Jeffy14 - Yes I tried GABA. First time I took it it had a weird effect. My throat felt tingly and uncomfortable, and then I started to feel very very sedated, but not in a good way. I just felt...weird.
However, whenever I've took it since it has had little effect! Very odd.
I may try it again at a higher dose.
I tried 5HTP but it had weird effects on me. I felt disorientated and dizzy and got heart palpitations. And it didn't help this wired problem.
As for paracetamol - that's a painkiller in the UK? Not sure how that would help. In any case I do take them for pain but they haven't helped this problem.
I do find valerian helps a little bit. It's not a miracle, but it is kinda soothing. I tend to take it at night.
Thanks for your answer.
I bought 5htp and Gabba to try it out when I'm wired
Also, yes paracetamol is a painkiller but it really puts me asleep.
When I'm really wired, I take 1g but it usually does not work and I wake up in the next hour so when I wake up I take another 1g.
It really makes a difference for me.
They also sell Ibuprofen or paracetemol (advil PM or tylenol PM)+ Diphenhydramine.
Diphenhydramine puts you asleep but I noticed I have a lot of troubles to wake up the next morning. Yes you fall asleep but the next morning you still fell asleep for long hours...
Give it a try, maybe it's different for you.
