"I read about this product in Woman's World magazine. Supposedly it has a dual use but my main interest was in the weight loss it created as a side effect. My daughter started taking it before I did and started having headaches so she quit. I never have headaches so I started taking it and after the first dose I woke up with a headache so I quit taking it. I also discussed it with my doctor and since I take a prescription drug for Hypothyroidism, she didn't feel I should take it since it can interact with Thyroid medication. I know others have had great results losing weight with this product but I won't be one of them. If you are going to use it, use caution."
"I take a 50 mg 5- HTP Vitacost brand about 1 hour before bed time to help me sleep. I notice if I don't take one, I wake up cranky the next morning. So in addition to my prescription sleep aid, I always add 5 -HTP to the mix for a good nights rest and immediate awakening the next morning."
"This product had no effect on me whatsoever far as i could tell. Almost done with bottle. Did nothing for me, did not make me drowsy or help me sleep whatsoever. Will not be buying again. I have tried other brands of 5-HTP in the past with no effect there either. So it is not the brand, just the 5-HTP."
