has anyone else tried this and if you how did you get on?

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/5-Hydroxytryptophan

I have bought some patches and put one on for the first time yesterday. It may be a coincidence of course, but I feel brighter and had a good nights sleep for the first time in ages.

I saw someone had recommended them on another post a while ago and thought I had nothing to lose (apart from a tenner!) by giving them a go. Id be really interested to hear of other peoples experiences with using it.
