Uh-oh... (I'm so confused)I was just about to get some 5-HTP...

I realize that the results of each of these meds varies individually, that's the understatement of the year, huh? (dammit, I want a magic pill!!) hehe but seriously, can I ask you all what (if anything) seems to be agreed by the majority here *not* to cause sleepiness/fatigue... this is what I am primarily fighting. If I can combat that I can at least stay awake long enough to figure out what else I need to do ;o)
