I must agree that Xyrem (GHB) is the powerful 'exotic' medication I have ever used. I have been on various AD's and combo's. Small doses of GHB taken throughout the day create a feeling of calm alertness. It also elevated my mood to the point where it is a joy and privilege to feel alive.
It has been discovered that our brains have GHB receptors, as we produce it endogenously (inside our bodies). How it could be banned as a natural supplement, licensed and then sold as a pharmaceutical is criminal.
If used properly, I think this chemical has the potential to give hope to many that have never felt true relief and joy before.
It warrants more investigation......
