Re: Adderall, Alcohol, GHB(Xyrem), Benzos and GABA btnd

Thanks for the response. Does the Xyrem wear off that quickly that you have to take it every two-three hours? Have you experienced any tolerance to it?

Also, how does adderall+xyrem compare with Nardil for social phobia?

> > > I know this has been addressed before, but I'm trying to get a handle on everything. So this is a poll. For those who have tried both Dexedrine and Adderall, I have the following question. I have rather social phobia, the anxiety symptoms of which are controlled by klonopin. Now, I currently supplement with adderall as I heard the combo is quite prosocial, but it just makes me hyperfocused and somewhat less social for some reason.

I mean, I know alcohol has effects on many different neuro systems, but what do you think is the primary reason for it's prosocial effects? (I'm thinking opioids)

> I totally disagree. Alcohol's prosocial effect can't be simply explained by GABA action - it must be few things combined - GABA, some dopamine stimulation maybe or opioid. Why do I think GABA isn't the only reason? Because benzodiazepines, even the most potent, which are potent GABA agonists and increase GABA levels - have nowhere near the effect that good old alcohol has on person's prosociability. Also Picamilon/Phenibut are GABA-like substances, which although treat anxiety, once again: they are not pro-sociable as alcohol. The only thing that is comparable to alcohol's action is GHB(Xyrem) - but there are 2 mechanisms involved: dopamine and GABA.
> Mike - I wish too that I knew alcohol's mechanism! 3 beer effect is still the best thing on earth for social-anxiety, pro-sociability etc.
> Although my new combo of Adderall+GHB is doing rather well, I'd say at 75% level of alcohol's action. (one substance potentiates the other)
