The two Russian over the counter treatments which work best for anxiety-related issues are FENIBUT and FENAZEPAM. The former is more commonly used in acute situations, the latter more long-term as a prophylactic, 1mg or 2,5mg twice daily. Both are available from online pharmacies based in Russia at excellent prices. I use both, as well as the clonazepam 2mg tds which I am prescribed for prophylaxis of both epilepsy and panic disorder.
Why Fenibut is not more widely seen and used is a mystery, as it is so useful and so efficacious.
FENAZEPAM is exceedingly strong and is an excellent prophylactic, taken in the week leading up to the situation which is causing the social anxiety, if it is a scheduled event or the like, needing to build up in the system to prevent problems on the day. Fenibut may be taken at the first sign of anything going 'haywire' but does tend to take a good hour or so to begin working.
In some countries they are not OTC but scheduled, making their acquisition at user's risk. Be careful! But both are safe and effective, the products made by Valenta Pharmaceuticals being of top quality.
sale for human use is illegal and states one by one add substances like Phenazepa, Kratom and others to the list of controlled substances
The Dark Cabal of Suffering & Evil at least contact and pressure vendors before they end up having a DEA meeting calling it a "drug of concern" and doing an "emergency scheduling" of the drug then just have congress approve it to be permanently added to the list of controlled substances.
The Dark Cabal of Suffering & Evil (DCSE) Always finds ways to invoke control and increased suffering, decreased quality of life, world-wide. All 196 Nations on Earth are Authoritarian-Collectivist in nature whereas zero are Libertarian-Individualist. This would be like flipping a coin 196 times and it lands on tails 196 times in a row, its no coincidence and by design, Each Nation has almost the same agencies, Laws and Policies with slightly differing terminology.
If there's a medicine that helps someone a little bit and reduces suffering a little bit but the person with the disorder is STILL worse off than a non-disorder person taking nothing, that Medicine will STILL be banned with that banned being back with automatic weapons and deadly force.
For example, In the US, The branches of the Dark Cabal of Suffering & Evil (DCSE) that handle banning meds that work a little are called the FDA, DEA, Local and federal law-makers, and the doctors on medical boards that advise them. (People who never felt a dysphoric state of consciousness in their lives and only had emotional upset occasionally, which is much less torture than dysphoria)
They find ways to use Psychological Operations and Linguistic Programming to back their restricting and banning of these medications. For instance they will use Phrases like "Recreational Use & Abuse". This repeated for decades then makes common people a free and defend their authoritarian policies.
They then put out medicines that do not work but have just as much withdrawal syndrome in many cases , yet don't work so you aren't even getting any benefit paying the high price of dependency
For example; Effexor & Paxil cause just as bad or worse dpeendance than opioids yet opioids are banned for use in pyschitry, so you get a drug that doesnt work yet causes the same dependance-amount. They want you hooked on things that don't work so that when you take the med, it doesn't work, but then when you go off it you start vomiting and getting very ill. then they ban other things that have dependance but work,
The FDA & DEA (Members of the Dark Cabal of Suffering & Evil) have already banned dozens of things that help people, and do things like "Operation web tryp" and they will continually shut down vendors and ban anything that helps people get minimal relief, then force people to choose from a list of drugs that doctors can prescribe, where 100% on the list are fake and do not provide any relief.
They will not care about other people's lives being destroyed, or remaining destroyed as much as possible, so long as its not their own life or family destroyed. If people in positions of power that set policy suffered and then got small relief from something, they would make sure that something was available to them instead of banning themselves from getting it, but this of course is a moot point, since if they suffered, they would not be able to work a job or become a doctor to be on a medical board, or become a government employee, they would instead be too sick to work.
So they set policy that prevents anyone from getting any treatments that work any amount and this policy is then backed by cease and disist orders, arrest and deadly force using semi automatic weapons, and if ever necessary, fully automatic weapons and military grade weaponry.
If a company ever started synthesizing and offering medications to help people, that company WILL be raided and employees either arrested or executed on the spot with assault rifles.
IN SHORT: The Dark Cabal assures there are never available any treatments for people to get minimal relief from, and only allow treatments that do not work. Any attempt to circumvent this dark & evil policy of destruction and suffering will be met with deadly force using military hardware to arrest or execute the perpetrators. They want you suffering or dead.
