    There's a lot of hype and misinformation about 5-htp. I choose Natrol because many companies add other, less safe, ingredients. Natrol is consistent. 50-100 mg can put me to sleep in 15-30 minutes and it's restful natural sleep. Best taken with B-vitamins but you can take a B-complex in the morning so you don't get an energy boost at night. Regular use of 5-htp has cut carb cravings and more effectively managed depression that prescription antidepressants. Taking 5-htp with an antidepressant can be dangerous so consult your dr if you may still have it in your system. Antidepressants are SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) help to keep serotonin in the bloodstream but if you are deficient it's like pressing the gas pedal with an empty tank. The 5-HTP refuels the tank. It's especially good if you are under stress and need more serotonin than you take in. Symptoms of serotonin deficiency include carb cravings, depression, sleep difficulties and intestinal problems (something like 90% of body's serotonin is in your gut, a supplement can restore "normal function" so start slowly).

    Well, I read all of these wonderful reviews and had to give this stuff a try. I took one 50mg capsule on Tues. evening. I dreamt a lot, which I don't normally do. I didn't exactly have a good night's sleep because I kept waking up, but it was ok. The dreaming was nice :). The next day I took another capsule in the morn with breakfast. Was on a "high" sort of, just lots of energy all day. About 8pm I came down with sudden cramping which turned into diarrhea for about an hour. I also had a cough, so took some cough med before bed. Woke up an hour later very groggy - sinus medicine groggy, but I'd only had cough med. (which I've taken before without any side effects). Then my heart started racing and I had to get an ice pack out of the freezer and hold on the back of my neck to keep me calmed down until I fell asleep! It was extremely strange. Weird enough that I'm too afraid to try another dose!!

      Comments about Natrol 5-HTP, 50mg, Capsules, 45 ea:

      I really like this product. I deal with a lot of stressful situations at the moment and I use this to keep my mind positive and motivated. I take this once or twice a week depending on my mood. It works very fast. I like the low 50 mg dosage. its just enough to pick me up without feeling "high". I do get mild side effects like dizzyness and blurry vision when I take this more than twice a week. its a good idea to cycle with this on different days so your body dosen't develop a tolerance. cycling also reduces the side effects.

                  I lost my health insurance over 5 years ago. I couldn't afford to get my medicine for the mild anxiety/depression that I suffer with. So with some research I turned to 5-HTP 50mg. I tried several different brands but so far nothing has compared to Natrol 5-HTP. Just recently, I couldn't find it anywhere and ran out. That was a BIG Mistake. You know when you think you are OK without it and then you are without it and realize that's not the case...well that happened to me. And the 100mg is too strong for me. Lesson Learned. Some people take it at night and some people take it in the morning. Don't be afraid to do what is right for you.

                    I started taking 5-HTP for appetite control, better sleep, and improved mood. I take 100 mg with breakfast and 50 mg with dinner. I've been on it for about nine months now, and I notice quite a difference in my mood and sleep. This is the first year I didn't get the winter blues. It doesn't seem to do much for appetite control, but I highly recommend it for sleep and mood.

                      If you suffer from depression 5htp is worth a try. It is fairly inexpensive and doesn't have any really terrible side effects. I initially had a mixed experience; I noticed a definate head clearing and mood elevation but I also felt kind of odd and did feel the nausea and stomache cramps that others have noticed. I had an idea though that I tried out and it has made a huge difference for me. I took a 50 mg capsule, opened it and poured about 1/3 under my tongue and took it sublingually. It's a little bitter but manageable. This way it goes directly into your blood stream, bypassing the stomache. I am managing my depression now on less than a capsule a day. Sometimes mid-day I take another 1/3...so I take 1/3 in the a.m. and 1/3 later in the day. My mood has stayed clear and steady and life is manageable. Just an idea to pass along.
