Regarding GHB, I haven't tried it, but I imagine it's a true social phobia killer since it increases GABA release (indirectly through stimulation of GHB receptors), increases serotonin turnover rate (not to be confused with increasing serotonin levels) and has rewarding properties via mu-opioid activity. Also, the dopamine release upon waking is a plus. But I'm staying away from it until they have a cheap, extended release version with proven safety.
Regarding the PROGLUMIDE, the only other med I'm taking now with it is .5 mg Klonopin every other day. The Buprenorphine is completely out of my system now. Therefore starting tomorrow, I'm going to increase the Proglumide dose to 1200-1600 mg a day so that I can truly isolate the effects its having and make a decision about its value in the fight against Social Phobia.
