Hey @puellavulnerata you're one of the few people I know that's also having success with 5-htp. Mind if I ask you a question or two?
@puellavulnerata For depression.
I'm back dialing in my dosage again and was looking for some advice there.
Started at ~200mg a day split across two doses. I've been waiting about 5 days then bumping it up by ~50mg a day. I'm not really sure if I'm being impatient or too patient on the wait time there. I certainly remember there being a point where more just did nothing, trying to find that point.
@knarphie Don't worry too much about the weird; serotonergic neurons have autosynapses to regulate activity level, and the receptor densities post-synaptically are also feedback controlled. but with a time lag. When I first switched to 800 mg it was mildly psychedelic for me; that went away after about three days.
@puellavulnerata Thanks for reminding me about pushing through the weird. Went nicely and I think I've ended up where I need to be.
