    5-HTP vs St. John's Wort

    Any misc experience with either of these supps? I'm considering 5-HTP because it has less drug interactions, and has sleep and BED benefits (both of which have been problematic lately), but it's rather expensive compared to SJW. I'm still withdrawing from a benzo ATM which is complicating things, but I'm clean of benzo's and alcohol for 15 days now (woohoo!)

    Anybody have experience with this?

    This was a triumph. I'm making a note here, "huge success!"
    It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.

    Im currently taking 5-HTP at 150mg before bed. In all honesty it doesn't help with making me fall asleep or preventing me from waking me up but I feel well rested.

    Supposedly it increase quality of sleep by allowing you to spend more time in Deep Sleep and REM thus reducing the amount of time you need to sleep to rest and repair.

    %htp has always worked better for me. Give L-theanine a shot too. Both at GNC.

    That's very helpful, I'll look into it. I work at a retail store and we charge like $22 for 45 (200mg though, time release). Suppose at that dosage I'd only need to take one a day, and that would be a month and a half supply, but still seems expensive.

    It depends what you want to take it for.

    If you want to sleep better, take 5-HTP. If you want to take something for depression, or anxiety, take St. John's Wort.

    I actually took 2 HTP pills every morning to help with depression and you see almost instant results. They do help you feel better, never took them before sleep so I wouldnt know if it helps a lot there
