    I ordered this product because I had read that it would help with Night Eating Syndrome.I've been taking 1 capsule before bed for approximately a month now and I have not been up once to eat something after going to bed. I have found it has reduced my craving for carbs overall which is part of the Night Eating Syndrome. I feel it has boosted my mood which is to be expected since this product involves the production / use of serotonin in the brain. I have found I've had more dreams and more vivid dreams but not nightmares. I do take prescription anti-depressant and sleeping meds and have felt a little groggier in the morning. I've not experienced any other noticiable side effects. I would recommend trying this product, consult a doctor or pharmacist first please, for anyone who is experiencing NES symptoms or perhaps a lot of stress. It has helped me, hopefully it can help others too.

    Comments about Natrol 5-HTP, 100mg, Double Strength, Capsules, 30 ea:

    Bought this to use as a natural sleep aid, and it does work for this purpose. Taken 1-2 hours before bed, it does help me fall asleep and stay asleep. However, if I take 2 capsules, it causes diarrhea within about 30 mins. If I just take 1 capsule, I still have some mild stomach upset. I've been taking this for 2 weeks, so this may be something that gets better. I have not noticed any changes in mood, but I am not depressed or anxious to begin with.

      Not sure if the product does anything for me, as I stopped after just over a week. The only effect I felt, was that I was feeling tired and sleepy, remarkably so. I might use it as a sleep aid once I need to get back into a normal 9-5 working day pattern. Other than that, it looks like wasted money.

        I have periodic anxiety attacks, but I cannot afford doctor visits, no health insurance and afraid of side effects of anti-anxiety meds. I've been taking this for 2 weeks. I take one of these in the morning and one in the after noon and it gets me through the day great! It really helps keep me calm without having to spend a fortune going to a doctor to try something dangerous or ineffective. I take this with St Johns Wort and Melatonin. I only take the melatonin at night right before bed though, but take 5-htp and st johns wort throughout the day. I am very thankful for these more natural remedies!

          Comments about Natrol 5-HTP, 100mg, Double Strength, Capsules, 30 ea:

          I last posted on 12/16/11. I take one Natrol 5HTP 100MG tablet at 8AM and then at 8PM. I find that I still feel great every day!!! I am much much more calm every day. My stress level has dropped almost to nothing and my sleep has greatly improved! My moods are 99.9% better and through my period I was not irritable. My husband and I were out for a day and he loved that the real me, the woman he fell in love with 13 years ago was finally back!!! Things have been much calmer in our home. Christmas Day was a total breeze for me. I was totally relaxed and everything went great!!! I find that I have more energy too. Even if I don't get enough sleep from going to bed too late sometimes, I still can get through the day. When I do sleep at night, I sleep straight through the night now, unlike tossing and turning before I started taking this pill a few weeks ago. Everything has improved, so I wanted to give an update.

            Comments about Natrol 5-HTP, 100mg, Double Strength, Capsules, 30 ea:

            I've been feeling such anxiety and depression. I researched last night and found that 5HTP really works. Well, my husband and I went out to buy some at [@] today after I explained how terrible I have been feeling and I've been very worried how bad it has been getting lately. I just have not been myself at all. I am 43 and don't know if I am in perimenopause or what but I know that I am not calm anymore. I've been anxious, shaky and depressed daily. I've been extremely moody and fly off the handle so easy and it's really worried me. I took one Natrol 5HTP (100mg) tablet two hours ago. After a little while I could feel it working through my body. I could just feel little things. Then just now, I really felt it kick in and I started being my silly self again and giggling. My husband starting laughing (with me) and he could tell it was working!!! I hope every day will be like this!!!! I pray it'll continue!

            I take one in the morning with my coffee.
            Sleep great, no more crazy frightening depressing dreams. Helps with night eating, helped with social anxiety-could help agoraphobia maybe. Who knew this was from a lack of serotonin or low level. Makes me feel super mellow and calm, no side effects at all, can skip a day. Have not had headaches.

              Have been using it for about 2 years for my fibromyalgia. Greatly helps keep serotonin levels up and moods level. Would highly recommend patients with fibromyalgia to at least give it a try (esp. if you don't want to take prescription anti-depressants).

                I have recently gotten off of an antidepressant and heard horror stories of the ssri discontiuation syndrome. I have myself have been suffering from the symptoms -- nausea, headache , lethargy and malaise (to name the severe symptoms). So i did my research and heard about 5htp. It is suppose to help ease the symptoms and for me it has helped so much. the antidpressant helped get me out of depression but its not a drug I wanted to remain on. I have been excercising and eating healthy and have been feeling a whole lot better. i would recommend this.
