    Do make a research on this substance since it can be very dangerous to take it wrong way then end up with bad benzodiazepines like addiction and withdrawal symptoms.

    I myself was researching this substance last night and decided it's not worth the risk since a lot of them that took it had little or mostly undesirable effects.

    The ones that took it and had great results could build tolerance fast then start taking higher doses and got into addiction level.

    Definitely one of the dirty substances and by what I read pain to stop taking it since withdrawal symptoms last for weeks.

    Well looks like most substances that work on increasing levels of pleasure hormones and/or neurotransmitters can lead to tolerance and addiction.

    I myself would love to hear feedback from members of this forum taking phenibut and how overdosing or trying to quit affected them.

    There is a lot of rubbish out there... I fine less is best with Phenibut. My 1st container was a very light tiny granule product and I didn't appreciate the response. My 2nd purchase, was a diff brand and was far better a product. The granules were bigger and the taste was way worse.

    I won't name brands due to site rules unknown.

    I take 500mg from time to time, but I have an addictive personality, so I'm very careful. You build up a tolerance fast, I've read some guys taking 3+grams per dose. I threw the bottle out half way just to be safe lol. There's a huge thread on the other board about people with their withdrawal symptoms and their problems with phenibut so I wonder if it's even worth it. People with severe withdrawal symptoms much like benzos or other anti-depressants, anti-anxiety meds..

    I've done up to 2gm just to experiment, but find 1gm is good. I only use it on restless nights to avoid tolerance.

    I think it takes a couple grams if you want to "feel" something, 500mg is just like a mild anti-anxiety type dose.

    strange how an addictive substance is available OTC
    will try 1g instead of 500mg next time but wait some days with that. better be on the safe side
    perhaps my phenibut is of bad quality?got it very cheap from ebay. how should it taste? i dissolved the 500mg in water and washed them down. was a bit sour but not too awful taste.

    Pleanty of 'addictive' substances are available legally. Alcohol, cigarettes, etc. Just be a responsible adult and you'll be fine. I've used phenibut on and off for years with no issue. And I've found some bulk powders less effective, but then it's a subtle effect anyway (aside from the fuzzy head next day if you consume too much before sleep). If you are looking for a high, this won't really do that. Mild drunk feeling at best.

    quality varies from brand to brand.....for convience sake i like pre-capped, and found good quality with sns brand-price is very reasonable from a quality company i trust!!!

    i try to limit my use to 3xweek, and sometimes 4 but never more than 4.....i have never had any problems and have been using it off and on for over 4 years.

    I started using phenibut in capsule form, but found it more cost effective to switch to the powder tubs. For many yrs. I found the best price from NP for the Primaforce brand. I tried Nps own brand but found it less effective, so always stuck with Primaforce. At some point (maybe 1 yr ago?) EVERY vendor was out of stock of the product for about 2 months. When it became back in stock it seemed like a whole different product. Much less effective, slight odor and I would even get a slight headache using. I searched for different brands to try and luckily ran across Liftmode's through Amazon. No capsules but they have the tubs. It's the old crystal like form with the wanted effects of the 'original' supplement. Try it and you'll notice the difference.

    Kind of true....I have used it for years but that being said yes you have to be careful with it you will find yourself craving it if you over use it. I used it to come off a Alprazolam prescription. If used correctly this is a wonder supplement/drug but you must plan for the addictive properties for instance don't use it more then 2 days in a week and not back to back days. If you have anxiety problems look into l-theanine and allopregnanolone both help with anxiety and if you change the three out and never use one back to back and you should stay safe from addiction like symptoms...

    I will... Serious Nutrition Solutions. We have great sourcing and our Phenibut works well.

    These damn boards get more and more like a scary camp fire story everyday. EVERYTHING IN MODERATION. Then you don't have to worry about addiction. It's not meant to be taken everyday if you use responsibly you will be fine.

    Sweet dreams.

    I have used SNS brand and it worked well for me. And I agree some things are exaggerated but it is as you said used in moderation most things are fairly safe.

    1g of SNS phenibut does great for me. I dont know what brand youre using though, so the dosing may vary a bit.

    It knocks me out. But I do not use daily. Once, twice a week. Or if I can't sleep. Don't rely on it daily it can become a substance you rely on.

    I always use melatonin. 6mg or 5 mg depending what I buy.

    I have to use 2.3 to get any effect and have to have it spaced out at least 2 days or tolerance builds fast.
