    Phenibut a "drug"?


    Greetings Pat,

    I know Phenibut is not an AAS or PH, but given your knowledge of chemistry and compounds , I was curious about your opinion of the compoundas to being a true "drug". Internet literature says the Russian cosmonauts used it for relief of anxiety, and compared it to Valium . Based on its structure and action do you consider it a drug??

    Thanks in advance

    everything that has an effect on the body is a drug. Foods can be drugs.

    the legal definition of drug is another thing. the status of phenibut as a supplement is a little grey

    Personally, phenibut feels very similar to xanax to me. I was actually pretty surprised.

    both act on GABA receptors. Phenibut acts as an agonist directly and xanax potentiates the receptor to endogenous GABA
