. There we have represented some key points on how to be sure of the nootropics safety. Among those points, we have mentioned the importance of EFSA and FDA position regarding a certain nootropic. How is it related to Phenibut? Well, according to the FDA, Phenibut cannot be approved as a medication because of its side effects and other risks.
The most common side effects are gastrointestinal and related to the nervous system: nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, hallucinations, dizziness, paranoia, hangover effect, anxiety, fatigue, lack of balance, sleepiness, euphoria or confusion. If you overdose, you may provoke trouble breathing, tremors or unconsciousness. In some cases, people experience decreased blood pressure, increased sweating, a lower blood temperature or even convulsions.
It is necessary to emphasize that the side effects depend on the person, the dosage and various interactions with other active substances (for example, alcohol or drugs).
What are the withdrawal symptoms of Phenibut?
It is necessary to mention that there are no clinically prepared treatments or explanations about the Phenibut withdrawal symptoms. However, users mostly report these symptoms: hallucinations, sleeping disorders, muscle aches, sweating, nausea, panic attacks, depression, decreased appetite, mood changes, dizziness, lowered body temperature, lack of motivation or other previously mentioned side effects but more frequently and intensely. Those who already have Phenibut addiction also relieve such symptoms as denying or hiding their dependence. According to research made in 2013, withdrawal symptoms begin about 3 or 4 hours after taking Phenibut and lasts up to 2 weeks.
People experiencing withdrawal symptoms often try to raise their dosage due to alleviation of side effects. However, such an effect will continue not for a long time and after that, the side effects get worse.
What can help to prevent side effects and reduce withdrawal symptoms?
Firstly, to prevent side effects it is undoubtedly important to follow the rules of dosage. Start from the smallest dosages (for instance, 250 mg twice a day) to find out what suits you. We also highly recommend taking breaks from using (avoid raising your dosage more than 4g a week). If you have decided to end with Phenibut, do not try suddenly stopping - that may provoke other negative symptoms. Self-control has to be the main participant.
But if you are already facing withdrawal symptoms, be patient. Work with your dosages, try to slowly decrease it and start taking longer breaks. Small steps are better than surrender. Another lifebuoy could be other medication, such as magnesium, melatonin and others. And lastly, avoid stress, because stressful situations worsens withdrawal symptoms.
