This product is high-quality and really works for reducing anxiety, improving sleep and regulating emotions. Note that it won't make your mood swings or anxiety go away, but it will help take the edge off so you can rationalise them or cope better. I didn't experience any side effects. I started with one pill a day (AM, with breakfast) and after a week I increased to 2 (breakfast & lunch). I'm still on 2 pills a day and find that dose is enough.

This 5-HTP product has been extremely helpful for me. I have been taking 1 capsule every morning and by around day 2-3 I noticed I had a much more stable mood. After about a week of usage I also noticed that I responded much better to stressful and fearful situations that would have otherwise triggered my anxiety. My friends and family have also noticed me being relatively happier throughout the day. Also - vitamin b6 is crucially needed in the brain for creating serotonin on a day-day basis, so for that reason I am glad they included b6 in the capsules. Price is reasonable and the quality is great.
