      I take this between ovulation and start of period. Makes such a difference in the severe PMS I experience. I wish that I would have known about this many years ago. I never wanted to take a drug for this. So, I just experienced it along with my poor loved ones. I recommend this to all who experience PMS and anxiety/depression before using drugs.

          Comments about NOW Foods 5-HTP, 100mg, Vegetarian Capsules, 120 ea:

          When I first started the product, about a year ago, I was taking 1 vcap in the morning and 1 in the evening. It helped tremendously with my anxiety. It takes the edge off so you can think through what you are feeling, instead of being overwhelmed and reacting to what you are feeling. Once I got control over the anxiety, I stopped taking it (took it for about 2 months). But then winter came around and I got a pretty bad case of SAD this year. So I started taking 1, 100mg vcap a day to help me get out of the funk. I will probably continue with the 1x per day until spring comes. For me, it works quickly, within 3 days and I intuitively know when I can stop using it (no adverse reactions to stopping). I don't like the 'taste' of them though, if you put them in your mouth, the taste/aroma is pretty gross to me. Two things I've noticed: 1) it makes me hyper/restless, so I take it at dinner or earlier so it doesn't interrupt my sleep (weird, I know, because others use it as a sleep aid) and 2) I have to take it with food or my stomach feels tense.

            My husband and I use 5-HTP every night to help with sleep and as a mood lifter. I'm not a medical person so I don't know if it would qualify scientifically as an anti-depressent. I do know that my husband changed to this from Zoloft and has had good results.

              Comments about NOW Foods 5-HTP, 100mg, Vegetarian Capsules, 120 ea:

              5-HTP has been a lifesaver for me! I have been on and off anti depressents for years until doing research on supplements and discovered 5-htp. I haven't been on antidepressents in over a year and feel so much better. I began taking the supplement several times a day and have now cut back to one in the afternoon and two before I go to bed along with my calcium, mag,d3 and zinc supp. If I feel a wave of anxiety or depressive thoughts coming I take a bit more. I can feel the calming effect within 15-30 minutes. I am so thankful to have found this supplement and not have to be on anti depressent or anti anxiety medication any more. Please try it!!
