5-HTP
    #3579255 - 01/04/05 02:02 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

hey all,

ive started taking this "mood enhancer" 3 days ago to increase seritonin levels and lower anxiety.

so far i have to say that i've felt "happier" and more social over the past 2 days than i have i a while.

anyone else take 5-htp?

what are your opinions of it?

I bought a bottle for an upcoming roll I'm doing, but I haven't started taking any yet. I think I'll start tomorrow and then reply to this thread with something more useful in a few days.

I'd like to know more information too. Are there any "side effects" from taking it? Potential for abuse? etc

I recommend not taking more than 300mg.. there's never any need to. If you take too much you can develope serotonin syndrome.. read up on google.

Anyway, I first started taking 5-HTP for insomnia when I found it actually helped me dream after not dreaming for a long time. My recommendation: take 100mg of 5-HTP and ~25mg vitamin b-6 if you want to enhance the dreaming experience.

I have no experience with this for depression but it is a precursor to serotonin which is needed to balance mood, appetite and sleep.

5-htp info

Well, ive taken this supplement for 5 straight days, dosage level = 150 mg (100 mg in the morning 50mg before bed.)

overall i do feel like im in a much better mood, decreases in anxiety and paranoia.
im much less prone to mood swings too.

however, after researching more i realized taht i should start at a lower dose and work my way up to the higher doses i have been currently taking.

side effects for me have included some constipation and (at least for the first 3 days) some mild erectial dysfunction-- which is fine with me as i could stand to take a break from jerking off so much  :smirk:

these side effects may have occured becuase i started with a higher than reccomended dose.

for me I actually noticed increased sleepiness.  I felt much more tired all the time, and didn't notice any mood changes...

I find it increases socialness and positive feelings and raises energy levels alot... when your in an energetic setting you can just keep on going - same goes with conversation.

However, i find these peak effects taper off after a couple weeks of daily ingestions.. Keep the magic?

I took one last night and I had the best most refreshing sleep in a very very long time. And my mood is up a lot today.

Never tried 5-HTP, but can understand boosting seratonin levels to aid with mood elevation... I have been diagnosed as having the lowest levels of seratonin that my local V.A. had ever seen. They put me on Zoloft, which worked a bit, but made me sota ambivalent about everything, plus it really screws with ability to have sex. In the end, I started toking Salvia.. Works great to gkeep depression at bay....... senorsal

Griffonia simplicifolia seed extract is very high in 5-HTP,
Id like to grow this plant in the future, i've heard of seed viability issues though.

Here's some info on it's solubility for those who are interested.

---
Merck 11th Edition (entry 4784 p.771)
Solubility for 5-Hydroxy-Tryptophan as follows:

Water at 5 degC =1g/ 100ml
in boiling water =5.5g/ 100ml

in 50% boiling ethanol 2.5g/100ml
---

So we can assume that 100g of Griffonia simplicifolia seeds (1-10% 5-HTP) is best finely ground and extracted in 100ml-200ml* of boiling water and should yield from 1g-10g of 5-HTP (10-100x 100mg doses).

*will probably need a greater volume of water to cover the ground seeds

yeah, you can find the stuff at any local pharmacy or vitamin shop...but the selection will be vry small (if you even have a choice between brands)
a quick internet search will give you a variaty of prices and brands to choose from

i pay $10 for 45 pills (50mg each) from the local jewel osco drugstore. i think that price is a little steep (reccomendd daily dosage is 100mg) when compared to some deals ive seen on the internet.

I took 5-HTP for a couple of weeks, just to see what it would do. In the end I stopped taking it because it made me spacey and I could not focus on music, philosophy, and similar things.
