L-Theanine, has anyone tried it? 12 Years, 9 Months ago  
My doctor prescribed me with Celexa, but it has many adverse side effects and I don't want to take such a medication unless it's a last resort kind of deal. I recently purchased something called "Theanine Serene" from source naturals. It contains:

The amino acid L-Theanine, the neurotransmitter GABA, magnesium to calm muscles and nerves and basil leaf extract to soothe tension.

Here's a page where you can read all about it:


Basically, I'm thinking about taking this twice daily, practicing meditation and starting to swim on a daily basis and see if I can beat my anxiety disorder in a natural and healthier way.

Let me know what you guys think please!

Im sorta in your position as well, my psychiatrist recommended me for an SSRI or something don't remember what name was i would say he said prozac or zoloft. and i said i did not want to take it since i hear these medications have some adverse effects and that i would need to take it for 6-9 months for my panic disorder...but i have a feeling it will be way longer than that since i know some people who taken for about 10-20 years im guessing. and im trying to do things naturally but it sorta taking a toll. I would love to research this more to see what its a about, but i wonder since theanine is a component of green tea and green tea sorta aggravates anxiety, i would think it theanine itself would create more anxiety maybe? i need to look more into it, but it does sound like a good idea actually.
