Maybe a good product but not for me

Purchased at iHerb

Firstly I bought this product to help me relax and also because the description states “L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid important in human nutrition for the synthesis of melatonin and serotonin, hormones regulating mood and stress response” I tried one tablet the first night, I had broken sleep and nightmares (which I never usually have) I felt tired and lethargic the next day and was very highly strung, my mood was all over the place from being angry and stressed to crying. Two weeks later I tried a ¼ of the capsule (splitting the powder into another four empty capsules) so not to have such a big dosage, I had the same reaction as above being angry and very emotional, I had to call my mother to help me focus and try to calm down, I was on edge after both episodes for a few days after taking this product. I was very disappointed with L-Tryptophan as I thought it was going to help me with being anxious, not make me worse to the point where I felt I had lost control. I am sure it does help many people, but as we are all different, it didn’t help me but made my situation worse. I also love the NOW foods brand, don’t get me wrong, nearly all my other vitamins are from NOW as they do have a fantastic pure products and I would be lost without the Magnesium Citrate powder in particular and also purchase the C-1000, 250 Tablets and their Amino-9 Essentials Powder.

Made my wife drowsy, but the sleep quality was poor. The grogginess would continue all through the morning until the afternoon. This was on only 1 tablet per night.
