What is Phenibut
Phenibut (beta-phenyl-gamma-aminobutyric acid) was discovered in Russia during the 1960's. It is a derivative of the neurotransmitter GABA and is capable of passing the blood brain barrier.
Phenibut is regarded as a nootropic for its ability to have an affect of various neurological functions. It is a gamma receptor agonist and also causes the release of GABA.
Phenibut XT Dosage Notes:
Phenibut XT's effects can be dosage dependant, with the typical effects of phenibut being felt in 1.5 to 2 hours, although some people notice effects sooner.
Suggested usage ranges from 500 to 2000 mg, divided over 2 to 3 daily dosages. The half life of this compound is approximately 5 hours so most individuals attempt to space their dosages throughout the day.
Tolerance can develop to some of the effects of phenibut, although it is reported by many that it does not develop to the nootropic effect.
To prevent tolerance from occurring, many people take phenibut for durations of no more than 2 weeks, followed by an equal time off. Alternatively, some individuals simply do not use phenibut everyday, depending on the purpose of usage.
Also note that effects to phenibut can vary by the person per dosage, so it is suggested that people start with a smaller dosage and work their way up in order to find their own proper dosing.
Some general dosage observations:
As a Short Term Sleep Aid – average dosing is 1 to 2 capsules approximately 2 hours before bedtime.
