I'm coping ok with most of the menopause symptoms but just struggling with sleep or staying asleep. On average wake at 1am, 3 am and then 5 if I'm lucky I can get back to sleep. I'm not feeling particularly sleep deprived during the day just tired. Has anyone tried 5-htp to help with sleep. I get very anxious about sleep and occasionally suffer insomnia if I'm not in my bed and routine. Im going on holiday soon and although am not a nervous flyer I really struggle to sleep the night before and the first couple of nights away which ruins the start of the holiday. I would like to hear anyone's experience of 5-htp both good or bad. Thanks
