    Please could you tell me what daily amounts of Co-enzyme Q10 & of 5HTP you have found helpful please? What time of day do you take them? What benefits have you noticed? Thanks!

    Hi Smiffy ... I take CoQ10 in the morning or after lunch because it is supposed to energize you .. I have worked up to 100 mgs .. the 5HTP .. L-Trytophan is the parent of that drug .. night time for relaxation .. I was on 1500 mg but I am cutting back because of a change in meds for sleep and muscle twitching .. I take a B50 complex also and I think it really helps ..
    In any case .. I think you might find a difference eventually !
    Good Luck !

    I take 200 mgs. of 5-htp about 3 hrs. before bed. It does usually help me get to sleep faster; however, I still don't feel a bit rested, so I'll soon be starting Xyrem. I no longer take co-Q10 because after ayr. and a half on it, I felt no difference & Dr. said to d.c. it.

    I take 2 x 120mg CoQ10 a day. I buy it from States, Puritan's Pride as its so much cheaper than in UK.

    I dont know about 5HTP but I've asked you about it on other thread.

    love
