I heard positive reviews about phenibut for social anxiety and that it has benzo like effect but also makes u energized .

I found it only in pill form 90 capsules each has 250 mg phenibut. So how good is it ? And what dose ? And does it work ?

This may be my last hope before slipping into alcohol (which benzos and lyrica and ssri failed to relax me as alcohol) . So i hope its really the miracle drug they say it is.

highly suggest you do research and make sure you get it from a reputable source
keep in mind many users exp building tolerance very quickly for some it takes over 500mg maybe even more to feel any therapeutic relief from it
not meant to be used every day maybe once every 2 to 3 days
and it does work but its not a miracle cure by any
trust me you do not wanna go down the alcohol route

I started using Phenibut 4 months ago. With a dose of 4gram...I ended up so dizzy I could barely walk for 2 days and sleeping nonstop..........I built a tolerance to 6grams....and felt good for a month or two......

Then one night I eyeballed a dose..which I admit was probably 10+ grams. My girlfriend could not wake me for 2 days. She had her dog licking my armpits, face, body and was screaming at me and when I finally woke up on day 2, I supposedly told her not to fucking touch me and get the fuck away....I don't remember it...at all.....

It will seriously black you out and cause nausea if you do not get a scale and measure your doses properly. I now take no more than 1gram per 24 hours. Or I have trouble waking up.

It's relaxing...yes...sedating yes...anxiety relieving...I guess it can be yah but effects for me have died after a while.

It's basically like having a really strong benzo that makes you walk like your a drunken fool, act like one, yet get none of the good feeling of it and you feel very nauseas...it lasts for 24+ hours in high doses.

If you buy it ...buy a scale that can measure from 10mg and up...do not eyeball doses. Do not take more than 500mg the first time...you may REALLY regret it and scare someone by becoming like I was.

I dont find it's "habit forming"...I got sick of it after 4 months, and rarely take it.

IT"S VERY ACIDIC as well..and doesn't feel like it would be good to take more than 500-1000mg a day without destroying your organs....drink tons of water as well....it'll dehydrate you bigtime..

If you're rich..maybe the Free Acid form is okay and will be less acidic but I can't buy that crap.

Good luck.

I've taken phenibut weekly for over 3 years. no more than 700mg in one dose once per week. I'm at a bit of a turning point with it at the moment. 700mg has served me well for all this time but it just doesn't work as well any more. Time to ditch it, then.

Phenibut, for me, was a life saver regards social anxiety. I lived a hermetical existence for over ten years, then I was forced to socialise once a week and phenibut helped me a lot. I woke up full of radiance and ideas. I walked into social situations with not a hint of anxiety. In fact, I loved socialising. I loved talking to people, and I became quite a 'figure' in my group.

It faded in time and I refuse to up my dose. Upping the dose for same effect is a no-no...don't ever do it. One rule you should monitor forever with drug use: Never up the dose to enjoy the same effect. Just give up, look back with affection, then move onto something else.

Anyway, for me Phenibut was great for insomnia, great for social anxiety, and initially it was great for ideas. In the mornings I found my head to be brimming with clarity and positivity. For people who suffer none of these problems, they'll probably say Phenibut doesn't work, but if you have any of these probs, take it...take it and enjoy, for as long as you can.

It's time for me to say goodbye to Phenibut for a while. Maybe a year or two, then hopefully I can return and enjoy a new phase...at the same dose.

Try 500mg once a week. Don't take it every day. Don't up the dose for same effect. Enjoy :)

dude, just GOOGLE it and you can find Phenibut EVERYWHERE; no idea why this board is against just putting the source out there but def. get POWDER FORM!

you'll need 1-2 grams for your first try; stay AWAY FROM PILL FORM! no need; just get the powder, man.

I was a heavy GHB addict and stepped away from it and been using Phenibut since 07. its a great drug for what it does and considering its LEGAL; thats even better, man!

if you have questions, just PM me.

Why is it so important to stay away from pill form?

I was thinking if I tried it I might try the pills instead of the powder because I am not sure whether the new scale I bought is going to be easy to use or whether i might mess up weighing my own dosage and I've heard that taking a little bit too much can be a HUGE problem.

