> I've taken 5HTP and it was not very effective, certainly nothing like the medications. I've had better results with plain L-Tryptophan (my doctor prescribes it through a compounding pharmacy). I take 1 or 2 grams before bedtime, and it really helps me sleep. I think it is helping with the depression, too, as I am managing to stay off the meds most of the time. And I like having a sex life again, too!

Hi, I've been curious about 5HTP since I read that you can't buy L-Tryptophan in health
food stores anymore. My biggest concern is
whether it will cause weight gain like all the
prescription ad's seem to. I even had increased
appetitie on St. John's Wort!
