Down to 400mg of L-theanine a day


#1

At one point I was on the maximum 1200mg a day. I tapered myself down to 400mg. L-theanine saved my bacon a few times. I take the 400mg at 8pm and it helps my sleep.

I could probably quit 400mg cold turkey if I needed to.

I just started it at night. I didn’t realise you had to taper off it. Perhaps I should stop taking it ? I have been on it about 2 weeks. I didn’t realise you could take 1200mg. How long have you been taking it for. Do you think 200mg would help you ? That’s what I’m taking currently.

200mg does something for me. It’s like it straightens out my thoughts a bit. But 100mg does nothing.

There’s no need to taper off 200mg but you have to taper off large amounts , certainly 1200mg.


#4

Everyone needs different amounts of meds 200mg for you could do the same as 1200 to someone else.


#5

Wow. This is big news. Well done.


#6

Hmm… I’m feeling the activating effects of abilify much more now. I think the higher dose of L-theanine was keeping a damper on it.


#7

Yeah I could see that being the case.


#8

Maybe the abilify activating effects will subside over a couple of weeks on only 400mg l-theanine?


#9

It’s ok , I’ll roll with it. If I’m getting more energy I’m not going to complain ( yet :joy: )


#10

Side note: am vaping a lot less on my new 6mg liquid. Not sure if it is slightly stronger or maybe it’s the effects of the depixol?


#11

Or maybe it’s just the copious amount of coffee I drink isn’t being counteracted anymore too. Who knows… Like I said no complaints just yet.


#12

I’d really like to give up vaping. But I’ve nothing else to do.


#13

Yeah I hear you. With all available knowledge right now, I think there are a lot worse vices you could have.


#14

Yes, ain’t that the truth. I won’t be giving up anytime soon but it’s definitely on my radar.


#15

Not to say in 20 years all vapers heads might fall off, we just don’t know.


#16

Haha ! :joy: That would probably be an improvement for me though.


#17

I got ice menthol flavour, but it is pretty much the same as menthol


#18

Menthol flavours crack some plastic tanks. Just sayin’


#19

Interesting. Will keep an eye on it
