This is an over-the-counter supplement. My neighbour recently suggested I try it. I can recommend it to anybody struggling with apathy and lack of energy.
I had a fist-sized meningioma removed in 1997. As it turned out, I'd picked up FRONTAL LOBE /DYSEXECUTIVE SYNDROME somewhere along the line.
It's affected my life in several ways. I find it hard to organise myself.....keep control of my life and make the soundest decisions.......have memory problems, including "blanks" when I have no recall of quite advanced conversations......can't make the sort of emotional connections I used to make.......and those aspects of the syndrome continue.
However, two other aspects of the condition seem to have been made better by 5-HTP.
First, for years I've found it really hard to get out of bed in the morning. I haven't been able to see the point. Even though I've slept well, as often or not I'd stretch, yawn, and turn over to shut my eyes.
Second, even when I got up, I found it very difficult to get anything done. I couldn't see the point. My GP and I decided this was CBA. Can't Be A....
After three days of 5-HTP, I started to feel loads better. I wake up and want to get up. I'm more active, I'm getting things done.
Here's hoping this ain't a false restart!
Has anyone else tried this stuff?
