200-300 mg acute dosage- mood elevation (temporary), kills appetite
600 mg and up acute dosage- headaches, can make you pretty sick to your stomach- but you can't take it with food, or it will not work as well- you can try it, but you might feel a little ill......
100-200 mg chronically every 3 days is the best for mood elevation
taking 5-HTP every day will put you in la-la land- make you real spacey.....

Agreed. Been taking 300mg every day and started feelin spaced out. Plus I was waking up with wicked stomach aches...Going to take 100mg twice a day instead of 300mg all at once at night now...

As a precursor to serotonin, you want to keep levels VERY slightly elevated to induce relaxation and a minor sense of well-being. More than that might sap your motivation and take away any "edge" you might have, dulling the senses and washing your perception into a slight haze.
Personally, I am not a fan of jacked up serotonin levels at all.

I personally prefer 500mg L-Tryptophan with my morning cup of coffee if I am not feeling very chipper in the A.M. Tryptophan is another alternative you could look into. 1g -1.5g with a minute amount of Melatonin ( I nibble a small amount of a 3mcg tab and hold it under the tongue) before bed has done wonders for my sleep quality/duration. Just wanted to toss that out there.
