I have mild social anxiety while my mom's is moderate. She's had it for decades. I recently tried NOW brand's L-Trytophan (500mg). It was like an enormous burden was lifted off of my body and I noticed it just annihilates social anxiety, esp. if you take 1000mg. Same effect for my mom, and she's been dealing with social anxiety for a long time.

I've read on a message board that others have had the same experience. One person says it just destroys social anxiety. This has been my experience. It is phenomenal.

Any one have a similar experience?

Just started taking it last week, and it's working wonders. I wish I started taking it four years ago instead of listening to my doctor and becoming addicted to Klonopin, which ultimately multiplied all of my problems by 100 and created new ones out of thin air.

**** medication, L-Tryptophan is all I need. Zero side effects.

This is what I take, and it works wonders:

http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/doc/enhanced.html

It has B6/B3 in it. It actually amazed me how well this stuff worked from day one. If you're used to taking SSRI's (etc), then you'll need to start out taking this in high doses. I started out taking 4g per day, but am now taking about 3g depending on the circumstances. But it really obliterated my social anxiety and gave me my "humorous" personality back. I went out with my girlfriend and I made her & the waitress laugh all night, it was ridiculous. I've been extremely confident in almost every social situation since then.

Feels good, man.

It sickens me how doctors are throwing out klonopin left and right to people with GAD/SAD. Absolutely sickens me. They should just give L-Tryptophan to people at first, and proceed to see how it works out before hooking them on heroin.

I'd much rather have chosen that path over becoming a zombified benzo slave that only contributes to worsened anxiety and unbearable side effects.

Took 5-htp (a precursor like tryptophan to serotonin) for a year back in 2007. It was the most effective thing I've ever taken. It took me out of a life long depression and helped me change myself in a million ways. The risk of heart valve problems got me turned from it though. L-tryptophan doesnt have these issues though and if I could get my hands on some I'd definetly give it another shot.
