Didnt feel any efects

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jan 15, 2013 | Verified Purchase

Unfortunately I didn't feel any effects of the veggie caps. Maybe because of the small number of caps.

Thanks for your feedback!

Left me feeling 'artificially rested'

Posted by AptekaNaturalis on Dec 27, 2012 | Verified Purchase

After taking before bedtime i capsule I woke up feeling strange and uncomfortable like after taking bad sleeping pills. Yes, I slept through the night but in the morning I didn't feel happy and satisfied like after having a good night sleep. Also for those who takes antidepressants- consult your doctor- as 5HTP with certain antidepressants can lead to Serotonin syndrome- drug reaction that causes the body to have too much serotonin-with symptoms: agitation or restlessness,fast heart beat and high blood pressure and other symptoms.
