I don't know where you got yours or if you've even tried it, but I assure you it is VERY effective at reducing anxiety for me and is unquestionably not a placebo effect. There are very noticeable effects. Maybe it doesn't work for you, you got a bad brand, or you didn't take enough, but it works for a lot of people.
I encourage everyone to try phenibut for yourselves if you get a chance. The dose I use is typically 1g but I've taken up to 2.5g before. I wouldn't recommend that though because it gives me some infrequent muscle twitches and a bad hangover and drowsiness the next day.
I know it works but it causes rapid tolerance not seen with any other drugs, besides that once your addicted the withdrawals are terrible for many, if it didnt cause as much tolerance id consider it a good supplement.
