5HTP for sleep?


[Fo...]

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried 5HTP? My OB says it should help with seratonin levels and with sleep. I’m always nervous to try something new, but I’m suffering greatly. Any insight is much appreciated:)

Thanks!

I pretty much tried every known herbal, OTC and supplement for sleep that was available at the time.  Nothing seemed to work during the thick of my WD. 

 

But you may want to give them a try, maybe they'll work for you?  You've got nothing to lose unless they jack up your symptoms or mess with our sleep!

Sorry based on your signature may I ask should I try to get in some sleep in daytime or tough it out till evening/night to sleep?

These herbal supplements are good after you have come off a drug like a benzo or anti psycho but still getting withdrawal sleep problems. They can't do any harm.

 

If you can do regular exercise it can help you sleep too, even just a bit of yoga at home.
