People with low melatonin who take 5-HTP at nighttime will enjoy the same sleep enhancing benefits as they would from taking melatonin alone, but they will also be getting the broader spectrum of benefits that comes from increased serotonin levels.
A fair amount of good evidence does suggest that melatonin has a role in helping sleep disturbances, especially those caused by a disrupted natural sleep-wake cycles (such as jet lag or disturbed weekend sleep patterns).*
5-HTP is a direct precursor to serotonin, which is a major neurotransmitter of the central nervous system.*
