- Dietary Supplement
Supplies L-5-Hydroxy-Tryptophan (5-HTP), the precursor to serotonin, a key neurotransmitter. Caution: Very high doses of 5-HTP can be metabolized peripherally and can trigger excess serotonin formation. 5-HTP is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women and should be avoided by those with any form of cardiovascular disease. 5-HTP should not be used by those taking serotonin 5-HTP or receptor agonists (naratriptan, sumatriptan, zolmitriptan).

I live in Michigan and put up with gray and cold winters. Every winter I get a slight seasonal depression. My endocrinologist puts me on 5-HTP in the winter, and it really helps my symptoms. I sleep well at night and feel pretty balanced during the day. I always have some in my drawer and take it before bedtime.
