5HTP worked for me: might be worth a shot

Posted by john1022 on November 29, 2005, at 18:39:09


I just typed out a long post but accidently deleted it. I was on this board in a very serious depression about 2 years ago. Nothing had worked for me and I started having extremely negative reactions to Effexor and another anti-depressant.

Long story short, I tried 5HTP and it worked and has continued to work perfectly for 2 years straight. I was up to 6 pills for a while at my psych's wishes (she is both a holistic and medical psych) but have only been taking 2 pills a day now for about a year

I felt immediate effects from it after about 5 days to a week of taking it and the fog completely cleared after about a month or two.

Just wanted to share my story because I know how hard depression can be and trying to find a med that works. If this can help just ONE PERSON, I will be happy. It might be worth a shot for you. Look into it first, research and see if it's right for you. Don't take with SSRI's of coarse

Hope all is well and best of luck to everyone. I know that depression is probably something I will have to deal with the rest of my life, but luckily I have been stable for a while now and I know it's because of 5HTP.

If my friend I met on here years ago is still around post and say hi! (you know who you are!) Take care guys
