I believe I have a topic from long ago about my personal benefits from tryptophan. I was wanting to try a regimen of tryptophan again but all I could find was 5-htp in the stores around my area.

Since I've been using 5-htp, the effects seem to be similar when taken before sleeping. Noticeable improvement on my mood, quality of sleep, and more intense dreams follow(although I believe the impact on my mood is much greater with tryptophan).

What I've been noticing again lately(since its almost been a few years since I've taken tryptophan) is the pronounced euphoria from drinking alcohol in addition to taking both tryptophan or 5-htp regularly. Does anybody have any insight as to why this happens?
