I reduced my DAA to less than 0.5 g per day and I don't feel unusual, and I do seem to have some libido effect (higher). Everyone is different. A lot of dispute about whether GABA crosses the blood brain barrier. Rarely do I see anyone acknowledge it may be variable. It certainly crosses the barrier for me to some degree, and whatever part of the brain it might be, because GABA consistently helps me to go to sleep (and believe me, I've tried placebos in the form of things like chamomile and I wish they helped me sleep!).

On dosage, I'm now taking about 0.5 g per day. I'm going to see how this goes because it doesn't seem to me there is a very strong rationale for 3 g per day. Some of the recommendations for Creatine seem to me ridiculously high. The research I've seen indicates that 2-3 g of Creatine has the same effect as the higher dosages (albeit the result may take a bit longer to achieve).
Does anyone know of any rationale for ~ 3 g? (other than that they happened to use that much in the J. Reprod Biology and Endocrinology study)
They had all of 23 guys in the 'treatment' group. Still, they got a fair F-ratio, assuming it's all legit, albeit more studies could easily contradict it still. However, for all we know, if they'd had three treatment groups with, say, 0.5 g, 1.5 g, 3 g, there may have been no difference between the 0.5 g and 3 g. No way of knowing, as far as I can see; 0.5 g more than usual could be quite a lot for all I know (and can tell from what I've read).
I think I'll stick with ~ 500 mg per day for a while.

I just spent about an hour reading all 25 pages of this thread.
Now I'm more tired than I would be following a hard leg workout!
It's cool that we have so many educated and well-informed members around here.

when you ingest DAA it does go everywhere but it only collects in cells which have the mechansims to extract and sequester it
The fact that cells are able to extract it from plasma seems to indicate that circulating DAA is a substantial contribution to target tissue storage

i was given general anesthesia over the summer to remove a kidney stone and the anesthesiologist said he was putting something in the IV to relax me. It didnt relax me though it freaked me out. cuz it made me feel weird and then i thought i was gonna die or something. so i know what you say. perhaps the DAA is not anxiogenic at all (i dont think it is) but some people freak out cuz they are ultra sensitive to feeling "different"

I'm 24 and after all the people saying how good daa is I used a bottle of tcf1 3 grams per day for a month I noticed absolutley nothing no strength gains or muscle or libido ... If anything the only thing I got from daa was my left arm and bicep kept shaking muscle spasym.
I won't use daa ever again and will stick to activate xtreme .

I just got some of this. I took my first dose a few minutes ago. Hopefully I won't have any of the negative effects that are listed.

I think DAA was giving me what some people would call anxiety but to me it was just an unusual nervous energy type feeling.
