Rated 3 out of 5 by Herbalmotives Good product, just not for me
I was very hopeful that this would work for me. I have never taken anything like this so did not know what to expect. I took it this morning at 8 and about 10-15 minutes later was throwing up. That continued until about 11:30 am. I'm not really sure why that happened, but I will not be taking it again. It seems like most people don't have that problem so it is likely just me. I am taking rhodiola rose root right now and it does a decent job.

I have been using this for a couple of months for mood balance and am satisfied with what I consider positive results. The price is very affordable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CurrentResident Surprisingly Effective!
This was the first time I had purchased 5-htp, and I was surprised at how much better I felt after I started using it. And this is still the best value I have seen for the dose and qty.

Great product, very effective, you may feel the full effect within few short hours, one pill a day in the right time is all I need (for a normal day).

Rated 1 out of 5 by Paturnia No effect
I took this for 2 weeks, in the hope to relieve sleepless nights, but it did not do anything, zero, zilch. Maybe it needs to be taken for a longer time or maybe it just does not work for everybody.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tamrakat I'm so HAPPY I found this product
Since I can't say what I'm using this for, I'll just say I'm so HAPPY i found 5-htp, and I'd be so very sad if I hadnt. Swanson has good quality and prices. I've been taking it for years and it's very effective.

I work very demanding shifts, and this helps keep me awake. I only take it when and how much I need it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by VanRamme Amplifies the effect of SJW
For me, it amplified the effects of St Johns Wort. It is not a miracle pill, but I think maximizes the potential of other supplements like SJW.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JennRN My favorite supplement
A great supplement and the one I wouldn't do without! Too bad I cant share the reasons I take this supplement because its better than anything else! I recommend you research this supplement for yourself and see the great things about it! I buy from Swanson because I trust their quality and you cant beat their prices!
Best of health to you!

This product has been amazing in regards to my mood being stabilized and my sleep. The price is excellent, and unlike medications, if I miss a night I don't suffer.
Definitely recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Prostateprob Good For Focus
I bought Swanson's Extra-Strength 5-HTP for stress relief. It is effective for that but I found that taking a lower dose(50mg) worked well for me and I felt more mentally focused taking it. Too high a dose made me too relaxed, sleepy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spinney2 Stress Buster
The salutary effects of 5-HTP are almost immediate, especially when needed during particularly stressful conditions such as meeting crushing deadlines at work. And the Swanson caps go down very easily without any stomach upset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Freddy Good for sleep
I like this. It mellows me out and prepares me for a good nights sleep. It is understood to be a precurser to seratonin which helps to prolong the deep stages of sleep. I lasts for about six hours, so the last two-three hours of sleep can have an REM rebound affect which seem to produce calm dreams in the early morning.
