Default GABA Supplement?

Anyone have success with it?
I've read different things about it.
Is it bad for you long term?

I've picked up Goodbye Stress to have in my home which includes GABA. I haven't used it, yet. Though I recognize that supplements are not regulated by the fda, I've seen some positive feedback in some non pc types of settings.

Maybe ask a pharmacist? I'm not well versed in dietary/nutritional supplements.

Default Re: GABA Supplement?

I've taken picamilon for anxiety. I took it for over 2 weeks with no side effects. Picamilon is a mix of GABA and vitamin 3. In general, I felt mentally better than I usually do (anxiety, explained and unexplained mood swings). I haven't tried any other GABA supplements. I think it is OK to take long term. It is supposed to have next to no side effects. Most studies appear to involve animal testing, though, which always makes me suspicious. This is all the information and experience I have, so definitely get more opinions.

Default Re: GABA Supplement?

I'm currently taking GABA supplements (500mg and just GABA).
I had heard from several people that it wasn't good to take them for over 2 months straight (I have no idea why); but when I asked by my Pdoc she said it was okay, and that she had even put children on it, so it's not harmful.
My experience is that it helps me stay a little more calm, but the effect is not too big. There are no side effects that I know of (as long as you don't go over the recommended dose)
