I am experimenting with 5HTP.  I took 20mg last night and another 20mg this afternoon aiming at a better sleep tonight and a better mood. 

Heard that 5HTP is against sex drive and sensation. 

I found this link with feedbacks from users:

I used it for a time. 100mg, morning and night. I didn't find that it helped. If anything, it further turned down sensation and libido. I added 5-HTP to the Drugs and Supplements poll.

5HTP helps me sleep better after taking low dose for a few days (2 times a day, 10-20 mg each).  I will stop taking it as it seems to have reduced my sensation at sex. 

(GABA used to give me a good sleep but recently I have had headaches in the morning if i took it at bed time).
