Potent Anxiety Relief
Phenibut & Clonazepam
Citation:   Bi-polar. "Potent Anxiety Relief: An Experience with Phenibut & Clonazepam (exp95798)". Dec 15, 2016.

0.5 mg oral Pharms - Clonazepam (pill / tablet)
  2 g oral Smarts - Phenibut (powder / crystals)
I suffer from extreme social anxiety and panic attacks. After reading many reviews and experiences with Phenibut, I ordered some online.

Usually I ingest 1mg Clonazepam and insufflate 1.5mg Alprazolam daily to control my anxiety and panic attacks. When I take Phenibut, the need for the benzodiazapines is greatly reduced.

In the morning I take .5mg Clonazepam and 2g-3g Phenibut. After consuming 2g of Phenibut powder, in 2 hours I am relaxed, capable of going out socially, and carrying out normal daily activities with a general sense of well-being, without the need for my benzos. In fact, I feel unusually peaceful and confident.

Sometimes I feel a little dizzy with clouded vision, similar to smoking weed. I am still capable of carrying out daily activities including exercise. The feeling is much stronger than taking my usual meds, however, I have a high tolerance for the benzos because I have been taking them for years. The Phenibut bliss allows me to sleep, even when consuming high doses of caffeine, which I generally can't tolerate.

The feeling of well-being carries over into the next day until the afternoon. If consuming more than 2g-3g of Phenibut, I become nauseated and hungover the next morning.

Because tolerance develops quickly, I have been cautious of using Phenibut for more than 2 days, and discontinuing use for 2-3 days while taking my normal dose of benzodiazepines.

Phenibut is effective in relieving anxiety, and as an alternative to benzodiazepines. I have used Phenibut for certain relief when a prescription is running low before refill time.
