1 of 5 people found the following review helpfulMarch 11, 2010Reviewer: Luke in Oklahoma* Well, this is supposed to be a sleep aid, antidepressant and mild anti-hunger product. So far, it has done none of the above. I take melatonin to sleep every night and tried the 5-HTP last night. I stayed awake for hours, tossing and turning trying to get to sleep. About 1am, I gave up and took the melatonin and fell asleep in 15 minutes. Today, I took the 5-HTP 2 hours before lunch and felt no loss of hunger or appetite. I don't know what to think about it at this point. I cannot speak of how well it does with anti-depressing, I'm not depressed.This review is specific to 5-HTP, 100 mg
