tryptophan 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.

Review by Anonymous:

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.
