Hi all, long time lurker here, decided to join up finally
As someone who has been suffering with depression for just over 2 years now, I have taken an interest in natural anti-depressants in a bid to stop my dependence (or "crutch", rather) on fluoxetine (aka Prozac).
I have seen references to Gingko Biloba and St Johns Wort among others, but having tried to utilise them in place of fluoxetine had rather unpleasant results.
Recently, I've seen a few internet articles claiming that 5-HTP to be one of the most potent naturally occurring ant-depressants yet.
Has anybody had any experience with 5-HTP, ranging from mood swings to full-blown bipolar?
