Wow. Just wow. Spent the past two or three months getting my diet and excercise in order for the first time in my life, and have been feeling better then ever (almost down to my goal of 10% bodyfat, from 24% originally. Been slowly adding in and experimenting with different suppliments, amino acids, nootropics and the like to make the most out of my new lifestyle and help with various stresses and challenges in my life, etc.... To that end I started taking an adaptogenic stack of Rhodiola Rosea and Ashwagandha. I was impressed within a week. Loved 'em! That led me to try a few more with mixed results... of particular interest is the effect of Rhodiola and Chocamine on the wife's libido. Yikes! (Chocamine is basically chocolate extract... all the good antioxidants and actives from the cocoa plant. It rocks!) Anyway, one of the ones I wanted to try was on backorder, but yesterday the good postal carrier showed up at the door with my long awaited tub of Phenibut powder. I capped (i.e. filled an empty gel-cap) about 300 or 400 mg (small dose) of it right off the bat and downed it with my coffee. Nothing. No effect. I went back over my notes and bookmarks for Phenibut, and remembered one tip from a guy on a bodybuilding forum which advised people who were taking too much (and having to deal with residual effects the next day) ... that if the desired effects were wanted around 9:00 pm, the best way to do it was to take a moderate dose around 3:00-ish and another one around 7:00-ish. Seemed like an awful big pain in the arse to me, but I figured what the hell, I had the stuff, might as well try it that way. Holy Cow. I'm amazed. I felt simply awesome last night, and progressively better and better as the night wore on until I finally melted into bed, and slept like a baby. I think I woke up in the same position I fell asleep in. (Big deal for me because I'm not a good sleeper, I always toss and turn and fight insomnia 3 or 4 times a week... hence the large post count here.) I've heard and read people talking about feeling 'euphoric' before, in regards to recreational drugs and the like... but I've never actually felt that way myself, nothing I would ever term as euphoric... until last night. Now, I understand euphoria. I've been up for about 4 or 5 hours this morning, and the kick in the ass is that it's still with me. A much lesser degree than late last night, and not nearly as 'buzzed' off it, but still euphoric, pleasant, and just happy as hell (but competely and totally functional at work). Can't seem to get the smile off my face, no matter what. The half-life on this stuff is lonnnnnnng. So I'm curious, anybody else have positive results with any nootropics? Anybody here ever try Phenibut?
