> You're kidding! This thing increases SWS? Would you feel fully rested after this 4 hour sleep period, or would you need more? I have been trying to find something that would increase SWS for a while now. Is it perscription or one of these shifty supplement things?

> >GHB seems to help not only with the onset of sleep but also with the quality of sleep. According to a study done in the US with patients having fibromyalgia, GHB increases slow wave sleep and decreases the severity of alpha (wave) anomaly. This makes GHB very different from barbituates which tend to interfere with sleep quality.
> > Does this mean GHB and Renewtrient should be taken for serious sleep problems? Whatever you decide, note the following cautions:
> > 1) You canít be awoken when under GHB. If there is a fire or a child needs your help, forget it.
> > 2) GHB has a rather short half life and after about 4 hours of sleep a person will wake usually. My personal experience was that I awoke with a start, fully awake in seconds. The only way to get back to sleep is to take another dose and wait until it takes effect.
> > 3) I donít believe long term studies have been done on the safety of daily usage of GHB.
> > 4) Iím concerned that people who have trouble sleeping due to sleep apnea may endanger themselves by taking GHB. Remember GHB puts you in a sleep from which you canít be awoken. Could a person with sleep apnea suffocate while on GHB?
> > 5) People with depression tend to be invigorated rather than sedated by GHB. For such people GHB wonít help with sleep.
> > 6) GHB can be abused. I started using GHB in a single daily dose and ended up using it continuously throughout the day. Iíve read accounts of the same thing happening to others. I never had been addicted to drugs but I became dependent on GHB. Truly the most horrific time of my life was a hallucinatory episode I experienced while on GHB. This pushed me into quitting GHB--- but it was a truly grueling drug withdrawal. A tip to the wise, if you take GHB, never exceed the recommended dosage, never take more than two doses per day.

i tried ghb products because they were supposed to help my depression, they really didn't but i got into taking it because it helped pass the time (my doc was refusing to do anything for my depression) sometimes i take about 10 gm of ghb a day, i know i'm a wreck but at least it doesn't hurt your liver like alcohol. i'm slightly drunk rt now, ran out of ghb, oh well
