This autumn was the first time in over 15 years that
I have gone completely without my yearly autumn clusters (which usually go for four to five weeks).
After reading about a possible seratonin connection over the internet, I researched a natural version of Prozac--L-5-hydroxytryptophan (nicknamed 5-HTP).
I have always felt that the waning daylight of autumn
was somehow involved, along with the general stresses of the holiday season.
I began taking 5-HTP twice a day since mid September, since natural products take longer to take effect.
So far so good--just a couple of very minor headaches.
