Reviews for Tryptophan
For Insomnia: "This seems to make me feel sleepy, and sleep better than the meds that the doctors have tried. I also like that I don't wake up feeling dopey and have that "hung over" feeling all day long that you get from some prescription meds."

For Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder: "Nothing, and I mean nothing (and I have tried everything) has helped my PMDD like L-Tryptophan has. My symptoms are now negligible with just one 500mg tablet plus a vitamin B supplement, once or at most twice a day."

For Insomnia: "I am a survivor of brain cancer and now have a memory deficit as a result. My Neurologist suggested I take 100mgs of L-Tryptophan daily to increase the production of serotonin. This he felt would assist with memory function. Long story short, 2 years later, I realize that I have benefited from the side effect of sleepiness. I take my 1000 mg before I go to bed and I sleep like a log."

For : "I suffered through a year of acute insomnia triggered by strange noises coming from my sinus, probably some kind of twisted blood vessel although my ENT could never say for sure and I didn't want a CT scan. My MD had me on Zopiclone which is OK for short term but just garbage as far as long term use: it interferes with REM sleep, develops resistance and is hell to come off of with rebound insomnia and mood shifts, mostly dark. My MD was reluctant but I talked him into letting me try tryptohan. Ahh, sleeeep! Quality sleep too. Natural sleep. No side effects except the occasional morning headache and groggies that would soon disappear. No other side effects. No buidling up resistance over long term use. To me its been a sanity saver."

For Insomnia: "L-Tryptophan has worked wonders for my insomnia, PMS, anxiety and depression. No side effects, although the bottle sayS take 3 capsules, I ONLY take 1 at night and wake up feeling great."
