Rated 3 out of 5 by from UPSET STOMACH! It works quite well, BUT.....BEWARE of taking this product on an EMPTY stomach! I do not normaly have a queasy stomach at all, therefore, I take issue when the directions say to do such. When taking this product, I must have ample solid food before taking it otherwise I get a sharp gut wrenching pain and end up throwing it up. I’m not saying this will happen to you… But “it’s better to be safe than sorry.”

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Colossal Fail I've tried taking 5-HTP on the suggestion of one of my clients and I dont feel that it does anything at all. I think it is purely a psychosomatic response. People want it to work and they've been told it will so they feel like it's working. Studies show it's a 73% fail.
