What is Phenibut HCL?
Phenibut HCL slows down the neural processes in your brain via GABA. GABA is a neurotransmitter present in your brain. Exactly how Phenibut HCL affects GABA is not yet clear. However, the level of dopamine in your blood increases after taking Phenibut HCL. Dopamine is an emotion regulator and provides motivation and happiness, among other things. Deficiency of dopamine can cause Parkinson’s disease. The effect of Phenibut in the brain is similar to how alcohol works, without the bad properties of alcohol such as impaired coordination. Do not combine alcohol and Phenibut HCL with each other. HCL stands for hydrochloride, which is a salt. There is another form of Phenibut, Phenibut F.A.A.. F.A.A. stands for Free Amino Acid.

Slight side effects may occur with the use of Phenibut. This can be a headache or increased mild depressive feelings. High Doses of Phenibut can be toxic and lead to a lowered body temperature. When stopping Phenibut withdrawal symptoms may occur after taking too high doses for a long time.
The Coordination Point Assessment and Monitoring of New Drugs (CAM Coordination Point Assessment and Monitoring of New Drugs), in collaboration with the Committee on Risk Assessment for New Drugs, prepared a quick scan in 2019 about Phenibut.
“In recent years, the interest in the use of Phenibut has increased. In the Netherlands, the number of reports of addiction, withdrawal symptoms and intoxication due to phenibut use has also increased. The number of these reports is still small. Many of the intoxications were much higher doses of Phenibut taken than in clinical studyies. In addition, in almost half of the cases, other drugs were taken in addition to Phenibut.”
“Due to the potential health risk associated with the use of Phenibut, the Risk Assessment Committee is currently recommending new drugs to continue monitoring their use. The Commission is also concerned that Phenibut is readily available in supplements on the Internet, while the web shops do not warn about the side effects, dependence and/or tolerance that can occur with phenibut use, which is why the Commission advises to warn the user group about the negative sides of the drug.”
