Comment:
I have been using this product for about five months , to aid restful sleep. However , acting on advice from a pharmacist , I take only one 200mg tablet each evening , for 5 days continuously , and then abstain for 2 days before starting again , to avoid psychological dependence. In my experience , failure to strictly follow these guide-lines can result in depression and erratic behaviour.

I started taking Gaba for anxiety attacks and have been taking it both in the morning and evening for two months now. Amazingly it has worked great for the anxiety attacks but in the last few weeks I have felt unbelievably tired and exhausted all day. I think the problem is that I was taking 2 capsules in the morning and 1-2 at night. I couldn't understand why I felt so tired and exhausted all ... Show Full Comment

Wondering if over sensitive pain receptors in my hands would be due to using GABA? Anyone had any experience of pain in your hands? Otherwise great for treating anxiety.

Comment:
I have suffered from chronic pain that would interfere with my ability to sleep. My pain specialist recommended GABA with melatonin and I have had great results. I sleep deeply, stay asleep yet wake up after 7 hrs. refreshed. This helped tremendously with my pain and also helped me with my short term memory. Insomnia and not sleeping and dreaming caused me to have short term memory problems. ... Show Full Comment
