i've been taking phenibut off-and-on for really quite a long time, but my latest stint is only two weeks old.
i intend to never take it again, actually - i see no real or good purpose for it. for now i'm trying to figure out the best tapering off regimen.
i actually started up because i had a stupid and intense drug cocktail two weeks ago that left me with unbearable anxiety and phenibut was the closest and only available thing to help. it's possible the anxiety i'm feeling now is residual effects from that along with generalized anxiety in addition to the phenibut. here's an approximation (very approximate) of my latest two weeks usage (before that haven't taken phenibut for at least a month i believe):
yesterday i didn't have any, and then today i was extremely bad so i had an extra .5 which doesn't feel nice but much better that i was feeling prior to taking it (felt like hell).
what's the best way to taper off? i don't want to drag it out too long but also want to preserve my sanity and be able to at least partially function at work. i have l-theanine at my disposal and can purchase other supplements recommended for this. i feel like my recent phenibut use is way, way milder that what others here have gone through when they talk about phenibut withdrawal -- at the same time, i'm feeling very real symptoms and i also feel like my brain is far from optimal from years of substance mis-use that it's more susceptible to more damage. anyway, thoughts?
