    I have never taken, 5-htp, but I took CLA, for a while. I definitely lost a LOT of inches while I was taking them. I can't recall losing many pounds.

    Thanks for all the advise. I'm going to talk to my family doctor. its confusing because I want to lose 30 more pounds and when I'm off of phen, I figured these two otc drugs would be perfect.

    Hi there. 5 HTP does not boost the effect of phen....it is a craving pill that boosts your seratonin levels so you don't crave carbs or fats. CLA is a pill that eats fat. I'm on both and take them all when I'm eating. The 5HTP will make you nauseous if you don't eat it with food and it's not a good feeling so take it while eating!

    Rick is right. I checked with mine before I started taking it. I was surprised that he didn't know much about it at the time. My husband is a pharmacy tech so I had him print out the score cards for them and I brought them to the doctor when I asked. You might want to find some info on the internet to show him/her just in case... I hate it when they just give me a blank stare, and I'm like "Okay - you're the doctor... advise me!"

    5-HTP raises blood serotonin levels, and because of the risks associated with elevated levels it should only be taken under the advice of a medical professional,elevated blood serotonin levels are associated with cardiac valve failure and acute or chronic pulmonary hypertension,you might want to ask your doc before taking this.

    Most people take 5-HTP with dinner because by the time it's doing it's "thang" it's about bedtime anyway. Lately I've been taking it with my last dose of Phend, mostly because I have trouble remembering to take it later. CLA is typically taken with meals. The bottle label should have some directions on when to take it. I think both of mine say "with food."
