Yes, makes a big difference   10/07/15

I was told about 5-HTP by a dr. in Germany about 5 years ago, tried it, and have been taking it ever since. Studies have found a correlation btw. people with fibro symptoms and low serotonin. 5-HTP is chemically btw. melatonin and serotonin, crosses the blood-brain barrier and your body turns it into serotonin once it reaches the brain - so I have been told. Some people believe if your body is not making enough serotonin, it makes more sense to take something to increase it, rather than something to help your body from reabsorbing the little that is there (SSRI anti-depressants). It is made from a plant and a natural product. This has not cured my fibro, but it def. has made it 'better' and I highly recommend it. It also cured my headaches - and I had a headache for 20 years, it seemed. Now I rarely get them. It makes me sleepy, so I take it before bed, and it also is good if you have trouble sleeping. It doesn't give any sleep-hangover, and has no side-effects for most people, other then it could irritate one's stomach. I have had no side-effects at all. It def. elevates my mood and lessens the pain. I take this at night, and Sam-E during the day. Sam-E is supposed to increase dopamine and increase your energy. It also helps with my fibro pain. It's subtle, but I find the 5-HTP like an 'afterglow - just had good sex' feeling, and the Sam-E like enthusiasm. P.S. I buy them both online and it's quite a bit cheaper. I buy the Sam=E from individual suppliers on ebay for much much less, and have found it to work just as good as the big-name brands.

I love 5-HTP   04/04/11
Reviewed by:     Location Not Given
when I got fybro I had to change my whole life that was over 15 years ago. After 2 months of taking 5-HTP, from walgreens, I am plaining going back to school. Because now I can think I can't believe it at least my brain is me again. My hope it that after a year the rest of me follows.
