  1. Best supplements for social anxiety?


    I've used phenibut and it works really well but tolerance is a quick issue with it. Have used picamilon but it's effects are more similar to cannabis to me. I've noticed some decent effects with a ALCAR,Taurine,Tyrosine mix but looking for something I can take on a regular basis without fast tolerance. I'm gonna try some powerfull to see what enhancing dopamine does but i'm also looking for some other suggestions. thanks

  3. adaptogenic herbs like ashwagandha or rhodiola could be helpful...also magneisum, holy basil, and relora might be worth looking into.

  4. I agree with all of the suggstions, also gaba and PowerFull.

    I'm the opposite, uppers like venom take my anxiety away the best. Just pure energy so you can't even worry about anxiety (yes this is rare so don't take this as a sugestion)

  8. re. phenibut......yes the body build tolerance to it real quick. If you want to keep taking it then increase the dose by roughly 20-25% to get an effect.

  9. what about beta-blockers? Have you tried them?

    I would stay away from benzos unless absolutely needed.

  10. PAXIL. At least if it is a serious issue.

  11. warning...most central nervous system depressants will, if taken for considerable amounts of time, result in weight gain and from I gather....these forums seem to be about get lean and staying trim

  12. Inositol

    Agreed, but ones underlying phsychological issue is far greater an issue than getting lean. That is why the disclaimer about being a serious issue was on there. This forums number one reason is to stay safe.

    That's what i'm looking for. Need to be more social. I've lost my fire. Life,depression, ext.. has really taken the life out of me. If I can get myself going and actually want to talk to people the rest will take it's course.

    I'm gonna be starting a pharm grade tribulus and avena next week. Will these do the same things as maca?

    lack of social interaction is what likely got you here in the first place and thats huge that you realize this. depression and not much appreciation for life are common effects for those who isolate themselves from the world. bodybuilding is a demanding, selfish lifestyle so this result isnt uncommon. do you have friends or family near you that you can connect more with?

    as far as supps go, i have to agree with an above poster in that stims like venom and stim x make me wanna talk to everybody. the extreme energy and focus has me telling everybody whats on my mind no matter how well i know them.

    that is a really good idea! yes, he can meet people (especially the ladies) there and feel good about himself knowing he is helping others. this will send a sense of reward to the brain to make you feel better. more importantly, it will keep you busy and distracted from thinking about personal problems so they will not be as important to you. i gotta 2nd this option. definately worth a shot.

  22. hahah.. i don't mean i'm not around people all the time. I'm a personal trainer! I don't need to get myself "out there" so to speak. Social anxiety is just something I've delt with my whole life. I got into this field to help me with social skills. It has helped a lot but it doesn't mean my social anxieties go away. That will always remain. I am active in church as well. Because i'm in such a social environment my stress levels are high at all times. It's something you wouldn't quite get unless you have social anxieties. I'm just trying to find some other supplements to help me deal better. That is all! I don't have problems with girls or getting attention. I get too much of it! I want to deal with it better.

  24. oh, ok. sorry i misinterpreted your problem. i wouldnt depend on a supplement for this cause, these kind of skills can easily be developed. once you have great social skills, the anxiety will disappear.

    theoretically speaking, anything that increases GABA production will help you (neurobalance, phenibut, or some other GABA agonist. benzos and alcohol achieve this but are not your safest options). if its that big of a problem, ask your doc to write a prescription for you.

    I think I get it. I have a hard time going from the computer to groups of people. Kinda like my brain has to be reprogrammed. I dont believe it is a one-way approach. The supps may help you feel more sociable; but they are not addressing what makes you feel it. You may wanna talk to a therapist. May be more helpful in the long run than fixing* it with OTC stuff.

    Trust me, years of therapy dont lie.

    Ohh believe me when I discovered alcohol at age 16 it truly was the best thing on earth. I used it for a good solid couple years before its effects started to fade out. It made me social and I contribute alcohol to every girl I've hooked up with or became close to. The problem is it don't work anymore and 2 it just makes me sick even after 2 drinks. I used it socially but wasn't a alcoholic. Alcohol truly is the best social anxiety drug out there. It's also one of the worst for your physical and mental health. Never tried benzo's. Possible risk of withdrawl seizures with these I believe? Phenibut was the best thing i've tried but again the tolerance issue hits fast. I'll probably cycle neurobalance one of these days. Was just checking to see what has worked well for other people.

  27. I would go with a few light beers. Amstel Light, Heineken Light and Beck's Light are all good tasting beers with low calories + they take the edge off after a tough day of work. Xanax (.5 mg) is also an option. This works awesome and can cure almost any anxiety. However, I suppose you would need a prescription for this. Have you tried Buspar. Buspar is by prescription only, but less regulated in the U.S. You can find Buspar at most overseas pharmacies as it is not a controlled substance here in the states. If you have insurance, just go to your doc and tell him you sweat alot and feel anxious at your job and when talking to people. He will probably give you a benzo prescript. and it shouldn't cost more than $30. You are good to go.

  28. Ignatia - Homeopathy

  29. NON-SUPPLEMENT options are cognitive Behavioral therapy(VERY EFFEctive for this, far higher success then most drus ) and hypnosis has recently become popular again. Honestly the drug route is very unproven as brain science is very shaky when dealin with matters of neuro psychology. My father did neurosciene research at princeton(PHD Level, worked under one of the pioneers, and is published himself) and he has always told me they just only know so much. don't let people convince you that sciecne has mastered neuropsycholgy, I assure you they havent

    good luck btw and it's always good to remember nobody's starin at you they're to busy worrying about their own miserable lives(sarcasm)
