I currently deal with depression and anxiety and have been in search of any alternative treatment to alleviate my symptoms. I take 90 mgs of Cymbalta, 4 mgs of Lorazepam, and 20 mgs of Ambien per day. I somehow tend to run out of my scripts a little early every month and coming off of the Lorazepam gives me crippling rebound anxiety. Nervous nausea, not able to get out of bed and so on. Through a little research I came to find this magical sugar like substance that reportedly works amazing for anxiety with very few side effects.

I purchased this Phenibut from a trusted web vendor.
I haven't had any Lorazepam or Ambien for about 2 weeks.

I begin my experience with 500 mgs in some ginger ale (alone Phenibut is bitter and dry). I give it about an hour and am comfortable, not feeling much effect.

I then dose another 500mgs, give it an hour... still feeling pretty normal.

Becoming comfortable with this new substance I take another 1000 mgs.

Wait a bit longer and take another 1000 mgs.

I now start to feel like a million bucks. Of course I have to push it, I take another 1000 mgs. Now I have ingested approximately 4 grams of Phenibut.

The best way to describe the way I felt is like taking a nice hefty dose of Adderall and a bar of Xanax... extremely energetic and sharp yet calm as could be. Not edgy and sweaty how Adderall alone would make me feel. Having bad anxiety Adderall cocaine even coffee can sometimes make me very uncomfortable leading to a bad experience. Phenibut has yet to make me feel bad at all. I dont know the long term affects or what withdrawal symptoms may occur, but right now I feel like superman.
