This might not be the best place to ask this but:
Is it absolutely a bad idea to take Phenibut when already on an MAOI like Nardil?
Im on a relatively low dose of Nardil of 45mg/day (b/c higher for me I've found is marginal gains anxiety fighting wise for a lot more side effects)
The only gains I feel I get out of going higher on the Nardil dose is the antidepressant feeling, like, but after a few months it isnt a very significant effect, I find.
So I am looking to augment my Nardil dose with someone to help that side of me, some sort of mood enchancer. So Phenibut (I got some from liftmode a while back, but never tried it because I started MAOIs around the time it arrived)
Would I risk some sort of serotonin syndrome like system shutdown (but instead on GABA) or some kind of crisis by taking both Phenibut and Nardil?
I've google searched it but found no definite answer on the subject. As far as I know they both have an effect on GABA levels, but not sure how dangerous is it to maybe combine these. I'm also open to augmenting with any other med to suggest to my psych, who I'll be seeing soon.
Does anyone know?
