Recently I have used a medicine called Nardil for issues of social anxiety and low mood - the thing with nardil is that it gives very good results in 2 weeks, and last for 3-4 months.. but then it poops out... which is so damn irritating, cause else that would have been the final solution for my issues.
I wonder therefore if we have some bright minds here, with some experience that could give me their best bet on what to use to calm down my anxiety - klonopin has a very good effect..bordering on desinhibition, but I dont like that it makes my mind and cognitive abilities a bit blurred, and sedates too much spec. eyes.. - My anxiety is often related to social environment, small talk one-on-one with people I dont know that well.. and so on .. I think also depressive feelings, which come as a side-effect of this social anxiety is also a comorbid issue which could be good to adress as well...
So, yes.. thanks in advance to everyone .. and I would as well promise the person that helps me find a more or less nootropic/natural solution that alleviates my issue .. a money prize of 500 usd. Not kidding.!!! Resolving this issue to a certain extent has a lot more value to me!!
, 2 grams twice per day. Noopept
20mg twice per day. These will give you peace of mind and will reduce anxiety to a great extent. Rhodiola Rosea
according to the bottle for 30 days (Rosavin brand). This should normalize your brain as it is considered a powerful "adaptogen". You should take it on an empty stomach. I highly recommend it. Rosavin is the only brand that was studied scientifically as far as I know. I understand there are many brands out there, and not all may be standardized as this one is. Also, if you are faced with a particularly difficult social situation then I recommend sulbutiamine
(900mg). It increases sociability and mood. I can give you my address whenever.
I suffered from extreme anxiety and panic attacks and social anxiety during my high school and early college years. I also abused drugs. Needless to say my brain was not functioning optimally. Long story short I no longer take Klonopin, nor do I suffer from panic attacks, and I am as social as can be.
Social anxiety can compound matters when dealing with the opposite sex. Some feel that a heightened libido increases confidence even if you do not suffer from sexual dysfunction. Further, testosterone plays a key role in confidence and mood and freeing up testosterone naturally can be accomplished with the herb Tongkat Ali
. Make sure it is sourced from Indonesia (pasak bumi) and stay away from Malaysian varieties as the potency is not there and the quality is inconsistent and sometimes stretched with Viagra and/or yohimbine. Stick with the Pasak Bumi brand and you will be in good shape. I take the 1:200 extract as a performance enhancer for my weightlifting and it increases endurance and muscle tone. But the other effects are just as desirable. I found the best price for Tongkat from Barlowes Herbal Elixirs.
All of those supplements have worked for me and improve my quality of life.
