    GABA is great, however, from supplementation, very little, if any at all, will cross the blood brain barrier. If you really want the GABA effects, you should take L-Theanine at 800mg daily split into 2 doses (400mg each), this will boost your natural production with numerous added benefits.

    Melatonin and Benadryl have helped me sleep in the past for a basic over the counter option. There's also a sleep combo from a few brands that contains Melatonin + L-Theanine + Trytophane.

    I used Gabapentin before and found it useless - it's a pharmaceutical analog to GABA, and is somewhat halfway between a benzo and narcotic. YMMV.

    Well, it's addictive, maybe not as much as phenibut, but it still is. I would suggest at first to try maybe 5htp. Good luck!
