GHB is very interesting stuff. The media scare campaign and the government's increasing moves to make it illegal - in any form - are tragically misguided.

I have used the products RenewTrient and SomatoPro, which are not GHB, but metabolize into it rather quickly. It works very well to help me sleep - as good as anything I have ever tried - and the really nice part is that there are *no* side-effects the next day. At a lower dose, it is a relaxing and disinhibiting "high," and I guess that's why it gets so much negative attention. I'm not much interested in that - its strictly a medicine for me - but I have noticed that my desire for alcohol has completely gone away since I started using these supplements.

I did talk to my psychiatrist before trying it out, and she thought it would be OK. I take 10mg Celexa (previously 50mg Zoloft) with it, and there has not been a problem. RenewTrient is getting very hard to find - I think the SomatoPro is the only one being produced at this point. Chemically, SomatoPro is 1,4-tetramethylene glycol, which converts to GHB through some kind of enzymatic process. Actual GHB is not available for sale in the US at all - legally, that is - but apparently it is quite easy to make.

The main thing, if one is going to try it, is just to use common sense. As a CNS depressant, it should not be mixed with alcohol or any *other* depressants. It has a very steep dose/response curve, so you need to be cautious, start with a low dose, and increase it only gradually. And, of course, you don't want to be driving or doing anything else that requires you to be awake and alert for your safety. But used sensibly, I think it is really about as harmless and benign as they come. Its quite a simple compound, a natural product of human metabolism, and breaks down completely to carbon dioxide and water. No toxicity AT ALL. GHB is a Good Thing, and it could help alot of people very much.
