I don't get any side effects or afterglow. Any relief from anxiety during the week for me are the result of a happy weekend of being pro-social or productive.

I don't have bad anxiety though. It's mild at worst, as I'm much recovered from where I was at once point years ago.

Phenibut is just a nice little social oiler since alcohol is of little benefit for me. I also find it good for just chilling out or working on creative stuff as it can help with motivation.

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?

I get a stronger effect from 1g as opposed to 2g taken only 2 times per month max. I thought it stopped working completely with the 2 g dose felt nothing. Very strange. Less is more as others have said previously now I know it

That is strange. I've never heard anyone say "less is more" in relation to drugs. Apart from maybe people who believe in homeopathy.

I could be wrong. The only thing different was I was taking Wellbutrin at the time when I took 2, up to2.5 grams and literally felt nothing. That medication may have interfered. Only way to know is take a high dose again and see. I probably should have held off on that comment since I don't know for sure yet. I will update when I dose again.

phenibut


Phenibut does nothing for my sleep. maybe I have to increase the dose because I'm addicted to klonopin. Klonopin at 3.5 milligrams does nothing. However, phenibut for sexual intercourse is amazing. It makes you last longer and when you finish It feels like your in heaven.
for anxiety or sleep no good for me.

Experiencing some weird **** with Phenibut. When I first started taking it I needed 3.3g to feel anything, I then experimented and went all the way to 4.5g. But now it feels like the potency further down the tub has got better. Because 3.6g used to be sweet spot, but now it feels like complete overkill, I get overally tired, drowsiness, nausea, and I look totally wasted/drunk when I take that amount (I didn't get that before). What's weird is the taste is much stronger now as well, taking that amount of powder with water almost makes me throw up.

I've not heard of a mixed potency batch but I guess it could exist. Just try to dose lower to remove those side effects.

Hello all, i am experimenting a bit with phenibut and i get a extremely relaxed feeling.
But the leaflet says: take 1 - 2 capsules daily 5 days in a row and than stop a week.
Was wondering how is should be used because some people say it should be taken only 2 days in a week.

I hope someone can help me.

Cheers!

What dosage are the capsules?

The time I took it for 4 days in a row led to a horrific withdrawal where I felt terrible for the next 4 days. It's different for different people, so you might just need to do some careful experimentation to see what works for you.

1g a day for 5 days then a week break may be OK. You'll just need to see what works as everyone is different. It's only 1g more than I take a week.

500mg is a low dose. You may feel nothing.

It should take an hour or two to feel the effects.

Go with 500mg this time and work your way up in 500mg increments in future until you find the dose that is right for you.

The first time I tried Phenibut years ago was a single 500mg dose. This produced effects, but wasn't near enough to take the edge off of social anxiety. In all the literature I've read, the starting dose for social anxiety is usually around 1500mg, but everyone is different so whenever you have a day to experiment I'd note how the 500mg effected you and then increase by 500mg just like the other poster suggested, but it's important to have some time to experiment with dosages to find which one is right for you. Usually with phenibut you'll begin to feel some effects within an hour and the full effects will be present around the 2-3 hour mark. Be advised that if you ever take too much you'll most likely vomit from a gaba overload in your brain. That's why it's important to be able to just take your time and slowly experiment with doses whenever you have some free time. Slightly increase the dose until you get the desired effects.
