GABA Concern...
 
To any of you who use or have used GABA...I think I need some guidance here...

I ordered GABA from Amazon and it came yesterday, so I took one about 3 pm yesterday and I know it worked because in about 20 min or so, my head felt it was going to burst. Lasted about 30 minutes before finally abating. Other than that I could tell no difference. It was 500 mg by the way. It kinda frightened me since I had a stroke in '07 and never have a headache normally.

Is this a normal response? Maybe MCS can tell me if he knows or someone else who has tried it.

Yes it is. I took at bedtime to relax me ... you do adjust to it over time. I did not find it helped me sleep, but considering that it is the end product of the enzyme, GAD-65, it might be worth thinking about!

Thats normal Patdart. What happens to me and I am taking 2- (750mg) tabs 3 times a day right now due to stress, is just how you described it and flush tingly feeling then after it goes away a calm comes over.

This is just an observation and I have no evidence otherwise. My wife takes 4 (750mg) tabs about 30 minutes before bed time and she says she doesn't feel hardly a thing. If I took 4 of them and I have in the past its a real head rush of a thing for me. I think as your body rebuilds its reserve of GABA you don't get quite the same feeling as you do the first time around.

Pat if they are in a pill form maybe try half a dose. They work good for muscle aches and pains. Check you BG levels if they were elevated from stress they will probably come down.
