I've been taking this since December 15, 2011 and it works for me every single day. I feel so much calmer, and sleep so much better. My family has noticed an immediate change in me since I started taking this. I'm back to myself again. I am so amazed that it works perfectly. I'm so thankful I researched and found this. I love feeling like myself again, instead of feeling in the dumps every second of the day and flying off the handle. I'm so much more balanced out now and I can sleep during the night too and wake up refreshed. Before taking this, I didn't even feel like going to the store anymore. If I could stay in, I would. At work I'd be so sad all day and didn't know what was going on. Now I have found myself again and can smile, be silly and have fun!!! The every day stresses are so much more managable. I'm not miserable anymore!!! I totally recommend this. I love this!! I take it at 8am and 8pm. It works great!!!!!

[...] However, I bought this time-release 5-htp because I was unable to find a non-time-release version on the site that was reasonably priced. I took this product for two days. It worked well, and the effect lasted most of the day. The third day, I didn't take it and felt more stressed out than usual. I've never noticed this with non-time-release 5-htp. So, the product may be best for daily use, or it may be habit forming. Of course, I can't comment on long-term use.

        Got this for hubby to help with maintaining calm and it seems to be working, at least taking the edge off. I also take it and find that I feel relaxed. Not sure about the memory part though.

        Comments about Natrol 5-HTP TR, Time Release, 100mg, Tablets, 45 ea:

        I had to wait many months to see a psychiatrist, but had been having feelings of deparession. My therapist suggested I try 5-htp and I thought Why not? I started by taking regular (non time-released) 5-htp and it made me very tired, so I only took 50mg at bedtime. When I ran out of that, I bought this version to see if it would help with the tiredness, but it only comes in 100mg. So I started taking 100 mg after 5pm (before bedtime). It definitely took away the draggy feeling that the regular 5-htp gave me. And over a few weeks or so I noticed a lightening of my depression and feeling more hopeful about difficult things in my life. That was maintained for about 3 months. Then I saw the psych and they put me on 100mg of Wellbutrin XR and told me to stop taking the 5-htp since it's not regulated. After 4 weeks, the negative feelings came back up and I felt down again like I did about 4 months before. I decided to start taking the 5htp again (and check back with my dr) and after about a week I'm back to normal. So 2 things, 1) clearly I need a med that deals with seratonin and 2) this stuff may not be regulated like Rx medications, but it works. Very grateful.

            I use this product daily. I prefer it to any chemical drugs out there. It helps me to keep calm. I also drink oolong tea on a regular which helps to keep me relaxed as well.

                I suffer from insomnia and while I ordered these to help lose a few pounds they really are helping me sleep through the night as well. I have also noticed that I am not craving carbs and junk food either. I ordered two more bottles today because I've been passing the junk foods by at every opportunity since using these for the past week!

                  This product works great as a sleep aid. It also improves mood - I have been able to discontinue Zoloft after taking it for a few years. I like the time release formula, as the mood improvement seems to last through the next day. You do need to take it for a month or two to get the mood improvement, in my experience. As a sleep aid, it doesn't knock you out like taking Benadryl or something, but after you fall asleep you will sleep more soundly and awaken more refreshed.
