i've never heard of forcing NT's across the BBB by just taking more. GABA doesn't cross. amino acids precursors like Joe said, do...but even then, anxiety is caused by low Serotonin, not low GABA. that's how come the drugs of choice are SSRI's, not GABA supplements.acidmale69 said:You have read wrong. GABA does in fact cross the BBB but not that effectively. However in large doses 2 X 500 MG or so, it does make a difference.
so in that case, it seems like you're saying that one should not take GABA precursors (l-glutamine) since Lamictal is an antiglutamate agent.Homeskooled said:I just wanted to come to acidmale's defense. GABA will cross the blood brain barrier. It isnt as efficient as taking its precursor, but its precursor is glutamine, and not only does it turn into several other transmitters, but the reason which Lamictal was chosen by Mt. Sinai was because it seemed to inhibit glutamine activity.
did you miss this quote from your link above that proves MY point?acidmale69 said:By the way rula, here is the website tht prooves my point.
I know this is super old but I just gotta know, did that treatment work? Is your dpdr gone?I am starting to personally try all these things. A famous doctor (that wants to remain anonymous) I am currently speaking with is telling me all these things because she has seen results.
To get rid of anxiety symptoms which cause DP/DR you have to do the following for 8+ weeks religiously.
300 mg of 5HTP a day
2X 500 mg of GABA a day
All symptoms WILL leave in aprox. 2 months
This is the biological aspect of things.
The other thing is that you can't be on meds like SSRI's or antidepressants while you are doing this because those are the things that may cause the DP/DR in the first place.
On a personal note, I startd doing what the doctor told me and I am down to .5 mg of ativan before bedtime and my anxiety is slowly getting better.
And on a psychological note, please remember that in order to cure anxiety, DP/DR you need to not think about it, not come on this site, and do things 'normal' people do (all of you are normal including myself, but you know what I mean) and try to be happy. Get a boyfriend/girlfriend that loves you and that will take care of you, go to the gym ect. It is hard cause anxiety feeds on itself.
By the way rula, here is the website tht prooves my point.
