It's odd.. 5-HTP seems to have suppressed my dreaming (REM dreams?) somehow..
I think tonight I'll give it a break and try a wake up method instead..

I tend to notice it most when I wake up in the morning but go back to sleep. That's when the dreams are just mind blowing.

I didn't take 5-HTP this night. Instead, as a kind of break, I did a whey protein and green tea mix, took that when I woke up after 3 hours at night. I got a very vivid dream afterwards but no lucidity.
Still it's positive.

Every time I take 5-htp my dream recall drops down to zero.. I wonder..
Seems like 5-htp isn't helping me..

It's interesting though how dream lizard posted his dream recall went up.. For me it's the opposite with 5-htp..

Other factors at work besides the 5-HTP. Maybe Lizard had other things in him at the moment and HTP's effect combined with the others. When things like that happen they happen on scales of doubling each other. No success with it for me at moment though.

That's quite possible. Another factor could be what I eat, if I don't eat bread that day it could reduce the b6 in my body I suspect.. (unless I take a supplement for that)

Health food store.

At the pharmacy the pharmacy told me 'never heard of the stuff get me a bottle to see'.. lol

I stopped it and first had a noisy WILD (failed to remember I was dreaming though), then the next day I had a lucid dream... then forgot afterwards so I didn't write it down...

read this thread, and I am wondering about something. For those of you who have used this product for an extended period of time, do you worry about dependence? I saw where somebody said when they quit taking it their dreams became less vivid and interesting. I would be interested in trying this out, but not at the cost of loosing my ability to recall dreams naturaly, without pharmacalogical assitance that is.

So has anybody used this for extended periods of time and then quit? If so, what was the result.
