Default 5-htp

Hi, has anyone tried the supplement 5-HTP..... Dr. Oz was talking about it last week he had a specialist on and she was saying everyone should be using this supplement....

Help control appetite
Help depression
Can help with hot flashes

This is info I found on the internet:
Widely used to help with obesity (dieting), PMS, migraines, depression, anxiety, insomnia and addictive behaviour. 5 HTP increases production of serotonin. Serotonin levels in the nervous system are essential for so many aspects of our daily lives. Serotonin is responsible for feelings of well being, satisfaction and for normal sleep patterns. Obesity, PMS, migraines, depression, anxiety, insomnia and addictive behavior have all been associated with low levels of serotonin. Serotonin plays an important role in controlling anger, aggression, body temperature, mood, sleep, human sexuality, appetite, and metabolism

So just wondering if anyone has tried it and if it does work?
