In reply to How to decrease NE ?, posted by mav27 on January 1, 2009, at 1:51:03

Hey, I think you've done an awesome job monitoring your reactions to various drugs. I believe there are clues in how we respond to things, and you seem to be putting some clues together into some sort of picture. It makes sense to me. That being said, biochemistry is way way way more complicated than we know. What we talk about here is just the tip of the iceberg compared to all the stuff that is really going on that we don't know about.

Link has good ideas. High dose VitC and magnesium will calm NE way down. That's why I can't take them. I am the opposite of you. My brain likes NE. VitC and Mag make me feel so much worse.

I used to have a terrible time with this racing anxiety/paranoia/scaredness thing when I woke up every morning. I didn't go to bed that way. My doc did a test and showed my cortisol, related to NE, was sky high off the charts when I woke up. I found that VitC before bed almost completely killed that waking friekiness stuff.

As far as drugs, I don't know. You can block the effects of NE in selected areas, depending on the med, but I don't know about reducing it. All amino acids compete for entry into the brain. You could possibly take tryptophan supplements to change the ratio of what gets in the brain, squashing out some of the phenylalanine and tyrosine which eventually make NE. Along the same lines, since you respond to GABA-ish things, you could try supplements of GABA, glycine, taurine, magnesium, l-theanine, niacinimide. They all work in the same arena as benzos by calming down and balancing excitatory things such as NE.
