For normal autism person how much mg dose we can try for minimum side effect. age17/wt 50
I took a 750 mg GABA pill by error, and I could not control my balance, I was very disturbed mentally and physically for at least an hour.
My wife is taking 2 or 3 times the dose (2250) and she claims it is for sleeping but Her insomnia never improved noticeably
She continues to be unstable, calling me with anxiety attacks, having all kind of discomforts and thinking she has every possible disease. I don’t see that taking GABA dies anything it advertised for, but my wife seems to be addicted to it and cannot quit, in spite of the fact she says it is not a drug and it is not addicting. She can only quit for 1 or 2 days when she forgot to renew her bottle
I am very worried about her taking this pill for many many years, especially after my experience with one pill only.
Do you have any advice?
The adverse reactions you experienced might have been caused by the nocebo effect. The fear of potential side effects is enough to cause transient bio-chemical changes to your brain that might manifest themselves as physical symptoms.
Below are some arguments that might support this theory.
1. You took this supplement by error.
2. It was a one time dose.
3. You took a rather low dose.
4. The same substance is synthesized by our body.
5. Gaba reportedly has difficulty crossing the brain blood barrier.
Of course the theory can only be verified by a rigorous double blind test, in which you repeatedly take this supplement or an identical looking placebo and report any side effects.
I have taken 750mg pills 3-4times a day without any issue, couple months now. Time to time I feel bit tired, but that’s with the pill and without the pill.
No noticeably effect on me. I use it for inhibit inflammation and for immunomodulator effect, but thats another case.
According to research 2015: “Study of GABA in Healthy Volunteers: Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics.”
“GABA was rapidly absorbed (Tmax: 0.5 ~ 1 h) with the half-life (t1/2) of 5 h. No accumulation was observed after repeated oral GABA administration for 7 days.” and “Subjects with repeated dosing showed an elevated incidence of minor adverse events in comparison to placebo or the single dosing period, most notably transient discomforts such as dizziness and sore throat. However, there were no serious adverse events observed throughout the study. ”
It seem to be safe supplement, ofcourse, individuals can react differently.
I hope this helps.
I take gaba but not every day because it makes me feel drowsy in the mornings (I take one capsule before going to bed, 500mgs) it helps me with my anxiety and desperation up to a more bearable degree. Let me know of any voluntary research quests.
I’ve taken gaba a couple times in hopes of optimizing fat metabolism, but the side effects were too intense: dizziness, nausea, excessive sleepiness after more than 12 hours.
She’s just likes the highs bro (;
I take 3000 mg (3 grams) at one time. But I know I cannot do that all the time. Only when I feel super anxious or low. My fear is that taking high doses regularly will cauae the brain to he unable to produces the proper amount off Gaba on its own. Which could lead to a living hell. I would seriously consider having you’re wife really read up on neurotransmitter amd emotional/mood health.
I take 500mg once a day and I have all side effects and have troubles sleeping. Probably I should take lower dosage.
