A ridiculous tropical shirt; every year.
So basically what we're all saying is that its effectiveness is as dubious as all the other herbal shite you can buy in Holland & Barretts5-htp really isn't that 'strong'. It's just the precursor to seratonin. The *theory* is that one converts to the next, but the evidence for it working beyond placebo is woolly, though AFAIK that's still as well as most anti-depressants. If you believe it's going to work, it should work fairly quickly.
Tbh the stuff I get off Amazon is 200mg per capsule and does have a noticeable effect, my mate noticed it too when he tried some. The Holland & Barratt stuff is usually only 50mg so might notice it. It's also fairly cheap for 120 capsules.So basically what we're all saying is that its effectiveness is as dubious as all the other herbal shite you can buy in Holland & Barretts
Still might give it a go
Remembered this being recommended on here a few years ago so thought I would share:From what I gather 5htp helps protect you from running out of serotonin, which can cause damage as dopamine starts to get pushed into places where only serotonin is supposed to go.
A crappy analogy would be a washing machine, mdma is the spin cycle and water in the clothes serotonin. If keep using md its like spinning the clothes more and more to get the remaining water out, but eventually you start damaging the clothes as all the water has been rung out.
Which is why if it stops working you're supposed to stop taking it.
Not that I'm condoning substance use, but good got people to be informed of the risks and mitigate them where possible.
Personally I use 5htp on and off in winter as it does help with SAD (seasonal affective disorder, basically short days long dark nights)
Edit: dunno if lining to above is ok on forums? If not please feel free to edit the post
With regards to Xanax and Valium are you able to travel with these as they are not illegal drugs?im bringing 10 500ml xanax + 5 zimos.aka zimovane for.sleep with the zimo you could be buzzing like a fridge one minute, take 1 zimo and your knocked out with in ten.minutes. sleeping like a baby..
Yeah for this reason I think I'll just take the Valium, if anything does happen having them in a blister you'll be able to talk your way out of it!I always try and have a blister pack. I'd be nervous otherwise.
How does Xanax and Zimo compare to Valium for comedowns then? I've never had them
