I've been taking the 5-HTP, kind of hit or miss, for the past 6 months. I'm not due for a cluster but I wanted to see if it had any other effects (sleep a little better and a slight tranq. effect).
I just got an e-mail from my friend Pat yesterday. She was taking it to ward off an impending cluster. Her cluster was later than normal but still hit (she said it was 4 weeks instead of the normal 5-6 weeks).
Another guy on the board tried it and got a couple of nights without a HA but then they came back. He was only taking 50mg/day. You can take up to 300mg/day.
I'm still curious about it so keep in touch.
