Anyone take 5-htp regulary?
    #2660396 - 05/10/04 07:00 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

After using ectasy for the first time and reading all about it I discovered that 5-htp is converted into 5-ht, or serotonin. Does anyone use 5-htp on a regular basis? If so are there any positive effects? I do not intend to use it just so I can dose on E all the time, but just the thought of having a lot of serotonin building up all the time is nice, peace.

For most people it would be a waste to take it all the time. Your body has feedback mechanisms that will stabilize the production of neurotransmitters and the amounts released when the nerves are firing. I would take extra during the day before dosing on E in the evening (and possibly the day before). I would also take some before going to bed after rolling and some more upon awakening. I also wouldn't roll more frequently than once every two months.

I suspect that my brief use of it helped lead me towards a lifetime of mystical dream experiences. But yer mileage may vary.

A while ago I took it regularly before going to bed to help me sleep. And i always dreamed like a motherfucker! I hade intense and vivid dreams throughout the night, and i'd be kind of mentally exhausted when waking up. Not all that bad, just like after a long run, but for the brain, kinda.

Ive used 5-htp regularly for a month or two now and previously have used it for a longer period.

Im only able to take it at night now also, soon after taking it i almost always pass out.

The brand im takin currently also has valerian root(for relaxation) so that may have something to do with it.

I love taking it just for the fact that it gives me such crazy vivid dreams.

I have noticed feeling exhausted upon waking but that clears up within a half an hour leaving me feeling great :grin:

I load up on 5-htp, vitamins and what not for a couple days before rolling, it almost allways leads to a cleaner more positive experiance.

I take it once in awhile, not for E though. I did a coupoe years ago and it works wonders with E. Be careful though dude.

Dreams are one of my top 5 favorite things in life.  Are you saying there's something out there that I can take and it'll make my dreams even more vivid?  Tell me more. :jawdrop:

I take it daily, for the last couple of months.

Not noticed and increase in dreams, but think it may help with stable mood and general elevation in it.

Recovery time from various ht agonisists and moderators seems improved, as do negative effects.

5-HTP is an interesting compound and increases my chances of dreaming and the vividness of my dreams. It's supposed to help boost serotonin levels but don't rely on it to change your outlook on life, though it can be helpful in conjunction with a new way of life, if only initially.

I have been using 5 HTP off and on for the last 3 years. The main reason I have used it in the past was to help remove Marijuana tolerance. I smoke almost everyday so the 5 HTP can make a big diffrence sometimes on how high I get.

For the last year or so tho I have been taking 5 HTP daily. If you have problems with depression then I would recommend taking 5 HTP daily over something like Prozac. I can feel the 5 HTP kick in almost every time I take it, I feel great.

For dosage I usually take between 100-300mg a day but I do hear about people taking alot more. Some people take as much as 1500mg a day to lose weight/get lean.

Taking it on a regular basis along with other essential nutrients and exercise to aid in the conversion process into serotonin will make for one major improvement in mood stabilization and just an overall lift in consciousness and the feeling of well being.
