This is Kitt. Although I believe that 5-HTP may have positive benefits, the articles I read provided too little detail to convince me that they are not just trying to sell the herb. I agree with the others on this one. I would talk with your PCP. I hope this helps you in some small way.Take care,

I have removed the link as members can google the topic and find this site if they are interested.
I am not insinuating you were advertising but the site does promote the selling of it's own product.
Thank you in advance for your understanding. If youhave any questions please email me.

That would be me?????? Im just a guy suffering like everyone else. I thought some members might find the papers from the "National Library of Medicine" helpful. Its much easier on the reader and myself to post a link rather that have them google each study themselves.
