I've been doing a lot of reading about the supplement 5-HTP and people on here who have used it to treat premature ejaculation with some success. I'm considering trying it, but would like advice from people who have tried it. I've read that it's not recommended to be taken for extended periods, i.e. not more than 3 months. Is it feasible to take it only when you think you'll be needing it? Since 5-HTP helps the body produce more seratonin, could taking it sporadically lead to a roller coaster of highs and lows? Also, what dosage does anyone here recommend for treating PE? I've read about recommended dosages for treating depression, but my question is, would treatment of PE warrant a different, maybe smaller, dosage? Any advice, recommendations, or accounts of your own experiences would be appreciated.
