"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."
"I have been using 5HTP for about 5 years now. I take it before bedtime and it helps me relax and fall asleep faster. I will highly recommend it. The prices at Vitacost are excellent and will continue buying it from them."
"If this product is supposed to make you sleepy and sleep better then it's great. I got very sleepy. I might as well have taken cyclobenziprene. If you have trouble sleeping, this would be a good product."
"I starting using 50mg per night of 5-HTP to help me get ready for sleep. It had a great effect I felt like sleeping. Taken with dinner it worked great. Sleep better than I have in a long time. Also recommend L-Theanine with the 5-HTP Samstone"
