Any success with Gamma-hydroxybutyrate?


I know this has been banned as a supplement back in the 90s I believe but I've got access to unlimited amounts. As it's expensive I want to know your opinion of it as a anxiety reducer and social lubricant before I lay down cash for it.

did you try it? what was your experience??



GHB is as effective in the management of AWS as benzodiazepine and it seems to be quicker in reducing anxiety, agitation, and depression. Both drugs are safe and well-tolerated in AWS management.

I did try it. Effects are similar to alcohol but has its differences. Social anxiety reduction was about 3.5/10. Some feelings of confusion occurred at a medium dose of about 2.5g. Only moderately effective at anxiety reduction. Higher doses felt more euphoric but confusion increase. Feelings of dizziness and nausea were felt along with the intoxication. Overall feeling seemed ok as a social lubricant but wouldnt resort to it as an anxiety reducing agent. ?Benzos were more effective in anxiety reduction.
