> Has anyone had any success with 5HTP for depression? I just bought some to try.

In my previous post I forgot to mention I had also been taking 300mg 3 times a day of St. Johnswort for two weeks. So the success may have been due to the combination, not just 5HTP. However, I had great results after just 2 weeks, and St. Johnswort is supposed to take longer than that to work. So I still believe most of the success was due to 5HTP. I have tried St. Johnswort alone and it was not helpful. But there may be some kind of beneficial synergy between 5HTP and St. Johnswort. You might consider adding St. Johnswort if it seems the 5HTP might need a boost. Who knows. We're all different. Sadly there's no litmus test...gotta try things to find out. Stay in touch. JohnL.
