In the UK we are seeing a lot of abuse of GABA analogues. Baclofen and phenibut are turning up in autopsies more and more.Lyrica is pregabalin which was mentioned in the original post. I dont know why, but they seem to be looking for something novel.
Back in 2012 I had phenibut, and didn't use it until 2013. In small doses it was fine. In large doses (over 1.5g) the side effects were awful, fuzzy "yellow/orange tinted" vision, along with visual snow more than normal, along with dizziness and I won't forget this one - tachycardia and nausea. I ended up throwing away that shit, it just wasn't worth it. I'm not at all surprised that people are actually dying from mixing this stuff with other potent drugs, especially anything involving opiates or benzos or alcohol.Every time I use 1,4-b or phenibut it feel like I ingested a toxin.
Yeah, even in the beginning when I first started using phenibut anything over 1.2g would make me sick. Although I continued to use phenibut sporadically over the next 12 years I also began to heavily abuse gbl and 1,4-b. Needless to say it was not a pleasant time and towards the end all I got were terrible side effects followed by ungodly withdrawals. Between the Benzos and Gbl abuse I definitely caused irreparable psychological damage.Back in 2012 I had phenibut, and didn't use it until 2013. In small doses it was fine.
