Has anyone tried 5-HTP?
I’ve been using it for a couple of months now. I get it at Costco. Supposedly it is for “calming” but I haven’t noticed any of that. I have noticed that if I have early symptoms of an impending migraine, 5-HTP will make it go away…for about 3-4 hours. I end up taking 4-6 a day which is kind of annoying (especially at night). I don’t take it if I don’t feel a migraine coming on.
It has allowed me to avoid rebounds without medication, and put more days in between migraines. I generally don’t respond to mild medication so anything that helps at all is pretty great.
