The great thing is, this stuff started working within 3 days for me. I know it's really working not only by my improved mood, but by those really vivid, constant dreams that I also had when SSRI's worked for me. Speaking of SSRI's, I turned to 5htp after a return to Prozac failed and Celexa and Zoloft proved problematic due to side effects (including the anorgasmia). I too took St. Johns and it did little or nothing, but 5htp is quite a different story. No side effects so far. I'll keep everyone posted. As you can tell, I'm delighted. If you have a Vitamin World near you, that's where I get mine.

In my experience 5HTP + St Johnswort together was a miracle. Either one alone left a lot to be desired, but together there was magic. I had a very bad puzzling side effect of genital/urine burning which caused me to stop 5HTP, which is a heartbreaker, because I had NEVER felt better before or since taking this combination. No 4 to 6 week wait either, just 2. Wishing it to be a miracle for someone else.
