    I tried every supplement and drug on the market in an attempt to control my often life-threatening depression, for which I had been hospitalized many times. ALL of the prescription drugs that I tried made my illness worse, and all of the natural healthy alternatives failed to improve matters adequately. samE had helped a bit at times, but it was way too expensive and destroyed my stomach. 5-HTP is like a miracle for me, and this brand is the best I have tried; the most effective. If only doctors would recommend this instead of drugging their patients with dangerous prescription meds! I still have bad days now and then, but I am far indeed from those nightmares that forced me into hospitals.

    Sorry!!! but the result was not as expected, very weak effectiveness and the symptom of depression return back, although I am taking 2x50mg pills am and 2x50mg pm. But to be fair the depression not as strong as before but it came back after changing the 5HTP old brand "country-life" with this product.

      Comments about Nature's Way 5-HTP, 50mg, Tablets, 60 ea:

      I, apparently like millions of other people, heard about 5-HTP from Dr. Oz. I've been taking doctor prescribed meds for mild anxiety/mild depression for about 5 years. Over the course of those 5 years, things in my life changed a bit and I got rid of a lot of stress. I thought it was time to try a more organic approach, rather than stay on meds any longer. It's been about a month of tapering off of my meds and suplementing with the 5-HTP....so far so good! Who knows if it's the placebo effect, or if 5-HTP really works for me...I don't care really as long as it seems to help. I've not felt any anxiety or sadness AND as a bonus...it has helped with my horrible PMS. For the first time in 20 years...I had almost no PMS symptoms. It's worth taking it just for that! The only caveat is that I sometimes get a mild headache after I take them. Nothing unbearable though.

      Comments about Nature's Way 5-HTP, 50mg, Tablets, 60 ea:

      I take 5-HTP as an anti-depressant, and for me it works. This product worked very well for me with no side effects UNTIL they changed the formulation. The original pills were thick solid white tablets. The new pills are thin and dirty white with orange specs. I take only(1) 5-HTP 50mg pill at lunchtime. The new pills promptly began making me nauseous. Why change the formulation? I have to wonder if they found a cheaper supplier with possibly a less pure manufacturing process.

      Comments about Nature's Way 5-HTP, 50mg, Tablets, 60 ea:

      It did have the desired effect in the beginning, but it significantly lessened over time. Not quite what I needed but hey, the sleeping effects worked too so I guess it was pretty decent.

      Summary: Worked but not quite enough for me.

          I am taking it as an appetite suppressant and it works well to take that edge off the urge to eat. I actually take time to see if I am really hungry or just bored. I also seem to get full faster. I feel more mellow and better in control of my emotions, since I tend to be and impatient, anxious person. My 14 yr old daughter is also taking it and said that it has helped ease her menstral cramps, shortend and lightend her cycle.

            Comments about Nature's Way 5-HTP, 50mg, Tablets, 60 ea:

            I'm a nervous Nellie - quite anxious and tense most of the time. I saw Dr. Daniel Amen's PBS program and decided to try 5HTP. I've tried several antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications and can't tolerate the side effects. I'm always hopeful an alternative is out there somewhere.

            I don't know whether the alleviation of my anxiety and tension is because of 5HTP or if it's a psychosomatic (positive) reaction to taking the 5HTP, but who cares?! I'm feeling quite a bit of relief and that's heavenly. I'm much more relaxed overall, I am able to manage my interactions with people much better (I usually get very nervous and babble on and on when I'm talking to people) and I can handle my reactions to stressors better.

            Given my experience with so many medications and efforts that haven't worked, I'm very pleased with my experience with 5HTP. It's affordable and the only side effect I've noticed is very vivid dreams (but not nightmares).

              I took this as a remedy to some mild mood swings of depression. I am not clinically depressed, but was just having some difficulties w/ life and they were getting the better of me. This product eliminated these mood swings and helped me get back on track emotionally. I take 1 tablet w/ food am and pm, and it does the trick. I cannot say if it would help w/ more severe forms of depression, just that it worked for me.

                    Serotonin is something your brain needs to function, if you have a low level on reserve it can have a negative impact on mood and higher thought processes. 5-HTP is a Serotonin precursor, meaning that is give the body the raw materials to make more. Normally you only get the raw materials through your diet (and many people are lacking in that department). By directly feeding your brain you can keep your Serotonin levels high and you can feel like you're walking on clouds. For an extra added mood enhancing, check out Rhodiola Rosea, also sold here. By taking one of each every morning I have made a vast improvement in my life.
