I figured out a really awesome mix. L-theanine and Klonopin.

Normally on a PRN basis I will take 2-2.5mg of klonopin, but this morning I took 200mg of L-theanine and just 1mg of klonopin and I actually got a better effect than the 2 mg of klonopin. And when I say better I mean the effect was almost doubled! I actually felt completely calm and normal for about 5 hours. I was able to talk to people and be in public and I felt completely fine, no anxiety or discomfort whatsoever. I just felt very loose and in a good mood. This was totally unexpected and i am gonna try this again tomorrow to see if i get the same effect.

Pic didn't show, yo. Any Idea on why it had this effect? The L-theanine i bought is called Suntheanine and i got it from GNC.

fixed. and likely because l-theanine crosses the blood brain barrier and is known to increase levels of gaba within the brain thus enhancing the gabaergic nature of the benzodiazepines. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17182482

Cool, I guess that means I can use it to stretch my supply. I just don't know why the effect was so strong. I actually felt it hit me hard, when normally Klonopin just calms me down very slowly.

you could also experiment with l-theanine (suntheanine, the proprietary formula) on its own to see if it's sufficiently anxiolytic.

I have, and it didn't really do anything. One thing I noticed though is if i take it with my coffee in the morning then I get the mental alertness of the caffeine but not the jittery anxiety feeling.

I just tried this mix again today and it had the same effect, it hit me only 1 hour after I took it. This is awesome! I just hope I'm not getting myself into trouble because i don't know what effect this is having on my brain chemistry.

Should I try this L-Theanine thing with my Ativan? I might give it a go and see what happens. And how of your SA would you say this helps with bro?

It helps me a lot. It seems to make the effect of my Klonopin a lot stronger. Normally my Klonopin would come on so slow that I could barely even tell that it was working. Now i can actually feel it hit me.

I can feel it pretty strong for about 5 hours. It starts to taper away after that.

Did you try taking 400mg of L-theanine with 2mg klonopin? or any other variations?


I wonder how strong this combo can get for anxiety.

No I haven't tried that. I am trying to use the bare minimum to stretch my dwindling Klonopin supply. I used 200mg L-theanine with 0.5mg klonopin and I still got a decent effect that made my day more tolerable.

What do you mean by strong? like reducing anxiety in general and in social situations? Or just making klonopin "feel" stronger/acting more strongly as a hypnotic?

how much do you have left? and why won't you switch physicians?

will you become tolerant to the effects of the l-theanine increasing those levels or is this something anyone taking benzos should be taking aswell so they don't have to take as much mg of their benzo (if it actually does do anything)?
