I took 5-HTP for a number of months. I wasn't in a cluster but I wanted to see if there were any side effects. A very minor tranquilizing effect but that's it. I talked with another person who thoght taking it may have been holding off the cluster that was due but she wasn't sure if it just hadn't shown up or if the 5-HTP was helping.

I talked with a Dr. at a site that sells the stuff (www.5htpdirect I think). He claimed that it had helped migraines so it should benifit CH too. I didn't push the point with him and he sells the stuff so he's sure not gonna bad mouth it.

For me the jury is still out. I'm not sure if it does anything or if it's a waste of money. It didn't make me smart or happy or skinny which are some of the other claims it made about it.
