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).
