Does anyone take 5-htp?

#1
Hi lovelies
Does anyone take 5-htp?
I sometimes feel very anxious and last year took Citalopram. I then decided to come off it and join SW to lose weight (2 of my demons). I have lost 3 stone and still on SW but have felt my symptoms coming back with a vengeance. Still sticking to SW which I am proud of (could have been so different).
I decided not to go back to GP but to do some research and try the healthy alternative, hence 5-htp. I started taking 2 tablets on Sunday. Since then I have felt better, sleeping better but most of all not hungry. Apparently it also helps with appetite!!!
Just wondered if anyone else has taken this?
I have also started eating lots of bananas which contain serotonin.

I personally didn't get on with it, my friend was exactly the same. Made us feel 'spaced out and hungover' yet I've heard others give it fab reports.

I tried something totally different for me last year and found it really really worked for me, again may not for others. I ordered bach flower remedies from Crystal herbs. You can have one mixed for you and its a good price. I felt better in myself within a couple of days so highly recommend it. Now I order regularly and had no more problems. Again its one of those things that work for some and not others.

I've never heard of it but am interested in reading more, it sounds like something I could benefit from. Where do you get it?

How do they come? Are they a tablet? Or capsule? Thanks :)

Sounds really positive. So glad they are working for you. Wish they had worked for me as sleep is something I often struggle with

They come as a capsule. I tend to not take in the evening as I dont like how I feel the next morning after sleeping, like I've slept too heavy.

In general I'm much calmer, dont get stressed as easy and def reduced appetite.
