What about taking it while pregnant? I've experienced ppd with both of my first 2, and I'm experiencing mild depression now. I would like to head it off.

I'm on day3 now and feeling a bit better during the day. My anxiety is less, but I'm still super grouchy and irritable. My night times are still pretty bad. I'm not as anxious, but still have a lot of trouble sleeping. It's like my mind just never shuts down. Do I keep doing what I'm doing or not? I'm thinking of not taking the GABA at bedtime and seeing if I sleep better.
Thanks for the input Teenytoona. I'll see if I have some Epsom salts and soak in them a bit. I thought the 5-HTP had a stimulating effect, so I've been a bit wary of taking them at bedtime. Maybe I should try that instead of the GABA tomorrow. I just want to feel better.
oh I'm so glad I noticed this post... I've read through about 15 pages and have decided to try inositol, not sure tho does this need to be taken with niacin or choline? (both were mentioned as something that should be taken with it but I have no clue, I was writing everything down as I came to it and I'm just not sure.) also, I think I will try 5htp, gaba, L-theanine and calcium/mag. I'm taking B-complex currently - its all I'm taking. I also am getting wonderful sunshine... vit D.
Inositol sounds amazing! and I'm anxious to try it.
