L-theanine is not magic but it's not really placebo either. What L-theanine actually does is takes the edge off of caffeine. So if you buy a big bottle of L-theanine and take it that way, it's not going to do much. If you drink a few cups of high quality green tea you will notice that you have what feels like a caffeine buzz without being a nervous wreck like you would be if you drank coffee. This is because quality green tea has caffeine AND L-theanine and coffee doesn't.

That said, L-theanine does not cure SA (or anything else). It just gives you clarity and focus for a short period of time. Then it's time for another cup of tea.
lol just go everywhere with a cup of tea
