Reloqueen, I know what you mean! I suffered from restless leg syndrome too, and 5HTP worsened it significantly when I took it before bedtime. HOWEVER, I started taking a B-Complex vitamin and iron supplements, and my RLS went away completely. Now I don't have a problem taking 5HTP, and its effects on my mood and appetite are amazing!
Hello do u need to take any other vitamins with 5htp? Can u give me website where u got it,?
Hi, glad to hear that it has helped you, I just started and feel good already. Can you tell us the website where you ordered 8 bottles for $30.00. Would appreciate it very much, thanks
why I can't purchase any of your products?Actually the features are not working
I totally love it and I just discovered it, however, I guess I was taking too much because for the last week I have been so sick right after consumption and maybe because I take it in the morning (I'm switching to right before bed) but I throw up, I cant function for a good 3 hours after throwing up,It's horrible but I refuse to stop taking it considering the positive effects it has had. The bottle I have recommends 2 (100mg each) and I was taking 4. I took 3 today before reading this posting and I was sick for about 4 hours and I vommited once. I am feeling better now and I love the way I feel mentally about daily issues where in the past I would have freaked out and not have dealt with anything in a proactive way. I am open for suggestions or commentary.
From all I have read about 5-HTP, I think you're not supposed to take more than 100 mg a day. There's a chance you can get Serotonin Syndrome if you take too much.
Yes, I finished off a bottle. Anxiety levels are extremely low and I've gone through a period that typically would have had me raging significantly more than I did. Also, once finishing the bottle, I slept quite a bit and seem to be napping more often. Might have taken a little too much too fast. No syndrome effect, but perhaps not fullying enjoying the smooth bore feeling. Will not be buying another bottle anytime soon. I do recommend this stuff to others though if they take in moderation. I am not a pharmacologist.

Can You mix 5htp with rhodiola? (5htp At Night And rhodiola in the morning?)
I have been taking 5htp for a while now and it works a treat. i am now on the road to recovery from a long battle with depression.
My husband just started taking 5htp last week, and he is a completely different person as a result. I came across these posts because I was looking for the side effects of this product and peoples' reactions to this supplement, due to the drastic change in my husband's behavior. He was always irritable and couldn't handle emotional issues, even the most normal every day type of situations. This always made me think he had some sort of an imbalance, chemical or otherwise. He was becoming progressively more irrate about the most minute of problems. He was unbearable to be around, and it was destroying our relationship. I can't even explain the relief and the hope I now have for him, and for us.
I am not an advocate of this product, because I don't know the long term side effects, or the "negatives" in general.. But I can share what a 180 degree change I have seen and what a positive effect it has had on him.. Absolutely flabbergasting! Almost seems too good to be true.. that's how effective this supplement is. If anyone has any info on possible negative long term or short term side effects, please do share..
My chiropractor suggested 5htp for my stress. It took about 5-6 weeks before I noticed a change but it was good. It not only reduced my stress but also my migraines and eating habits. I have been taking 5htp for about 6 months with no bad reactions. I had to take strong pain medications for the migraines and this has reduced my intake by about 75 percent and still getting better.. Remember to have some patience as it did take a while before I noticed any changes
I am a 58 yo woman and thought I would try 5HTP after reading about it - I was suffering from mild anxiety. I took the first tablet and got the symptoms your describe as Serotonin Syndrome - I felt completely spaced out, vision problems, sweats, nausea, confusion. palpitations. I have never taken another tablet phew!
