    iv'e been using the same stuff, i dosen't do much for me, on sat i had 1225mg and about 10 shots and i was still in decent shape, i though 1-2 shots plus 1g would do it, like otheres have posted. I'm not a heavy drinker, i drink maybe once a week if that.. its not a tolerance to phenibut either, i haven't used the stuff in about 2 weeks, and have only taken maybe 4 doses ever.


  2. i had bought some a while ago and used like a gram or a gram and a half with really no affect , so as time went by ...the other day i thought i'll really give it a try so i took like 3-3.5 g's and man after a few hours like 6 , my body and ,mind was so relaxed i couldnt walk straight and couldnt stay awake , fell asleep woke upbarely b4 bed time and couldnt keep my eyes open and fell sound asleep[out like a lght]till the next day then woke but kinda felt hungover and brain fog all day !

    1st of all there is a withdrawal effect after years of using phenibut. it is a gaba-agonist so it is best to be detoxed w/ a gaba-agonist like klonopin. i was in some distress 4 a while after stopping phenibut. my symptoms were the same as if i was going thru benzo withdrawal.

    Yeah you really dont wanna **** with opiates though. Opiates are the most addictive substance on the planet.

  8. Oh yeah they sure are i'm still going through mental withdrawl, although tramadol isn't a real opiate its a synthetic... It sounds like this phenibut is similar posibly to an opiate high or am I wrong? I don't think I want to mess with it though considering the hangover and the fact I was addicted to opiates...

    The hangover from it is very strange. Sometimes it's not that bad, and sometimes ***etaboutit!! Usually they are rather bad when alcohol is involved.

    Same here. I get absolutely nothing from phenibut unless i take at least 5 grams. I get the hangover effect the next morning, but it's still not as bad as an antihistamine hangover for me.

  11. I won't even take phenibut unless I know i can sleep for 11 or 12 hours. The first time I ever tried it I had to get up at like 6:00 the next morning. I was completely out of it all day at work. Normal tasks were taking like 2 or 3 times longer than usual because I was so sleepy. It's usually a very rejuvenating substance as long as I can sleep it off, though. When I'm able to get all that sleep, I feel very clear-headed and energized the day after phenibut.

    Phenibut is NOT a benzodiazapine, but it does have some similar effects as does GABA.

    Theanine has very good synergy with phenibut, IMO.

    Magnolia extract + theanine + phenibut is outstanding.

    I'd agree with dsade. Using a more addictive drug (klonopin) to help with withdrawal of a less addictive drug (phenibut) would not have been my first choice for therapy.

    Its like treating a codeine addiction with oxycontin.

    Phenibut's effects are nothing like those of an opiate other than possibly sedation/euphoria.

    If you like tramadol, give kratom a shot. If you find a good source, it's much better than tram.

    ~500mg theanine in hot green tea, ~1g phenibut, ~1g rhodiola rosea

    these have a synergy which makes me alert and relaxed, classes seem much easier in school.

    i don't know, i get an almost identical euphoria by taking phenibut once a week or two as i do by popping the very occasional hydrocodone-apap. after the half-life comes around though, phenibut can give me a minor but annoying headache whereas hydrocodone never does. I consider phenibut a safe non-toxic vicodin that i need to take alphaGPC with so as to avoid the headaches

    lol, I use aGPC like most use Tylenol. Ever since I got some enormous cluster headaches from using Piracetam without reading up about it enough to know I NEEDED a choline source. I have a hunch that many normal headaches stem from some kind of choline depletion, because if my GF gets a headache I'll cap her a little of my aGPC and usually it goes away within 30 mins.

  23. Yes I take choline with my Alcar and Piracetam. So take choline when you have a heache. Nice little info

Hi-Tech has had problems with their products being "contaminated." Their erection supplement was yanked from the shelves when it tested to actually contain viagra and there were other similar incidents which I can't recall the details of. It wouldn't surprise me if their somitimax was "contaminated" with something pharmaceutical.


    I wouldnt be surprised either if there was something else in it. I bought some somatomax on the recommendations of someone on another board. Tried it and it worked well. I slept like a baby and can be really groggy the next morning if you dont sleep atleast 10 hours or so. Also I felt really pumped the next day after a workout compared to without the stuff.

    I didnt know about high tech's shady history until I was reading about it after I had tried out somatomax. I bought some phenibute after I read it was the largest ingredient on the somatomax label and it was a lot cheaper than the somatomax. I had used 250-500mg doses of the phenibute for sleep or anxiety and it works real well for that. Didnt notice any "pump" effect the next day after a work out. Also doesnt knock me out as much as somatomax.

    I wouldnt be surprised at all if there was something else added in it. It almost seems to work too well to just be what is on the label.

