Supplements for Anxiety
Hi Wray, I'm planning to take tryptophan, GABA, B6 and Taurine for anxiety while I'm using progesterone and as the anxiety symptoms have worsened. The GABA only comes in 500 mg - should I split that in half to start? You recommended that these be taken with 25 mg of vitamin B6. Can I take them all together (at night since the tryptophan should be taken at night) with one tablet of 25 mg B6 or do they each need 25 mg of B6?
I tried increasing my dose to 1 tsp at once and the anxiety was so strong after that. I find I can only increase by 1/2 tsp at a time. I'm currently at 1 1/2 tsp spread out 3 times in the day. The anxiety is still bad. How long should I wait to increase it by another 1/2 tsp? I'm just waiting it out to see if it improves before I have to increase it.
I'm also curious about why and how you increased your dose to 170 mg a day of progesterone after you were on 20-40 mg, which resolved your symptoms after 6 months. Wouldn't it have been okay to stay on 20-40 mg at that point since you were symptom free? Or did you find that you needed more as you got older? Thanks for everything.
