      I suffered from insomnia for years. Melatonin didn't work unless I took like 6 capsules. I decided to use both melatonin and 5 HTP by NOW and I experienced what is was like to finally get a restful sleep. I took one star off because i'm beginning to feel like I need to try a higher mg, it's not working like it once did.
      I would recommend this item to a friend.

      This 50 mg dose is great if you're trying it for the first time, since 100mg can be too much for some people. I had taken B6 and hour before taking 5-HTP by NOW Foods and experienced some intestinal upset, and without B6 I did not. Too early yet to say whether it affects dreams or not for me. Price and dose is good though, so I do recommend.

      Pros

      Dosage and price.

      Cons

      I would recommend this item to a friend.

      Taking 5-HTP alone I notice little. With a very small dose of melatonin I can wake up feeling fantastic the next day. Unfortunately for me melatonin can make me restless and gives me breathing problems if I take it for more than a day or two every month.

      Pros

      Supposed to replenish serotonin. I think taken with melatonin in individuals who can tolerate melatonin should give it a shot.

      Cons

      I don't notice an effect taken on its own.
