    I started taking 5 HTP by Solgar because I was experiencing very intense PMS that started to last longer than it should and I was super sleepy and tired all the time, didn't want to leave my house. With 2 capsules per day I am now feeling much better, the PMS symptoms are back to normal and reducing more and more, I no longer have cravings or want to kill everyone that disagrees with me. I am ... Show Full Comment

    Have been depressed last two years or so. Started taking 100mg and felt a little better, but when I went to 200 mg it was a HUGE difference. Haven't felt this good in a long time. Only thing is I have been having trouble sleeping on it - I am also taking GABA. I will deal with the sleeping thing somehow - just feels amazing to feel good again!
