How are you feeling from the tmg?

It made me drowsy and dopey when I took 1000mg, had to have a long nap. So I’ll be taking it at night instead. It really does provide an excellent, upbeat mood. Less social anxiety as well. I fit in well at a little get together and had no problems socially. I am taking it for the social effects so I am pleased so far. Will update with how it feels in a week or so.

Curses ! I’ve ordered 1000mg capsules. I’ll see how I get on when they arrive. I might have to order 500mg capsules.

Then again, feeling drowsy and dopey might be good too !

Just fyi

I’ve ordered tmg (betaine anhydrous) not tmg (betaine hcl).

I don’t think the hcl version is good for your stomach and also not the one used in the study.

I got the same kind as you did, tmg betaine anhydrous. It also says on the bottle to take it with food, which I didn’t, so that might have made the side effects stronger, I am thinking. I will be taking it with food from now on.

Does TMG help with positive symptoms or is just good for anxiety?

Hmm thinking about trying it too.

I used to drink beet juice but then I got a bad batch and now I can’t stand the smell of it. Beet juice is great until you have brilliant pink explosive liquid sh*ts.

Sorry to anyone who was having a meal.

Right. 2 hours later. 1000mg TMG.

No sedation
Slightly clearer head
Slightly better mood
Slightly more energy

Not a game changer for me. BUT I’m already taking supplements that give me a clearer head,better mood and more energy. So if I wasn’t taking those I’d be pretty happy with it.

I wonder would this supplement be good for people with intrusive thoughts as it does seem to cut down on “thought-chatter” for me.

3 hours later, things seem to have returned to the way they were before I took TMG. So the effects only lasted 3 hours for me.

I’m taking abilify so I don’t know if that’s the reason I had such a lacklustre time with it.

After 3 days I developed a headache so I stopped. I’m not sure if the headache was caused by tmg, but it’s a shame cause I liked it.

I may only take one every week rather than everyday.

But I’m not sure if I will continue.

Interesting stuff

@Thesickguy

They do help with depression in my case but I was only mild depressed.

I don’t think you should take too much, everyone has a different tolerance though. I might take it every now and then, but I’m not sure. I’ll try it again in a few months

@Green I also only suffer mild depression so I think I will start out on only 500 mg like you and see were it goes

I took another 1000mg today. I don’t know if it’s placebo or not,but it might be helping my motivation. The effect it has on me is subtle though.
