This product is my favourite brand of 5HTP. After trying the 100mg capsules a few times a day, I find the 200mg tablets to be much more economical, and less hassle, as I only take it in the morning. Like most brands of 5HTP I could see how side effects do happen, as I've had stomach issues with a couple brands -- as the previous post mentions.
