Hi I was recommended 5-HTP in the healtth shop today to help with the low feeling, tearfullness, anxiety, lack of sleep general rubbbish feeling I have! Has anyone else tried thhem? I have search net and cannot find many reviews.
Thanks.
Dont want to visit GP yet as I am hoping to stay on top of mood, but yesterday was horrible and I haven't really stopped crying since monday! My kids are 7 and 10 so its not PND.

try St johnswort instead if you're not on the pill

Not just the pill to watch out for madmouse, it interacts with loads of other prescribed medications too. Always check with your pharmacist if on any other meds
