treatment Center. It helps with calming on days that may be stressful for him. I was instructed by the RN that he could have 3 capsules 3 times a day as needed for calming. We love it and will be purchasing again from iHerb

This works so far! I notice a difference. I used to have many anxiety attacks throughout the day, but since I started this in combination with B-vitamins and magnesium I have been much better. Might be the placebo effect, but hey as long as it works and I can stay away from the bad pills with nasty side effects...:) Im very happy! Start with one a day for a week, then two a day for a week, then three and so on until you find the right dosage for you. Let your body get used to it. Might give you some light headaches and a little stomach problems the first few days, but it is worth it.

I take 3 caps a day (most days) my hair was thinning up top. now it;s coming back. I use minoxidill too, but it works 100% better with inositol.
Ok if not for the Insomnia

This would be great if it didn't cause insomnia. I feel so much more relaxed when I take it, but then I keep waking up in the middle of the night :/

Noticed definite difference in the way in which high doses of Inositol calms my anxiety.
