Can 5-HTP help my Depression?

Clinical studies of 5-HTP have shown that it is just as effective as prescription Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), such as Prozac, in treating depression.
Unlike SSRIs, it is also reported that 5HTP does not disturb the brains natural metabolic procedures. 5-HTP works by changing the level of Serotonin in the brain, the same way prozac works. (Although 5-HTP restores levels of Serotonin, and Prozac increases levels, but both work on the same principle.)
