Re: Guy in another forum's advice for dealing with OCD

5-HTP sent me manic for several years.

It's the precursor to serotonin and you have to take this as pure serotonin is destroyed in the gut. Taking it this way means it can pass the blood brain barrier, I believe. The reason drug companies don't sell it as such is because it's a naturally occurring substance so there's no patent to be had. It is really powerful imo so use with caution.
