FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Will Gabatrol work for me?
Most people who take Gabatrol experience increased relaxation, a sense of well-being, and reduced stress & anxiety within 30 minutes and some as quick as 15 minutes. The success rate of Gabatrol is extraordinarily high, with as many as 99% of users reporting positive results. Please keep in mind, however, that every person is different and individual results will vary.
How long does a single dose of Gabatrol continue working?
On average, Gabatrol’s effects last for 4-6 hours after a single dose. Of course, individual results vary, and some users report that Gabatrol continues working for eight hours or more.
Is Gabatrol a prescription medication?
No, Gabatrol is a natural supplement, not a drug. A prescription is not necessary to purchase Gabatrol. (Keep in mind that Gabatrol should not be considered a replacement for FDA-approved medication or professional medical treatment.)
Should I take Gabatrol every day, or only “as needed”?
Gabatrol is best when used cyclically or periodically (3-5 days on, 2-4 days off for example). If you struggle with chronic anxiety or stress, you can use Gabatrol everyday for uninterrupted relief. For everyday use, its best to use smaller amounts. “The least amount possible to achieve the desired result” is what we recommend.
On the other hand, if you experience occasional stress or anxiety or infrequent depression, you can take Gabatrol “as needed” to enhance positive feelings when you need it most. Gabatrol achieves high success rates for most all types of stress and anxiety. Some users only use Gabatrol on weekends when they are going out to socialize and do not want to drink alcohol in order to relax and unwind.
How many servings should I take at once? And how many times per day should I take Gabatrol?
A single dose of 2-4 capsules (1/2 to 1 teaspoon powder) is sufficient for most people, but in some cases taking 5-6 caps (1.25 tsp) at once may be more effective. Start small and increase dose if needed, especially if you weight less than 140 pounds.
For children, consult with a physician. We have parents reporting great results with 1 capsule or 1/4 tsp of powder.
Q. Can I take Gabatrol if I am currently taking a prescription anti-anxiety medication?
In general, Gabatrol can be safely combined with prescription sedatives, including benzodiazepines such as Valium® (diazepam), Xanax® (alprazolam), and Ativan® (lorazepam). Keep in mind that Gabatrol may increase the effects of sedative medications, although this interaction is not unsafe at recommended doses. If you’re taking any type of sedative medication, use caution when driving or operating heavy machinery until you’re familiar with the effects of Gabatrol. Some users report that Gabatrol potentiates anti-anxiety drugs in a positive way and allows them to obtain relief from a lower dose of medication. Others report being able to skip taking their medications for stress when they take Gabatrol. If you are currently taking prescription medication, it’s always a good idea to talk to your doctor before taking Gabatrol or any new supplement.
Can I take Gabatrol if I am currently taking a prescription anti-depressant medication? In general, Gabatrol can be safely combined with prescription SSRI antidepressants, including Celexa® (citalopram), Lexapro® (escitalopram), Luvox® (fluvoxamine), Paxil® (paroxetine), Prozac® (fluoxetine), and Zoloft® (sertraline), as well as non-SSRI reuptake inhibitors such as Effexor® (venlafaxine) and Wellbutrin® (bupropion). Gabatrol should not be combined with MAO inhibitors. If you are currently taking prescription medication, it’s always a good idea to talk to your doctor before taking Gabatrol or any new supplement.
Can I take Gabatrol if I am currently taking Lisinopril or any other prescription for high-blood pressure?

Can I take Gabatrol if I am already taking prescription medications?
