So, when I first started taking Phenibut, I felt like I was a non-responder. I stuck to the recommended dosage & followed the protocol of only taking it for a few days, then taking time off. Do some research & you'll find info about it's addiction potential & horrible withdrawals. So I played it safe, & thought it wasn't working. Then I upped the dosage a bit.
I've found that 3 grams is my sweet spot. Gets me nice & relaxed, & helps me fall asleep, without even trying. I've always had a higher tolerance than most for medications, alcohol, etc. Phenibut is no different. And after taking 3 grams at night, I can still somewhat feel the effects the next day, not making me tired, but just taking the edge off of my social anxiety.
As far as the scary addiction stories go, I've experienced no withdrawal when I don't take it. I take it 4-5 nights a week to help me sleep when I need to be up for work the next day. I don't take it on my two days off. I recently took a vacation from work & didn't take any phenibut for 9 days; no issues.
If you suffer from anxiety, insomnia or both & are looking for something non-prescription to help, try this. It works!
