Hi All,

I'm wondering if anyone has tried 5-htp for anxiety. Seems like maybe it's better for depression and/or insomnia? I definitely have anxiety/fear/agitation and wouldn't want to aggravate it -- although I hear SSRIs can do that, too.

Here is a link to a previous thread re  5-htp:


I do not use this supplement.

Take care
