Has anyone else tried L-glutamine? It’s very relaxing.
I took 500mg (apparently the max safe dose is about 30 GRAMS a day), so little chance of over dosing
It’s quick acting. It took 15 minutes to stop me feeling distressed. It seems to last for a few hours.
I’m going to try 1 gram tomorrow.
It looks like a no-go if you have a mood disorder though. This is from webmd :
Bipolar disorder: Glutamine might increase the risk for mania or hypomania in people with this condition.
Medications used to prevent seizures (Anticonvulsants) interacts with GLUTAMINE
Medications used to prevent seizures affect chemicals in the brain. Glutamine may also affect chemicals in the brain. By affecting chemicals in the brain, glutamine may decrease the effectiveness of medications used to prevent seizures.
Some medications used to prevent seizures include phenobarbital, primidone (Mysoline), valproic acid (Depakene), gabapentin (Neurontin), carbamazepine (Tegretol), phenytoin (Dilantin), and others.
