5-HTP, severe gas and pain


Regular Member
I even tried the Nature's Way 5-HTP, enteric coated and it causing severe gas pain and bloating about 2-3 hours after taking it with lunch.

WHy so? I also take only 25 mg. a day or 50. Are there any brands that are better than others for this pain, that are still entric coated.?
