I don't even know where to begin with this review but I will try.... I have been on at least 8 different antidepressants in my life, various antipsychotics, anxiety medication, sleeping medication..the list goes on and on...I have tried different brands of 5HTP that were not time released like this one is...Nothing seemed to work to cure my depression of 12 years.. that is until I stumbled upon this time released form of 5htp from Natrol...From the first day I took it.. I began to feel amazing..at first I was worried that it might just be a placebo effect, but it has been about 2 months now and still feel great on a daily basis. I went as far as to email Natrol personally and thank them for this wonderful supplement that has changed my entire life. I think the key is the 15 hour time release "structure" of the pill that makes it last all day. I personally take 200mg in the morning with amazing results... I will continue to take this for the rest of my life... no joke.. Thank you Iherb and Natrol for putting a smile on my face :)

I had been using Now's 5-htp 100mg once daily at night for years. It helped with my depression, anxiety, food cravings, and stopped my migraine headaches. I tried Natrol's Time Released 5-htp for several weeks last month and developed daily nausea and started to feel down/sad again. Once I switched back to Now's 5-htp, the nausea stopped and my feelings improved.

I couldn't sleep for 3,4 hours at night. I stopped to take it after 3 days. I think I was more happy on the first day but after that just tired.

I couldn't sleep at all because it gave me restless legs syndrome. It was really too much in terms of side effects. I dropped it after 2 days. It was my first time trying 5-HTP, I can't compare it to other brands.

Pros: It is doing what it is supposed to be - it is making me calm and with no worries, day goes by perfect. Cons" terrible stomach ache plus heartburn. I am sensitive to 5htp. I thought this one having delayed release will make a difference. After one pill it took me 3 days of Ulcetrol and Glutamine to fix my stomach back to normal. For some reason it is like drinking acid; I don't want to take another pill, but if I will be desperate I will try taking it with Losec.
