Do you use phenibut regularly and if so what dose do you take in a day?

I take between 10 and 20grams a day for about 2 weeks then i take a week off. The withdrawals are hell but the benefits are worth feeling crappy for a few days if im going to feel anxiety free for 2 weeks. I have generalized/social anxiety disorder so phenibut is a godsend for me.

One issue that I have is after a few days on phenibut my feet and ankles swell up really bad, but again id rather be anxiety free than have normal feet.

>20gram a day

Jesus, and I thought I was overdoing it when I took 6g in a day. How long have you been doing this for?

i've been using phenibut for about 6 months now. Tolerance builds so fast that 20g in a day doesn't feel like much.

Fair enough. It certainly does build tolerance fast. Would you mind describing the WD symptoms and timeline a bit? I've been wondering if I'm experiencing minor phenibut WDs or if it's just ongoing effects of quitting opioids.

The WD symptoms i get is rebound anxiety and i feel all doom and gloom. The WD's last about 4 days then im back to normal.

Damn, that's what I figured. Pretty much indistinguishable from the later half of opi WD then. Thanks for the info.

Piggybacking on this thread with a question:

Does anyone else become emotionally unstable while using phenibut? It didn't happen from the start, but after about a week of near-daily phenibut use, I'd randomly get this primal fear of anything nostalgic while high. And if I thought about it too much I'd start crying; not sobbing, just lots of tears and worry.

Not really like you describe, but I find it can make me more short tempered, impulsive and impatient.
A friend of mine who has anger issues has really lost his shit on phenibut a couple of times, broke a car window with his fist, broke his fist on a wall etc.

i have experienced impulsiveness and impatience. When i would take 20 grams i would want to do everything right now and not wait for anything but it wasnt really an issue for me. I'm not really an angry person so no issues there. Going through WDs thought thinking about anything is negative though

A fear of anything nostalgic?

I think I kind of got this in withdrawal before but maybe you could elaborate more. It was like good memories from the past would come rushing back to me and they would be so powerful/intrusive it would almost knock me off my feet, then I would snap back to reality and realize I was alone in withdrawal and kind of freak the fuck out lol...I hate phenibut withdrawal.

I also got some form of akithisia in-between doses where I couldn't calm down and it felt like a rush of chemical displeasure was washing over me, sometimes causing me to pace. That was always scary to go through because it felt like it could last forever while it's happening which would drive anyone nuts.

Now that you mention it, I had some of this too. I'd be researching shit on my computer, very focused, and any time a page took too long to load I would get abnormally pissed off.

>It was like good memories from the past would come rushing back to me and they would be so powerful/intrusive it would almost knock me off my feet
I guess this isn't far off. For me, the fear and crying were triggered hardest by media that reminded me of my childhood, like the Law & Order theme song. For some reason, I also imagined what it would be like to have kids and try to protect them from injury and trauma as they grow up, and it was fucking terrifying.

It's odd because I'd definitely expect those symptoms from opioid or GABAergic withdrawal, but they only happened 2-6 hours after taking the phenibut, during the high itself. I also felt some withdrawal symptoms while taking a break from phenibut, but they were very minor and I don't remember emotional instability being a part.

I believe a decent dose of phenibut greatly increases empathy, making me more emotional about things but overall it improves my mood greatly, even if i cry for a minute or two im still pretty happy.
