Hi, i'd like to add that a lot of you are saying you have had negative side effects of 5HTP and a lot of you are saying you are taking B6 as well. I have done many hours of research and can cnclude the following from a doctor - B6 is required in order to convert the 5HTP to Serotonin, but the B6 must be taken many hours before the 5HTP otherwise it will convert in the liver rather than the brain, if this happens it can be very dangerous to the body over a long period of time and will not actually produce any serotonin. Also you must take no more than 10mg of B6 at least 7 hours before the 5HTP and any doses over 100mg of 5HTP will cause side effects. Some bottles of 5HTP on the market actually have the B6 and 5HTP mixed together in the pill and apparently this is because there has not been many tests done on 5HTP as it is still a new homeopathic remedy.
