September 02, 2015Reviewer: Simon in Japan* I've had terrible sleep for several years but I'm pretty sure this has improved my sleep, I take 2 along with 1mg of melatonin (also NOW), and I sleep really well and wake up after about 7.5 hours feeling refreshed. Cutting out all caffeine also seems to be a factor.This review is specific to 5-HTP, 200 mg, Double Strength
1 of 5 people found the following review helpfulMarch 11, 2010Reviewer: Luke in Oklahoma* Well, this is supposed to be a sleep aid, antidepressant and mild anti-hunger product. So far, it has done none of the above. I take melatonin to sleep every night and tried the 5-HTP last night. I stayed awake for hours, tossing and turning trying to get to sleep. About 1am, I gave up and took the melatonin and fell asleep in 15 minutes. Today, I took the 5-HTP 2 hours before lunch and felt no loss of hunger or appetite. I don't know what to think about it at this point. I cannot speak of how well it does with anti-depressing, I'm not depressed.This review is specific to 5-HTP, 100 mg
3 of 3 people found the following review helpfulAugust 22, 2008Reviewer: Camille in Western Australia* My husband experienced anxiety problems. When he asked his doctor to prescribe him something, the doctor suggested 5-HTP instead. We were doubtful in trying a supplement for a very profound and debilitating problem; but within days, he felt different, happy, and handled stress with ease. He was a different man within 2-weeks! I started taking it after about a year, because work worries began waking me in the night and keeping me awake. That all stopped and now, I swear by it also!This review is specific to 5-HTP, 100 mg

It really helps. Have tried another brand that did not work. Great price.This review is specific to 5-HTP, 100 mg
