I have always heard that green teas are good for anxiety.

So just to see if I have the basic facts correct. You took it at 750mg doses 2x a day for about 40 days, then it gave you the strung out feeling. And the only noticable side effects/withdraw symptoms was that strung out feeling and being tired. Correct?

How bad would you say that strung out feeling was?
Where you taking anything else with the Phenibut?

Also have you heard of/tried a supplement called Picamilon I have read on different sites people comparing it to Phenibut.

I started taking Phenibut this past week. The first day that I took it, it made me feel so drowsy and out of it. I felt like I was intoxicated and my mind was really cloudy. It wasn't a very good feeling at all. I took 750 mg again this morning, and I don't feel drunk like I did the first day that I took it, but I do feel very relaxed. My mind still feels pretty cloudy though, I'm going to keep taking it and see what happens.

Sorry for the delay in responding. That is correct, I took 1.5g total daily for over one month. I believe the strung out feeling is withdrawal from the supplement. I would say the withdrawal is probably comparable to coming off of Klonopin. It is not fun, but it lasts a few days only. I wasn't really taking anything else with the Phenibut.

I have heard of Picamilon, but have never tried it before. Is that gaba fused with Niacin? Or am I getting it confused with gabapentin?

Thanks

Thanks for posting your experiences with Phenibut. I have decided to only use it one or two days at a time, with a week or more of time off before repeating. I need to experiment with the dosage so I can know what to expect exactly. I would like to use Phenibut as needed for important meetings or other highly stressful situations.

How long do the effects of Phenibut last?

Phenibut lasts a long time, usually about 24 hours I think.

I just took my first dose (760mg) this afternoon. Within a half an hour or so, I started to get the giggles. This reminded me of the short eurphoric effects of Lexapro. Now, a couple hours later, I'm beginning to feel a bit drowsy. It's probably due to my erratic sleeping schedule, but I wouldn't be surpised if the Phenibut factors in. Anyway, I'm pleased with the effects. However, I wish the intensity would last longer. I'm considering taking a dose (or two) everyday.

After reading all the posts about this phenibut, I decided to try it. I did 750 mg in water and within maybe a half hour or so I felt great. This was at about 4:30 this afternoon and it's now 10:24. At first I felt the slightest bit of nausea but it was very mild and not bothersome at all and it passed without me even noticing. I did feel much more social - or, at least being social didn't bother me like it usually does. I struck up a conversation with the checkout girl at the food store. Something I usually do not do.
So, this stuff is pretty good so far.

This stuff is amazing. I've been taking one 760mg dose everyday (since I started), and, well, life is great! It beats dealing with all those nasty side-effects from SSRIs and benzos. And it's easier on the wallet.

Almost 5 days. And I'm thinking about telling my psychiatrist I'll no longer be needing her services.

So is it agreed that the general starting out is 750 MG in the morning and a 750 mg dose later if needed?

How do people take it? I got a bottle of PRIMAFORCE PHENIBUT 250 mg caps.

Whats the tolerence like on this?

start off slow, it might make your stomach quezy. It seems like 500mg is good to start with, you can always take more later. Tolerance builds very fast for most people. Good luck!

There really has not been enough Scientific study to conclude that it is safe for anyone to take. I would definitly not feel comfortable giving this to a child.

Wow fearNoMore I'm so glad you've done all this work with phenibut. I've been reading all night (lol it's now 3:40AM) this has been really helpful. thanks. I'm checking out those sights where you can buy it. Was just wondering, did you get "1fast400"? if not what do you get?

i have to advise, as effective as phenibut is, it is a very potent and potentially dangerous drug, and must be taken cautiously. as with any central nervous system depressant it can must be taken responsibly after much research.
lowest effective dose possible.
cannot be taken ongoing (ESP every day!)
only effective for severe panic attacks/temporary relief

too many people die (especially in there sleep from suppressing their respiratory function from CNS depressants) from gaba agonists and such

I agree. I think I'll stick to Kava and Benzo's before I give this one a try. I just can't find any info on this one. Sounds interesting though.

When I tried phenibut I noticed a seem a little more calm but only moderately. I think benzos help me much more.
