I have Dystonia, spadmodic torticulosis, and after being on muscle relaxers for 5 years I started looking for a natural alternative so that I could get off the prescription muscle relaxers.

For 6 days I tried the NOW brand of Gaba, along with a variety of other supplements, and I was experiencing a panicky feeling, shortness of breath, constricted chest, tingling skin (chest and arms) and pounding heart. I took 1/4 tsp in the morning on an empty stomach, along with magnesium. When I separated the two, it was the GABA that caused the reaction.

After I took 1 GABA pill, as instructed on the label, about an hour later, I had shortness of breath, dizziness, and a weird heart feeling. I fe ... Show Full Comment

I tried GABA 750 mg and although it makes me very relaxed and calm but feel that I am more groggy and has less stamina. I am afraid that this product is just as other SSRI which knocks people down and make them more sedated. Any one has any feedback. I don't mind being anxious as long I will maintain my high energy and activity.
