Taurine plays a big role in the production of gaba,you were correct in choosing this.Taurine also works or seems to have a incredable synergy with klonopin,i found im able to lower my klonopin dose with it,and still get the same,if not more effectivness.
On a personal note i found the brand to be crucial,dont know any logic begind this,but country life seels a brand,a TABLET form with a very small amount of b6 which aids the taurine to do its thing,and i find this brand to be the only brand i respond too.It is in most general health shops,and sells for about 5 bucks.
Also if your taking it at night,remember its best to take a amino after a protien meal,and with a carb snack which helps drive the taurine as well.
Last a very very small amount of l thenaine,meaning opening up a capsule and taking a small amount of the powder also works well.
So a combo of a small dose of klonopin
L-theanine seems to have a calming and possably sleep induing effect.
Try doing a google search on taurine and gaba and see the results and how big a role it plays in it.
