I saw this mentioned on another board. Has anyone tried it? I'm going to mention it to DH, but he has so many other health problems, I don't know if it's a good idea for him. There seem to be some concerns about it.

I haven't tried 5-HTP but used to use tryptophan back before they banned it and found it worked very well with no side effects. One thing the article did not mention is that the problems with contamination did NOT affect all users who got bad batches - there is a genetic suceptibility element involved also. And just to put the risks into proper perspective let's not forget the much greater number of folks who get side effects like suicide from the alternatives that *are* still on the market (this is a classic problem for Valium).
