I take xanax now as needed. Not a huge fan of drugs at all and since I am now working towards my cert in natual healing, I'm always on the look-out for natural healers.

There is a suppliment called L Theanine. I'm going to start it this week and will post my results. In the meantime, Here is some info you can read and a site where others posted there results
 
 
 
Let me know what you think.

Jen,

Hey there, how is the L Theanine working for you?  I am hoping you will keep us posted.

Thanks for the web-sites too.

Hugs
Kitt

Jen,

Yes, I'm curious. I know you've only been trying it for a week, but do you notice anything about how the L-theanine is working? Or are there any things you notice you have to get used to about taking it - side effects, certain times, etc.?

Hey Jen,
I took L-theanine to try and help my anxiety but it didn't work for me. Let me know how it works for you. I hope it works for you. How much are you taking and when?

Hi, I've een taking it here and there and I do notice I feel more relaxed.
The dose I have is 250 mgs.

My best friend who also has serious depression has been taking it while he tries to ween off wellbutrin and he feels it's working for him.

I've not been taking it daily b/c my anxiety is better, but take it as needed and it seems to be working.There are no side effects at all. It actually relaxed my stomach and I have a lot of stomach troubles
