    Does anyone have any experiences of using Adderall and 5thp?

    Experiences of any recreational value?

    Experiences of assisting with amphetamine comedown, rebound, or recovery?

    Or any insight at all from actual use and not just theoretical speculation about what the effects should be?

    Any tips or suggestions?

    Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    if swiy wants to use for amphetamine comedown, rebound, or recovery?may swicr suggest adding L-Tyrosine to that combination as Tyrosine will replace Dopamine in the brain which is depleted with use of amphetamine!

    5htp would also help along with L-Tyrosine. amphetamines deplete both dopamine and serotonin

    SWIM is prescribed adderall but that has only been recent and SWIM never thought to take 5htp when he was buying adderall off of friends. SWIM hasn't taken his 5htp in awhile because he was taking too much and all the serotonin in his blood caused SWIM to get sick and it turned him off of it. SWIM took 5htp to offset the what ecstasy use did to SWIM's serotonin levels. Overall it helped even SWIM out from his ecstasy use and even when SWIM stopped doing Ecstasy for awhile and still took the 5htp it overall made him happier.

    SWIM has opened one of his 200mg 5htp caps and snorted the contents(a lot to snort) the first time SWIM felt like he was on ecstasy for about an hour and felt amazing and with each time he did it he had less of an effect and finally did it with his girlfriend who had never done ecstasy and both of them felt no effect. SWIM hadn't rolled in months and the 5htp leveled out SWIMS serotonin and since SWIM's girlfriend felt no effect either SWIM can only assume that snorting of 5htp will only produce recreational effects if your serotonin is out of whack from ecstasy use.

    One time SWIM was coming down off Ecstasy and decided to take about 20-25 200mg 5htp pills. Bad idea unless you have a PDI to keep serotonin out of your blood. At first SWIM felt amazing, like he had taken more Ecstasy, about an hour later SWIM was in the middle of Dallas puking up blood for an hour on the side of the road.

    more than 4 200mg pills of 5htp will give you the worst nausea ever. the second time it happened SWIM took 5 and a friend was at his house SWIM decided to lay down before he took his friend to his girlfriends cause he felt sick.(SWIM and friend were coming down)SWIM got up to go to the bathroom and sat on the toilet and quickly got up pants down and started puking in the toliet and then passed out for an hour in the bathroom and neither SWIMS friend or sister could knock loud enough to wake him up.

    the sickness only lasts for an hour or 2 but it is extrememly horrible to go through, horrible headache, stomach pains, puking. like a bad stomach virus

    Most benefits, as already detailed, will be in the form of comedown relief and resupplying neurotransmitters that adderall uses. Combining the two doesn't have any conceivable recreational value since all 5-HTP is going to do in the short-term is make SWIY sleepy. But perhaps another SWIY has first hand experience of positive recreational experiences that makes this deductive hypothesis incorrect. I haven't seen any reports before, though.

    SWIM does have recreational experiences with 5htp. SWIM also just looked at his 5htp bottle and has L-Tyrosine in it already. So if you want to try both when you are looking around for 5htp find one with both to save u money.

    SWIM rolls a lot. Therefore his serotonin levels are a little out of whack. Well snorting a 200mg 5htp made swim feel like he was rolling for a few hours and when SWIM came down he just felt happy no bad comedown. SWIM tried it more and this was when he hadn't rolled in awhile and didn't have an E hookup. Well as he tried it more and more the effects kept getting weaker, SWIM didn't think anything of this. Finally SWIM got SWIM's girlfriend to try it with him because she had never rolled before and wanted her to see what it was like until he could find E. SWIM felt no effects at all and neither did his girlfriend. This makes SWIM think that your serotonin has to be out of Whack from E to feel any recreational value. And SWIMS serotonin went back to normal SWIM guesses after snorting it about 4 times.
    Also another recreational value SWIM felt from it was when he was about to come off of E he took about 25. 30 minutes later SWIM felt like he was rolling again. An hour or 2 later SWIM was puking blood though from too much serotonin in his blood :/ (SWIM had no idea that would happen if you took too much)

    5-HTP makes you need to take alot more amp then usually atleast for swim. When swim toke around 100-200 mg of 5-HTP daily, 50 mg of amphetamine put him to fucking sleep.

    That makes sense. If SWIY took 5-HTP before taking amp he would be sleepy before taking amp. I know that my Adderall perscription doesn't have crap on Thanksgiving dinner. I get tired regardless of if I took my prescription or not because of the tryptophan. Introducing precursors to serotonin before taking amp, even if it increased serotonin levels that quickly somehow, wouldn't boost the CNS effects of amps. First of all 5-HTP is part of a process your body uses to manufacture serotonin, it doesn't just give it to you. And even if it did, I beleive you would see a change in euphoria moreso than stimulation.

    What happen was SWIM has been taking 5-htp for a month (down to 6 capsules now) and he would take it in the morning and at night it still seemed to increase tolerance for SWIM. Others SWIM has talked to noted this noted this effect to some degree. It's like 5-htp increases dosages needed while magnesium seems to decrease the tolerence.

    Sorry for double post, SWIM meant 5-htp in morning; amphetamine at night

    Increase tolerance for amps or increase tolerance for more 5-HTP? If it increased your tolerance for amps that would make sense. Although I don't know what the cumulative effects are of taking 5-HTP long-term on Adderall tolerance. I can logically understand it doing either. It would increase tolerance if the increased serotonin levels were causing SWIY to become tolerant to the effects of serotonin, but it would decrease tolerance if it was simply filling the serotonin resovoirs with more to be dumped upon taking Adderall. Short-term, generally, a CNS depressant will stifle the stimulation provided by CNS stimulants. I don't know about long-term though. Would you mind clarifying SWIY's tolerance?