  26. so I tried Phenibut (here name is ноофен but it is the same stuff) for the first time last night... I took 500mg at about 1/2 hr intervals... 3.5g over about 2.5 hours. And all I felt from it was a little dulling of any anxiety... about what 1/2 a drink would do. I do have a strange hangover today where I still feel a little drunk, but it could be from the drinking.

    I drank last night more than I had drunk in quite some time. Somehow I continued to drink until 16 drinks (apple juice and jack daniels) [normally I stop around 9 to 12 drinks) and one minute I am fine then I'm completely wasted and can't walk anything close to straight. But really it just felt like effects of one too many drinks.

    I started to drink about 4 hours into the phenibut.

    So is it normal for some people on first time 3.5g to feel nothing? I tried picamillon about a week ago a couple of times and standard dosages there seemed to work properly for me. (first time on picamilon I was mildly euphoric and in a great mood - felt the same as the elusive mixture of supplements I took a couple times before... elusive because I could only replicate this mild euphoria + great mood about 1 in 3 times - I was taking a lot of GABA - half sublingually + l-theanine + 5 HTP + other stuff like taurine and magnesium/potassium for good measure... but I stopped doing that a long time ago because it wasn't consistent)

    btw. I am a bit on the heavy side... 6'3, 245 lbs... about 20 to 25 lbs overweight I'm guessing. picamillon didn't seem to be affected much by body weight (I was taking 100 to 150mg)... but could it be that phenibut is? I was hoping phenibut would be great for me but if 3.5 grams doesn't do anything for me, I'm scared (money wise - it is about $20 for 20 250mg tablets) how much would be required for me to take...

    any insights would be appreciated, thanks.

    Take your entire dose on an EMPTY stomach. Wait a good 90 minutes after eating to take the phenibut, then wait a good 30 minutes after taking the phenibut before you eat again. The effects can take a couple hours to kick in, but should be noticeable in less than an hour. And the hang over was from the phenibut

  28. thanks... i started to take it maybe 1 hour or so after eating dinner. Didn't eat anything else that night.

    So I should take it all at once I guess. What dose do you recommend I should take? And if I don't notice anything after a period of time, how much more should I take?

    This.

    Try valerian root, too.

  30. 2.5g??? if you've been taking it for years then okay -- big tolerance.

    If not then consider birth place ... was it planet earth?

    Thats phenibut to knock out a horse.

    Good answer. Rhodiola is an adaptogen - its about homeostasis not really a sense of calm and well being.

    GABBA (unmodified phenibut) has a marginal effect.

    I think tolerances vary from person to person. I have taken up to 8 grams with positive euphoric effects (a little more mild than an alcohol buzz) and no hangover.

    Don't plan on having sex after taking phenibut. Wet noodle.

  33. anyone know if cold tea (I mean if i made tea and let it sit until it was cold) works just as well as hot tea? to "rechage" phenibut?

  34. GHB is better. pheni is stout too

  35. I use phenibut 4-5 days a week 4 grams a day i try to go mon tues. on wed. off and thurs. fri on and take sat and sun off to rebuild my brain but the two days off or weds. is the worst days ever so tired. One thing i get when im not on them is anxiety like crazy but when im on pheni i get like a vicodin buzz, it helps a lot if i drink pheni with a good energy drink

  36. Phenibut does kick ass i have been using the Phenibut Primaforce powder all summer just started the capsules what do you think is better? It was my first day for the capsules i think i like the powder better besides the taste

    You dose 4gr at once?

    I recently started adding 2gr of pheni with my SX. I can't say I notice much from it, but I was a little hesitant to dose higher. Still experimenting with this stuff.

  38. I've tried different dosing methods and the one the only way I really feel the effects is by splitting it into two doses. If I want to take 4 grams I'll do 2 grams first, then wait 2-3 hours and take another 2 grams. I start to really feel it an hour or 2 after the second dose.

DON'T BE ALARMED you will develop a quick tolerance to it for about the 1st month or so then you will be at that dose for as long as you want to use it. i use 5-6 grams at night and get a nice effect from it-helps me sleep and helped me overcome social phobia as well w/ effexor. ALSO STOPPED PHENIBUT FOR 9-10 MONTHS w/ no problems. no bad benzo withdraw nothing at all and i heard benzo w/d can feel like the world ending. GREAT STUFF!!
    I used Phenibut for a few days at 2 grams and it was great the first two days but then tolerance developed. Do you know whether there is a limit to tolerance, meaning beyond a certain point the effects will remain and not have tolerance (even if that means having to take many grams)?

    Thanks!

  40. Standardized Kava capsules (for example, NOW brand has 30% kavalactone caps) are great for anti-anxiety/euphoria if you take enough (I actually take about 20 to get "high", like not actually high but pretty nice euphoria.) I didn't really like phenibut because of the rebound effects. Well good luck on your search
