5-HTP Warning

In Response To: Emma, I don't think you (Darlene (A+)non-secretor)

My experience with 5-HTP was a disaster. Under my medical doctor's direction, I started taking a very low dose of 5-HTP once a day, with intentions of eventually increasing to twice a day. During the next 3 days I endured major negative reactions: shaking, inability to sleep, uncontrollable eating, sudden and major onset of depression, incoherent, uncontrollable crying for hours, etc.

I know 5-HTP is extremely popular, and generally perceived as a beneficial and harmless supplement. Apparently it isn't so, and I would urge caution in taking it or recommending it to anyone.
