An author who covers Fibromyalgia has done intensive research on 5-HTP and has a page with information and the best quality/low price sites she's located for purchasing it. Many people with FMS have found it beneficial for restoring natural sleep as well. Most of her sources are mail order.
Her page is at:
I've tried it now and then myself but am not sure I noticed any difference. I already take so many other medications that tend to put me to sleep--my goal was to try to achieve some normal sleep pattern as I've been sleeping on and off around the clock. (Those who happen to have FMS can contact me for more information, I have it and have sites on my Chronic pain forum pages below as well as my own library of helpful information.) Also, for the Headache email list at Sam Houston State University please contact me--we sure could use a few more members to do some posting! We have over a hundred people but things are silent right now--much helpful information from great people if someone will just come and ask for help!! (Non-profit, no spammers and not a replacement for the Cluster site at all!)
Hope this helps,
