I switched l-theanine brands and was slowly going bananas. A couple of hours ago, I took some of my old brand, and had my sanity restored. I’m coming off benzos, so need all the help I can get.
My old brand is this :
The brand that didn’t work is this
Hi, I don’t really know why but sometimes it might be due to how pure the l-theanine is. I buy mine in the UK from Health Span or at least shall in the future. Solgar produce them too but they are way too expensive for me…
All e(Y)e Know is Since My Doctor Started Trusting Me and My Intentions , SHE PRESCRIBED PROPRANOLOL (!!!) … ,
Tis tha Best … ,
WHY You Ask (???) ,
Because it is ,
It looks like one dosage was 4 times greater than the other.
Well spotted. Yes, I take 4 capsules of the 100mg brand. The 4 capsules = 400mg and the difference really is night and day when compared to the one capsule containing 400mg.
It’s a pity, I tried the 400mg per capsule brand because it’s much cheaper and more convenient.
It could be because the 100mg brand contains more of the green-tea leaf, and the 400mg brand just contains pure l-theanine. Don’t know.
Edit: I started on 300mg, as I found 400mg too much to begin with.
I think I should be on benzo’s well I mean Ativan. I may ask for them. I don’t want them everyday, just for night’s like tonight. If I could just get a few a week for prn I would be happy. I keep triggering and I’ve already had a dosage increase, I don’t want to go any higher. I’m OK most of the time but reality is starting to dawn on me that I’m a lifer when it comes to this illness.
I’ve got a PRN for Klonopin. I have to be very careful with it. I am grateful the doc gave it to me; but, it is highly addictive. For the most part 25 mg of benadryl every 4 hours when I’m not doing well seems to take care of the anxiety when things are breaking down. The Klonopin is for when things broke down.
