5-HTP or Prozac

So I have been on prozac for just over a year now and I am not sure if I should stick with that or go on to this 5-HTp stuff that heather turned me on too.

About two months or so ago Heather told me about 5-HTP which is a saratonin suppliment and works like prozac. So I stopped taking Prozac and started taking that. My hope was that it would work just the same and then I would not need to see my doctor every 3 months to get more. Well I tried it for over a month and I wasn'tsure about it because that time was a very stressful time for me so i wasn't sure if it was the 5-htp or just the unusuall amount of stress that made me wakky. So I stopped the HTP for some time and now have been back on prozac. I feel great but the stress has also been taken away too. So now I am faced with the dilema of going back to the doctor here soon to get more prozac or go back on HTp to try one more time now that things have calmed down. So I need an opinion on all of this.

For those that have not heard of HTp I have included some links that I used to research it before I started taking it.

Any advice you can give me would be helpful. Thank you
