GABA...dosing...how much do YOU take?

I'm currently taking a total of 6 grams a day. 3 in the A.M.(4 capsules), 3 in the P.M. before bed. I'm thinking of upping that to 9 grams a day total. Still splitting it twice a day. What about you guys who are taking this stuff? How much a day and how do you dose it?
 
I'm up to 3 750mg pills at night and 2 750mg in the morning. I'm going to stay here for awhile. You could probably take up to 18g per day, although I am staying were I'm at. I'm fine as is. If I think I need more, I might just take a couple of weeks off instead and come back.

I'm taking 3 capsules before bed and 1 in the morning (thinking about upping this), but hey, I'm a little guy, it probably wouldn't take much. I think you should take pills compared to your body weight, personally, cause it just makes sense. Of course I dunno how many mgs per pound or anything.

8, what's your rationale for increasing dosage? From your posts and some other articles I gather 2g/day would be enough to do the job right?
 
Well, I lost the euphoric feeling. Now it just keeps me calm and levels my mood. I do miss feeling like I am king of the world but it is doing its job still. I can concentrate and so forth without my daily Adderall medication. Nothing unexpected, I'm not depressed or have anxiety so I'm not complaining.

Oh, are you on depression medication? The euphoric thingy makes it sound like you have a totally different goal on mind with GABA :D
What are the parameters you use to keep track of effects/contraindications? I guess the foll. are ok? -->
Positive -
----------
1)effects on sleep (on and off GABA)
2)BP
3)Moods/anxiety/depression
4)%Body fat and weight - ripped look
5)Dick size!!
6)Muscle size (sizeof arms, chest, thighs, etc)
7)Skin looks younger

Negative -
-----------
1)Breathlessness
2)Bone dimensions - esp at the forehead, bones might grow in width, not in length
3)Protruding stomach - increased size of liver, pancreas, stomach
4)Weakness - HGH in excessive dosage is reported to negate the above positive side effects

With respect to the above, what are your observations so far? Anything significant? I suggest you keep track of all symptoms b4 jacking up dosage... good luck!
 
Adderall is a psycho-stimulant that I take for ADHD. There have been little to no side effects besides breathlessness as far as I am concerned. I do appreciate your concern but I'm a grown man working toward a degree in biochemistry. I don't feel and there is, or evidence of, any bad side effects involving GABA.

I will watch my dosage and, as I stated in earlier posts, will discontinue use for 2 weeks if I feel the effectiveness is waining rather than up my dose.

What if you like took some tryptofan or 5-htp stuff along with it? What do you think would happen other than your hread exploding into a Skittle Rainbow?:eek:

#2 So your telling us you have some mild case of acromeglia from taking it?

Hehehehehhehehehehehe....I might have to try that!

No problem man. It is all you. Now, I'll be over to watch if your head explodes with Sno Caps instead. God, I miss them. Usually have to hit the movies for them.

You think that seratonon stuff would work with the GABA? Skittle time or nice combo?|(

What does this GABA do exactly?
 
Calms you down. It inhibits shit from interacting with your nervous system. Which is good.

Big technical explaination, I don't understand either but here it is for the Brainiacs.

Inhibitory synapses
The neurotransmitter at inhibitory synapses hyperpolarizes the postsynaptic membrane.

Example: gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) at certain synapses in the brain. Binding of GABA
to GABA-A receptors on the postsynaptic neuron opens up ligand-gated chloride (Cl-) channels. This is a fast response - taking only about 1 millisecond.

to GABA-B receptors activates an internal G protein and a "second messenger" that leads to the opening of nearby potassium (K+) channels. As you might expect, this is a slower response, taking as long as 1 second.

In both cases, the resulting facilitated diffusion of ions (chloride IN; potassium OUT) increases the membrane potential (to as much as -80 mv). This increased membrane potential is called an inhibitory postsynaptic potential (IPSP) because it counteracts any excitatory signals that may arrive at that neuron.

A hyperpolarized neuron appears to have an increased threshold. Actually, the threshold voltage (about -50 mv) has not changed. It is simply a question of whether the depolarization produced by excitatory synapses on the cell minus the hyperpolarizing effect of inhibitory synapses can reach this value or not.

Hyperpolarization
Despite their name, some neurotransmitters inhibit the transmission of nerve impulses. They do this by opening
chloride channels and/or
potassium channels in the plasma membrane.
In each case, opening of the channels increases the membrane potential by
letting negatively-charged chloride ions (Cl-) IN and
positively-charged potassium ions (K+) OUT
This hyperpolarization is called an inhibitory postsynaptic potential (IPSP).

Although the threshold voltage of the cell is unchanged, it now requires a stronger excitatory stimulus to reach threshold.

Example: Gamma amino butyric acid (GABA). This neurotransmitter is found in the brain and inhibits nerve transmission by both mechanisms:

binding to GABA-A receptors opens chloride channels in the neuron.
binding to GABA-B receptors opens potassium channels

Oh...I dont get it :confused: :confused: :confused:

I know but I am trying to get a concise answer on what it has to do with your dick.
 
Quite possibly nothing at all. I don't think GABA will help with Penis Enlargement at all. GABA will help your mood and your body look better.

Oh Shit. With your dick, I have no idea other than maybe making you calm and stopping Pre-mature ejacualtion by relaxing you. But that is a real guess on my part. I think the HGH that it claims to release helps your dick heal up faster. Just a guess again.
