yo if you're an ex-drug addict, I am sure it works...but if you got no problems that are not curable naturally, stay away

5 HTP is a great supplement for mood stabilization, relaxation, and of course, promoting good sleep. You could argue whether or not it is the same as taking prescription drugs until you're blue in the face. I don't think people will ever agree on that one. I personally think it's very different to take natural supplements as opposed to prescriptions. But anyway, if sleep help is necessary, this is a great option without side effects (for most people). It's also something you can find pretty inexpensively. I get mine from seacoastvitamins.com, which is where I get most of my supplements.

^ Shameless!

I've found melatonin to be vastly superior to 5HTP and considerably cheaper. A pack of 60 5HTP 50mg tablets can be as steep as £15 (~$25) but melatonin is cheap as chips.$9 in the US and you'd get something like 120 3mg tablets. 5HTP is good for seratonin recharging but the conversion from 5HTP to seratonin is quite slow. The amino acids which your body uses to synth seratonin are not absorbed and used very quickly, other amino acids have preferential treatment and hence things like dopamine get recharged a lot faster than seratonin. That's why you hear of people like the thread starter going on week long meth binges but not of people going on week long ecstasy binges (not ones which work anyway). Usually you don't need to recharge your serotonin quickly so it's not a problem that your body doesn't synth it in the space of hours but rather days or weeks. A general sign that depleting your serotonin by any artificial means is not the wisest of choices.

5-HTP is also a cure for MDMA hangover.

Read the Wiki article, it identifies European marketted names, it also identifies there isn't much data on it's overall effects (both positive and negative)

Work for whom?

They may work well for some people, have no result on others, and make others worse.

If they work for you, then what you have done is the equivalent of winning a thousand pounds on your first lottery ticket.

For a person suffering from a deep depression which might result in suicide, the best place is in a hospital, where medicine can be finely regulated.

You aren't dangerous to the public, so it won't happen.

Mental health is one of the Cinderellas of the health service.
That's why people resort to their local herbal shop.
