4 Point Comments - It Helped Me a Bit

Seems to help a bit if I take a lot of it. Although it is quite expensive.

Initially, it had a distinct energizing effect, with an immediate improvement in mood and ability to form thoughts. That was not from thinking differently, it was an effect of the substance. It relieved brain fog for several hours. If taken late in the afternoon it significantly interfered with sleep.

After about 2 weeks, it stops working for me and must be discontinued for a while. Recently it seems to have a milder effect; I use 200mg tablets, one or, ideally, two per day about 5 hours apart.
I would give this a 4/5 rating: When it works, it can be quite useful, though the amount of the effect varies and diminishes after the initial boost. Taking more than your system wants may lead to jittery, useless energy.

Didn't induce serotonin syndrome (which 5-HTP did, for me), but I felt odd and weirdly uncomfortable on it.

I think it increased excitotoxicity symptoms.

Terrible mood fluctuations toward despair and crying incessantly with untoward amounts of anxiety. Not consistent at all throughout the day. Tried various dosing guidelines and all felt bad to me.
