    Phenibut for anxiety


    I was wondering if anybody has taking phenibut and noticed any effects on their stress/anxiety level. As of late ive found out that i may have anxiety myself and id like to see if this is worth a go. Any feedback is appreciated.

    Absolutely...Phenibut is great for anxiety, but tolerance issues are there. Phenibut also has its own withdrawal problems (as do any GABAergics), but compared to a panic attack, well worth the chance.

    Phenibut is highly recommended.

    I totally agree with Dsade. If you have bad anxiety problems then 2 grams at once will help, or you can take 1 gram twice a day. To combat tolerance issues try to take Phenibut no more than 3-4 days in a row max followed by the equal amount of time off as a "wash out" period.

    Phenibut works


    I only take it every other day due to the tolerance/withdrawal risk.

    The first time I took it I took a gram and I was a little loopy and I didn't get much done at work. I wouldn't drink alcohol on the days you take it.

    I have used it to help with sleep, and have been sleeping so deep it's amazing. I also took it once in a day, but I was late at all my classes, and I didn't seem to care, so I just used it for sleep 3 x a week...

    I know this may be a bit off but what about FocusXT or ClearEdge? I understand those are more focus/concentration based but wouldn't that be a bit better in some cases? Just a thought.

    I would suppose it depends on the context of the anxiety. If this is something l like Test anxiety...fear of failure...then something like Clear Edge would definitely help.

    Exactly, nootropics if you need to be "on" and phenibut products if you need to relax or be social.

    Try a good quality Magnolia (high in magnolol).

    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!
