I use tryptophan to help me sleep. I had a prescription for Ambient which worked for a while but lost it's effectiveness.

I use herbal teas, melatonin and tryptophan primarily and find I get good results this way.

I used to take it regularly until the FDA took it of the market when this supplement, made by a JAPANESE firm and possibly contaminated, caused serious adverse reactions. In, what looked to me like a case of overreaction, the FDA removed ALL L-Tryptophan from the market. This was also the time when the FDA tried to remove all "food-supplements" from the market.
