well my link got removed.
---------------------
is NATROL a good brand.
or is there a better one.
according to the Natrol box it is 50mg caplsules, 45 total for 11.79
it alos says to only take 1 per day with a meal
------------------------
also there is All Nature is that a good brand
it is 100mg caplsules, 100 total for 14.95
it also says, take two capsules daily
-----------------
i also found Doctor's Best
100mg Capsule, 60 total, retal price 26.99, sale 9.95
----------------------
also i read that some might not have 100% 5-htp, they might have 50%, so a 100mg pill will only give to 50mg. if that is true what brand does not do that.
---------------------------
any ideas, i want to get a good brand

I don't think the brand matters. I'm taking Natrol.

The LDs keep coming. I love it.

How many have you had since starting taking 5HTP?
And have they been long or vivid? Or more than usual.

And how about your dream recall? And have you done any techniques on top or..

Sorry for the questions.. just intrigued ^^

ok i bought Jarrow formuals 5-htp 100mg. 60 caps. reg $21.99. i found a site that had it for on sale for $15.99 and i found a $5 off coupon on the internet for the site. all in total it was $12.98 with shipping.

the bottal says take 1 capsual per day. i assume it is still safe to take like 2 or 3?

I found SAM-e at a chemist in Australia, does anyone know if it is as good as 5-HTP? I would rather buy something from here than order over the internet if I can help it...

I've had maybe 3-5 LDs since starting it not too long ago. Before that I had only like 12 LDs for an entire year. It broke a long dry spell and has been consistently giving me much longer and more vivid dreams. More dreams than usual as well.

Dream recall has been improved as well. No techniques.

I just started taking 5-HTP since yesterday as I found it in a health food store..

It's a 50mg tablet..
No particular results after the first night, but I'm quite hopeful.

Just wondering, would a Walgreens carry something like this? I don't have a drug store very close to me. . Definatly going to give this a go though.
