5-HTP

Monday, January 25, 2010

I was wondering if anyone knows anything about 5-HTP. When taken it converts into serotonin in your brain. It is used for mild deppression, weight loss, anxiety and insomnia.

I wanted to hear from people that may be taking it or know someone who has taken it. Curious about any side effects and dosage.

Thank you

    Wikipedia has some info on it. There's a book available on Amazon - not sure if the library has it. The library WILL look up to see if there is any info in their most recent copy of the "Drug Handbook". I think you can call or email. Email takes awhile, calls they handle as they come in. Or, you can go to the library and see what they might have on it. The reference desk will help you.
    Couldn't really find much online that wasn't sales for a chinese herb. Says benefits but doesn't list side effects.
    Hope that helps!
