OK I know several of you take 5-HTP. I picked up some from GNC, 200 mg timed release. I started taking it and really felt it helped my moods tremendously. The problem though is that it makes me sleepy about 6 hours in. I can't be sleepy during the day, so I can work. I can't cut in half because its timed release. So I stopped it yesterday and today and now I'm feeling the slight depression back. I refuse to take any antidepressant because have in past and it makes me gain weight, and i didn't like how I felt, sort of disconnected. So tonight i plan to take it around 8pm and see if that helps.
If anyone has any experiences with 5-HTP please tell me, I know it works. How do you take it?
