I have been taking 5htp regularly to combat depression with great results. I used to lay in bed all day, just not wanting to wake up. There were times in my life where I woke up and just wanted to die. I didn't realize how imbalanced I was until I started taking this stuff. I attribute this to a tremendous amount of stress, poor diet, and alcohol consumption. This is a life changer for me. I recently heard about the benefits of 5htp and l-tyrosine for mood enhancement purposes and started adding that to my daily regimen. Let me tell you, I feel great.

I haven't felt this good since I was a child. Before all my stress started, and I fell into years of low emotion and sick depression. I picked up a guitar today, and hadn't felt that magic since I was thirteen years old. It was a well needed breath of fresh air.

At times, in higher doses, I feel like I am coming up on shrooms or ex, but it is much more manageable, very calm, and in total control. I can say though since I started the l-tyrosine, my driving has tended to get erratic at times because I notice an increased excitement

. This is absolutely not under the influence of alcohol though, and I just wanted to clarify that before I get to my combo experience. The l-tyrosine did make me more excitable and a tad more aggressive, which contributes more to my already instinctive Nascar driving mentality.

I took 300 mg of 5htp today upon waking, along with 1500 mg of l-tyrosine. Thru out the day I felt pretty good. I dont know about other people, but for me, the 5htp seems to peak about 10hrs later after taking it. I have read conflicting reports about taking 5htp with alcohol. Some said they took it then drank like an hr later and had seizures. I didnt want to chance it, so I always leave at least a 5hr gap between 5htp dosage and alcohol consumption.

So about 10 hrs later, I start drinking. Over the course of 5 hrs, I consumed 8 shots of 35% alcohol Fireball whiskey, and 2 24 oz Natural Light beers. I am writing this right now. I feel good. I went outside for a while about an hour ago, talked to God, appreciated the trees in my neighborhood, put together office furniture, and got some insight on life. Keep in mind I am 220lbs too.
