Questions and Answers
Is 5HTP good for Fribromyalgia?
It may or may not. There are several approaches in the treatment of fibromyalgia and it's usually a combo of those that work the best.
5-htp (5-hydroxytryptophan) is the breakdown product of tryptophan, an essential amino acid present in most protein foods. It is a precursor to serotonin (5-HT), so people with a serotonin deficiency, or too-rapid uptake of serotonin can probably benefit from 5-htp. It's used for sleep in place of the psychoactive drugs so commonly prescribed for people with fibromyalgia. It has the delightful side effect of reducing carbohydrate cravings.
If it helps you, great. If it doesn't find a doctor who understands fms and will help you.
Has anyone used 5-htp who would like to tell me about their experience with it? What did you use it for? Was it effective? Any side effects (good or bad)?
Yes, I've used and do use the 5-htp to help me cope with problems even though I didn't start taking it because of that. What I started it for was to give me help with my sleep pattern since I was coming off of night shift work. But, I didn't start taking 5-htp, it was Melatonin. The change I was making to the daytime didn't take too long with Melatonin and I found that 5-htp is the precursor to Melatonin and continuing with Melatonin will turn your inner clock back too far and then you'll do the opposite of what you want. But, 5-htp is also the precursor to Serotonin which controls the emotions. 5-htp is a comercial product with the same chemical compounds as 5-HT in the body, but neither one is produced in the body. Side effects? I haven't had any that I notice, but maybe a touch of irritability because of too much. That's why I don't do it all the time.
Hi. I was wondering if taking one dose of 200mg of 5-HTP once a day about an hour before bed is too much? I have read that 200mg is a high dose, but the only bottle I could find was 200mg capsules?
5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is a chemical by-product of the protein building block L-tryptophan. It is also produced commercially from the seeds of an African plant (Griffonia simplicifolia).
Don’t use 5-HTP until more is known. 5-HTP might be UNSAFE. Some people who have taken it have come down with eosinophilia-myalgia syndrome (EMS), a serious condition involving extreme muscle tenderness (myalgia) and blood abnormalities (eosinophilia). Some people think the EMS might be caused by an accidental ingredient (contaminant) in some 5-HTP products. But there is not enough scientific evidence to know if EMS is caused by 5-HTP, a contaminant, or some other factor. Until more is known, avoid taking 5-HTP.
