As a great way to break in my blog, and hopefully to aid others in their search for information on Phenibut addiction and withdrawal...I've decided to log my tapering experience for everyone to see!
A little background first...my wife and I have been taking Phenibut daily for roughly the last month, in doses of about 8-10g minimum, sometimes more. She's been taking around 6g per day. Originally we started doing it for the crystal clarity Phenibut provides. I've heard, from more than one person, that Phen feels like the "Limitless" drug to them. I can totally relate.
I really hope that this log helps someone out that's going through something similar. I went through so many forums, blogs, etc. looking for information on Phenibut withdrawals and such and I'm just really dissatisfied with the amount of information that's out there. I definitely want to add to it.
Anyway, not to ramble. Let's get on to the actual tapering.
Phenibut Taper: Day 1
I woke up feeling relatively decent this morning. My last dose of Phenibut was at 5 P.M. the day before, and I still felt pretty normal. In my experience, withdrawals don't really show themselves on this stuff until after 36 hours from the last dose, so no worries there.
1 P.M. was dosing time. 8g has been my daily dose for a while, so I decided to start off a few grams lower and took 5g. A few hours and some lunch later, I started to get a familiar warmth and relaxation in my muscles. Whoops...overshot it.
Unexpectedly, 5g was actually more than I needed, as I got an actual light high. So tomorrow I'm going to take a leap and just go with 3g. I'm expecting that I won't really feel any discomfort until a few days on a dose that low, but I'll be sure to report anything for reference here.
Wifey's dose has been a bit lower than mine. She's been on about 6g a day, so she jumped down to 4 and got the same high I did. She says she'll likely drop down to 2 tomorrow. Hopefully that isn't too fast for us.
Signing off on an uneventful day!
