    5-htp any good?


    Since L-trypophan is available only by prescription (and unfortunately costs more), I was wondering of 5HTP is any good for people who have taken it.

    Or should I just chug a glass of milk?

    Some people like it, I tried it a few times and it gave me a deeper sleep, but some really nasty nightmares. I used the NOW brand 3-5 capsules about 1hr.-1/2hr before bed.

    The combo of melatonin and ZMA seemed to work just as well without the nightmares. But hey, what ever works.

    At this point, I wouldn't mind nightmares if I can get into a very deep sleep.

    Melatonin is supposed to be not a good sup for SAD because the sleep-wake cycle is already messed up and might make it worse.

    I've used it.....not great for sleeping per say, it will just relax you a bit (which might translate to sleep for some) but for my money melatonin is what works.

    Can you get a script for Ambien?
    Ambien is awesome!
