Hi-
I take Lyrica for my fibro and was taking Elavil (only 5mg's) to help me sleep but it stopped working. I realize I probably should have raised up my dosage of it as my dr. advised but I really didnt like the way it was making me feel. Every am I was waking up feeling like a hangover and I hate feeling like that when I wake up. I just stopped taking it and decided to try 5HTP instead. Has anyone tried this? Please advise. Thanks!

Hello tlp,
I find 5HTP helpful with both sleep & mood. If you decide to try it & may be taking other meds or supplements, please look into any possible interaction issues.

Keep us posted.
