500mg is enough for me.
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 !
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.
Man this stuff helps you sleep.
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.
My TMG arrived today.
I’ll take some later this evening and report back.
Ok. I’ve just taken 1000mg. Lets see how this pans out !
Right. 2 hours later. 1000mg TMG.
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.
Just ordered some from Amazon hopefully they can help with this depression
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.
@everhopeful that sucks that it didn’t do nothing for you