One guy mentioned doing it and sleeping for 2 days.

I wanted to message you to talk about this but it seems you don't accept PMs.

So do you know anything about Phenibut's safety profile?

Did you ever have bloodwork done after doing Phenibut and did it turn out normal?

Did you ever sleep for excessive periods of time because of Phenibut? (I heard one guy took too much and slept for 2 days)

Did you find it was easy to accidentally take too much?

And how many days a week did you find you could dose on it without becoming physically dependent?

I have some of the problems you are talking about and want to try it but I don't want to get in trouble as I'm not sure anyone knows how safe this stuff is.

the pills suck, thats why. completely different type high.

you dont need a scale or anything; it comes up a scooper; each scoop is usually 300mg; you want to take between 1G to 1.5G for your first try; so just put in 4-5 scoops and you'll be fine. trust me, GET POWDER!

Been hooked on it daily for 8 months. It was fun at first lol made me have no anxiety whatsoever. Makes sex interesting. Now Im tapering off and dealing with weird side effects and withdrawal symptoms.

Im a drug addict tho. So I mean, it happens.

I recommend the crystal form from the most known supplier there is. A quick Google search for "phenibut" will pop up with their ad.

It's nothing like a benzo.
Feels more like an improved baclofen or stripped ghb.
Don't expect to much it helps but is far from a miracle.
The first time don't go over 2000 mg.
It can make you realy sick.
Watch out redosing it Has a very slow onset.
If it works don't use it daily.it gives fast tolerance to it's good effects an can cause a Hell of a withdrawal.
So spare it for situations.it would be stupid for wasting its effect by over using.

If you're cool with gambling with everything on the line, then go ahead. You MIGHT only use it occasionally, but then again this is a drugs forum. So I'd guesstimate you have a 1 in 5 chance of not getting dependent. 3 days. You get a tolerance in 3 days. It only gets worse from there. I would recommend almost anything else over it. I think the fact you can't die is the only positive. First time is enjoyable and then downhill. It's like a great night between the sheets, but then surprise, you've got herpes.

The fact that it's for social anxiety, I missed that, ya, there's no chance. You're hooked. I'm not trying to be an a-hole, I'm serious. I've ran across hundreds of phenibut addicts who started for social anxiety. Just get some good kava. As good? No. Sustainable? Yes. Let's you keep your life the way it is? Yes.

It's mainly to prevent unscrupulous vendors from posting links to their own sites.

I find phenibut to be a very solid, long-lasting anxiolytic, that feels more natural than benzos (although it can give you a feeling of being *too* relaxed or overly disinhibited if you overdo it, but at least you'll still have the lucidity to realise it) and doesn't sedate you much, if at all. It's hands down the best thing I have ever taken for social anxiety. Tolerance was never as much of an issue for me as others have described, certainly nothing like benzos, and I find a 2g dose daily still works extremely well today.

I've done some research on phenibut, it was what actually got me into OTC supplements, nootropics etc.
My personal experience. It starts off great, but you build tolerance super fast. .5gs first day, 1.5g the second and 2+g the third. After that took a week off but very mild effects. Shouldnt use more than 2 days in a row. Take at least a week off.

When taken it made the person very social, less anxious. Intensifies other things if mixed and not always recommend. Great for once in a while, not something that can be used too often. http://serotonia.co/nootropics-phenibut.html

If you aren't careful, yeah, phenibut is a ticket to hell.

Phenibut has changed my life. I've struggled with severe anxiety since I was really young (10 years) and I'm now 29. I've tried medications prescribed by psychiatrists that ended up giving so many terrible side effects making me worse off. I came to the conclusion I was going to struggle the rest of my life... Then I found Phenibut.

Phenibut takes the edge off when I would typically be stressed, have anxiety, obsessive thoughts, etc.. I've had several family and friends comment on the obvious changes they have seen in me. All positive!!

I follow the recommended dosage for Phenibut. I'm continually amazed at the results.

VENDOR RECOMMENDATION IS NOT PERMITTED
