I tried to suppliment with 5 HTP inthe doze recommended on the bottle (3 pills a day), but it looks like it has valerian, and the only effect after about 2 weeks of use I am getting is sleepiness and fatigue in the afternoon (so, vlerian is working like it always did). It had no effect on my wanting to eat fruit. I was taking it in hopes that it would stop sweet falvors cravings. So, is it a wrong suppliment for this purpose, or do you take less, does it start curbing sweet craving after a longer time period??? Right now, my plan is to just finish off the bottle if I can, and not buy it again.
