Re: New member needs help with supplements!!

My experience with GABA has been good for helping me sleep. Tryptophan is also reported to help raise serotonin levels and help with sleep and anxiety. 5 HTP made me very sick, vomiting, etc, so if you try it so with a low dose at bedtime, like 25 mg at bedtime. ST John's Wort is reported to help with depression also. My suggestion would be to pick one, and start it by itself until you see how you feel with it. After a few days, start another (add it, don't stop the first) and see if you feel a difference in 10 days. Then add a third. That was if you have reaction to any, you'll know which it was. Sometimes the combinations on supplements work better than just one by itself. I take 500mg GABA currently plus inositol 500mg to counteract elevated histadine that makes me anxious and unable to sleep.
