Helps in my insomnia

Posted by iHerb Customer on March 21 2018 | Verified Purchase

I will have insomnia around 1 week before my period. This product does help me to go to sleep. However, it gives me very vivid dreams which is a side effect that I read about as well. ( I can't describe it but the dreams are different from normal times in terms of clarity , not content). Pro is that I don't find it addictive. After my menstruation period, my sleep cycle goes back to normal and i dont have to rely on it, compared to other sleep medication prescribed by doctor which i had taken before where the body develops tolerance. I alternate this with taking melatonin, and GABA

Thanks for your feedback!

prirodni zoloft

Posted by iHerb Customer on January 17 2018 | Verified Purchase

dobila sam zoloft zbog depresije i nuspojave su bile takve da sam odustala i potražila prirodnu zamjenu. 5htp i iherb su me doslovno spasili još jednom. počela sam sa najmanjom dozom i stanje se popravilo nakon par dana. ova vrsta nema suspojave, ne smeta mi na želudac. pijem ga zajedno sa litij orotatom od 5 mg. jako sam zadovoljna. naručujem ga unapred jer se bojim ostati bez ovih tableta. jako sam zadovoljna.

It helped the first time

Posted by iHerb Customer on January 5 2018 | Verified Purchase

I have anxiety disorder, when I took one pill the first time before bed, the effect was like taking xanax, it shut down my thoughts and relaxed me. But that was just the first time, since I tried to increase the dosage, took it at different time, but nothing helped. I stopped taking it because I don’t know how to get the same effect as the first time.
