In reply to withdrawl, posted by rutt on May 27, 2004, at 12:26:28

Hi Russ, in my earlier post I mentioned that my wife is down from 1.0 mg daily to 0.5 mg daily and is taking 2500 mg L-glutamine, 500 mg L-tyrosine, 2 cups of strong green tea (L-theanine) and exercising 20 mintues daily. The supplements are truly helping her withdrawl as there was one episode where she stopped the glutamine for 2 days and suffered a mild but real acute anxiety episode which disappeared when she resumed the glutamine. So, I'd suggest trying a similar supplementation with glutamine but I wouldn't try the tyrosine if you are prone to panic attacks as there is literature that tyrosine might increase the chance of panic attacks. Also, Laura915 suggested that she was taking up to 1500 mg daily of GABA when she stopped the drug completely and is now down to a maintenance dose of 500 mg daily so you could probabaly add that as well. However, I would not take the glutamine at the same time as the GABA but a different times of the day, glutamine in the morning and GABA in the evening or before going to sleep. Hope this helps.
