> also, as someonementioned GHB, phenibut can be helpful, although tolerance and addiction risks would keep me from using it regularly. but if you started an MAOi and need some sleep occasionally, it could be usable. I'd be doubleplus carful if you also have other hypnotics.
I second phenibut. I have been using it for the past couple weeks to good effect. It's very good for sleep maintenance, yet you feel pretty normal in the morning. Just a little tired. It's not like the other weak junk that's sold as supplements. I tried valerian before this, and the difference is enormous. It's more comparable to a benzo than to something like 5-htp. I have read that the quality varies between brands, though. I've been using SNS.
This is because my doctor refused to prescribe ambien. But I don't miss it now that I've found phenibut. I just wish I had something else to rotate to.
I have a complex inferiority.
